Us Post Boxes

Wall mounted post boxes are typically manufactured using high quality zintec steel and aluminium extrusion or brushed stainless steel. Mailboxes are available in a variety of colour finishes to meet the design style of each project and location, finished with polyester powder coated paint from our standard range of RAL colours.

Wall mounted mailboxes are popular with clients who have a requirement for banks of mailboxes but do not have a large depth of wall for recessing. Banks containing high quantities of wall mounted post boxes typically utilise one of our cantilever supports, table frames or pedestal supports which helps to distribute the weight of the product between the location wall and floor.

We offer a huge range of sizes and colours and each wall mounted post box is available with detailed CAD drawings on quotation.

Can banks of multiple mailboxes be wall mounted?

Whether mailboxes can be wall mounted is entirely dependent on the space available at the area of installation. Typically vertical type mailboxes (shorter width, larger height) mailboxes can be wall mounted, whereas horizontal (larger width, shorter height) would generally need support below the mailboxes to disperse the weight distribution.

Another factor that may affect whether mailboxes can be wall mounted only is the quantity of mailboxes required and the configuration of those boxes. Please get in touch with us for any queries regarding wall mounting mailboxes.

How are mailboxes fitted to a wall?

The mailboxes we supply are fitted with fixing holes in the rear panel of the mailboxes which are used to secure through and fix into the wall. The fixing holes used in mailboxes vary in location and quantity depending on the mailbox model used in that particular project.

The installation of wall mounted post box is fairly straight forward and requires basic DIY skills. Use the following steps as a guideline:

  • – Whilst holding the mailbox at the desired location, use a spirit level to ensure the mailbox is in the correct position
  • – Open the front door of the mailbox and mark the wall through the mounting holes in the back of the post box
  • – Drill and plug the wall with appropriate fixings
  • – Screw fix through the mounting holes in the back of the post box, into the plugs now fixed in the wall

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need additional support when fixing my post box to a wall?

Here at The Safety Letterbox Company, we supply mailboxes for both single and multi-occupancy residences, and depending on the quantity of mailboxes you use, you may need additional support to aid the fixing of the post boxes to the wall. Additional supports include items such as cantilever support brackets, support tables and legs.

What type of wall can post boxes be mounted onto?

Post boxes can be mounted onto walls featuring sufficient strength, typically constructed using brick or blockwork. If fixing to a wall that uses a render or other similar material, then a fixing must be made through the material and into the brickwork behind.

Wall mounted post box or freestanding?

Wall mounted post boxes are popular in British homes as they are fixed near to the property entrance door, without taking up much space for both mounting the item and when it is in use.

Freestanding post boxes are used a lot in homes that are tucked away down rural country lanes, fitted at the end of a driveway which allows post-delivery personnel to easily and quickly deliver items without having to travel down a private road to post items.

  1. Contains items such as pens, pencils, keys, or coins that cause the thickness of the mailpiece to be uneven; or loose keys or coins or similar objects not affixed to the contents within the mailpiece. Loose items may cause a letter to be nonmailable when mailed in paper envelopes; (see 601.3.3).

2.3 Minimum Flexibility Criteria for Flat-Size Pieces

Flat-size pieces must be flexible. Boxes—with or without hinges, gaps, or breaks that allow the piece to bend—are not flats. Tight envelopes or wrappers that are filled with one or more boxes are not flats. At the customer‘s option, a customer may perform the following test on their own mailpieces. When a postal employee observes a customer demonstrating that a flat-size piece is flexible according to these standards, the employee does not need to perform the test. Test flats as defined in 201.4.3.

2.4 Uniform Thickness

Flat-size mailpieces must be uniformly thick so that any bumps, protrusions, or other irregularities do not cause more than 1/4-inch variance in thickness. When determining variance in thickness, exclude the outside edges of a mailpiece (1 inch from each edge) when the contents do not extend into those edges. Also, exclude the selvage of any polywrap covering (see 201.5.3 from this determination. Mailers must secure nonpaper contents to prevent shifting of more than 2 inches within the mailpiece if shifting would cause the piece to be nonuniform in thickness or would result in the contents bursting out of the mailpiece (see 601.3.3).

Flat-size mailpieces that do not meet the eligibility standards in 2.3 through 2.4 are considered parcels and must pay the applicable parcel prices.

No mailpiece may weigh more than 70 pounds or measure more than 108 inches in length and girth combined, except USPS Retail Ground, which may not measure more than 130 inches in length and girth combined.
