Reducing Arson Risk

Reducing Arson Risk

Home Office figures suggest arson costs the UK economy some £2 billion annually and is the single largest cause of fires in Britain – more than 3,500 every week. To combat an ever-present crime threat, The Safety Letterbox Company (SLBC) offers a wide range of secure fire-rated and anti-arson mailbox solutions suitable for domestic, public sector or commercial use to protect against attack.

Ideal for commercial premises, SLBC’s range of fire-rated mailboxes has been developed with the Fire Research Laboratory to satisfy the integrity criteria given in BS476 Part 22 1987 Clause 8 for one hour. An optional finish can be added to conform to London Underground surface spread of flame requirement BS476 Part 6 & 7.

Manufactured from zintec steel to a high specification, the vandal-resistant FR mailboxes can be positioned within a designated fire escape route or banked within a fire-rated post room. The range features horizontal or vertical boxes accepting A4-sized items and a rear-retrieval box suitable for wall recessing, surface or panel fixing.

Homeguard is an affordable and practical anti-arson solution, protecting properties and providing peace of mind for occupants. The all-metal enclosed box is installed over the letterbox opening on the inside of a front door to contain mail, unwanted or flammable materials and fire. For extra safety, a discreet fire extinguisher system can also be fitted.

SLBC Managing Director Alison Orrells says: “Arson sadly remains a dangerous threat in modern society. Our specially-designed range of high performance fire-rated products is another significant step forward in our aim of protecting buildings and occupants, while providing a mailing solution.”

The Safety Letterbox Company is the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of lockable mailbox systems and letterbox anti-arson solutions. It offers a comprehensive range of secure solutions for any site profile, location and budget.
