Home > Companies > DAD UK Ltd > Small Standard Vertical Postbox model 2040 Standard - SBD Compliant

The model 2040 space saving postal box conforms to British Standard EN 13724 (accepts A4 post without having to fold or bend the mail, and has an anti-theft baffle), and is also Royal Mail approved.

It also can be approved by Secured by Design if fitted internally in a lobby, but unlikely to comply if installed outside (contact manufacturer for more details). Because of its narrow size the model 2040 is well suited to projects which require a large number of letter boxes in an internal lobby area. These can be installed internally or externally. The wide choice of surrounds and frames allow the units to be integrated with either the interior or exterior decor of the building, on the wall, recessed into a wall or cladding, or free standing.

The mailboxes and other components can be powder coated in any RAL colour or in stainless steel. A device is fitted as standard behind the flap to reduce the risk of mail theft, and the boxes in this range have good waterproof features. All boxes have a door with a security DAD lock complete with two numbered keys. Extra keys available.

Suitable for internal and external use.
