H260-1 Horizontal Letterbox

Post Boxes UK

The H260-1 Horizontal Post Box is Post Boxes UK’s biggest selling, most commonly specified mailbox for blocks of apartments. Conforming to European Norm EN13724 and Secured by Design's Homes Guide 2016, this space-saving letterbox is the most compact format unit available in the UK which can accept a C4 envelope (A4 document sized) without the need to bend or fold it for delivery.

With dimensions of 260 x 110 x 375mm (width, height, depth) and an overall capacity of just over 10.7 litres, the H260-1 is extremely well suited to high density projects including mixed-use schemes typically in city centres, and student accommodation developments alike.

Configurations/Bank Size

The space-saving, low footprint of the H260-1 allows for a larger quantity of letter boxes to be incorporated into a bank. It is not uncommon for clients to specify large banks of 200+ units; any configuration is possible. The only limit is the amount of space available on site.

This generally requires that large banks be spilt into smaller, more manageable sections for ease of transport and handling, and to minimise the potential for damage. Bank sections sizes can be determined by client to find the right balance between speed of installation and ease of handling. As part of our integrated service, Post Boxes UK includes schematic drawings and packaging to ensure fast, hassle-free handling and installation on site.


With it's semi modular format, the H260-1 multi-occupancy mailbox can be specified for any of the three usual installation methods: recessed-in-wall; face-fixed-to-wall; or as a freestanding stand alone bank of letterboxes with own support legs.


The H260-1 is available in a choice of over 200 different RAL Classic finishes and can be specified to gloss, satin or matt finish levels, dependent upon the RAL colour chosen. Clients may also specify Class 0 flame retardant / resist fire-spread paint to the H260-1 letter box, compliant with BS476 Parts 6 & 7, should this criteria be required to satisfy Building Control and Fire Regulations.

Post Boxes UK also offers the H260-1 communal post box in a range of textured, anodic and premium metallic powder coat finishes, including satin stainless steel, black chrome, gloss copper and matt velvet black to name a few.

In recent years they have also offered multi-coloured banks of mailboxes, giving a more vibrant look; a particularly popular choice for student accommodation projects.


Lead-times for the H260-1 are dependent upon project specifics such as specification and quantity of units required, but are generally in the region of 4 weeks for bespoke built projects.

However, for more technical specifications and larger orders, Post Boxes UK suggests allowing for a little additional lead time. Please contact them for up to date information.
