USA: Locking Mailboxes: Locking Mailbox Manufacturers
ABOUT LOCKING MAILBOXES
There are three main types of locking mailbox: residential locking mailboxes, residential locking drop boxes, and multiple locking mailboxes for apartments.
Residential locking mailboxes are available in a wide variety of styles and materials, including aluminium, steel, and brass. They protect against theft and vandalism. Withdrawal of mail requires a key, but the postman does not require a key.
Residential locking drop boxes provide high capacity and large opening, to receive packages as well as letters. They can store several months of residential mail if required. They are normally mounted directly onto the ground, and do not require a post or masonry column.
Locking boxes for apartments are supplied in rectangular arrays. They may be installed through-the-wall, so that mail can be delivered to the outside of the mailbox, and can be retrieved using keys from within the building.
