If you are looking for a way to protect your post as well as preventing burglaries from people putting their hands through the letterbox, then the Anti-Vandal MAX6 letter box is a fantastic choice!
Each letterplate comes with both an external and internal flap to protect your home, and is available in 2 different depths (20-40mm for uPVC doors, and 40-80mm for composite and wooden doors). The letter box is one of the only letterboxes on the market to be awarded ‘Secured by Design’ approval – the police preferred specification:
Each MAX6 letterbox has a black frame surround, with the flaps being made from aluminium. It has many features not found on standard letterboxes, including anti-vandal, anti-snap flap, anti-burgular and anti-scratch facilities:
Anti-Vandal: Each year, house fires are started by vandals putting fireworks through letterboxes. Each letter box has the brushes outward facing (a feature no other letterplate in the industry has). This acts as a visual deterrant to vandals. As the internal cavity is not easily accessible, it makes it a lot harder to put lit fireworks etc. into the cavity. It is easier for postmen to navigate letters through the brushes, so you won’t end up receiving crinkled letters anymore. Also the brushes stop draughts at the point of entry, making the letterplate draught-proof.
Anti-Snap Flap: Makes letterbox flaps snapping off a thing of the past. Each letterplate flap can open to 180 degrees, meaning that it should not snap if listed up too far. Many letter boxes available only open to 90 degress, so when too much force is applied when lifting the flap up, it causes them to snap off. Ultra-flexible springs means that the letterbox can withstand thousands of openings without breaking, making them last even longer! An internal water seal also prevents water getting into the door or panel. which stops letters getting wet as they are posted through the door. The water seal also helps to prevent the flaps from pitting or rusting!
Anti-Burglar: The hidden fittings of the letterbox make burglary very difficult as it is nearly impossible remove it from the outside. The blind bolts make external removal impossible.
Anti-Scratch Frame: With the regular traffic this letter box will get it’s only natural to worry about visible markings on it from scratches either from fitting or from everyday use. The matt coat helps make any markings nearly invisible to the naked eye. Also, the matt coated frame helps to conceal any scratches which are caused by screwdrivers at the time of installation.
