Mailbox plastic guide

Who is looking for one mailboxis, should think about a plastic model. Plastic mailboxes are available in many varied colors and designs. Whether you are looking for a classic mailbox, a more antique looking model or a modern design – the versatile range of materials makes the selection of models huge. And that’s not the only benefit of plastic letterboxes.

Mailbox made of plastic – the advantages

Anyone who buys a mailbox made of plastic, decides for a pleasing durable design. The reason for this is the way they are made: These mailboxes are produced by injection molding and receive a hard-wearing surface seal. In addition, they are pleasantly weatherproof and waterproof, because in contrast to metal or wood, plastic is absolutely resistant to moisture. Mailboxes made of plastic are pleasantly light and easy to install, yet very stable and above all easy to care for – it is enough to clean them twice a year with a cleaner suitable for plastics.

What specifications does a mailbox have to fulfill?

The European DIN EN 13724 regulates which properties a private mailbox must meet. The standard refers primarily to the size: Both the box itself and the mailbox slot must have a minimum size, which is based on the dimensions of an envelope of the paper format C4. For a standardized mailbox, a test envelope of this size must fit without difficulty and damage through the slot and fall into the box – without kinking. A protective device prevents after throwing in that the envelope can be fished out by unauthorized persons through the slot again. Furthermore, the standard provides two levels of security against the opening of the box and sufficient protection against ingress of water.

Who decides – for whatever reason – for a non-standard model, should check his plastic mailbox exactly. Only a sufficiently large and deep box accommodates larger mailings easily. Moreover, mail thieves are hampered by a deep box stealing broadcasts. Make sure that the flap over the slot closes completely even after a large-format program or newspaper has been thrown in to prevent the ingress of water.

If you subscribe to a newspaper, you will opt for a newspaper model. The advantage is that the newspaper has a fixed place and is protected from bad weather. Newspaper compartments are available in the classic version as a roll under or above the actual box. More modern mailboxes are available with an integrated newspaper compartment, which can be located between the box and the wall of the house, for example.

How do I attach my mailbox?

Also for the assembly of the mailbox specifications are to be observed. Thus, the German DIN standard 32617 states that mailboxes for delivery staff and recipients must be hung in a conveniently accessible and freely accessible manner. Of course, this is also in your own interest – after all, the deliverer should find the box so easy and can fill without any effort. Attach the box securely: The mounting on the wall or fence should be so stable that filling with four to five kilograms of paper or cardboard poses no problem.

Even if the model is waterproof, choosing a weatherproof location certainly makes sense. If you have the choice, a mounting on the side facing away from the weather is recommended. Above all, the box should be good to see – because unlike in the past, there is no longer just a deliverer. Frequently changing employees of different delivery and parcel services have little time to search for the right mailbox. Therefore, especially with a somewhat hidden attachment, the selection of a bright signal color is a good idea.
