Post Boxes UK Designs 350 Unit Communal Mailbox for Student Accommodation

As a leader in designing and developing bespoke mailboxes, Post Boxes UK remains the number #1 choice for student accommodations in the country. Just last summer, PBUK specified a bank of 350 units for purpose-built student development in central Liverpool, its pearlescent gold postboxes listed as a prominent feature of the 1,000-bed establishment.

The Brief

For this brief, the client requested 350 modular mailboxes, each equipped with a high-security lock that was master key compatible. In a shared environment such as student accommodations, it is common for several students to share a single postbox, and as such, the standard two-key per letterbox doesn’t cut it. PBUK supplied a master and up to 12 keys for each communal letterbox, so there were plenty of spares to cover the inevitable losses.

The client decided on wall-recessed mailboxes to maximise floor space in the main reception area and opted for a bespoke RAL finish – 1036 Pearlescent Gold, to complement the interior designer's brief. Post Boxes UK suggested its hugely popular H300-1 post box for the project, which met the client's needs in terms of style and construction and delivered it in stages to coordinate seamlessly with the developer's schedule.

The H300-1 Horizontal Post Box

Thanks to its quality construction and robust design, the H300-1 Horizontal Post Box is perfect for high-capacity applications such as Halls of Residence and student housing. Manufactured to EN13724 regulations, it meets all the specifications listed in the Secured by Design Homes Guide and includes an anti-fishing aperture to restrict unauthorised access.

The H300-1 horizontal mailbox has a front opening aperture to facilitate post retrieval. As it can accommodate A4 documents without bending, this post box is ideal for receiving all kinds of papers and reports, and its sturdy lock ensures only those with a key can access its contents.

Student accommodation mailboxes need to withstand the rigours of daily life with students, and they must be hardwearing, easily accessible, and 100% secure. The Post Boxes UK H300-1 Horizontal Letter Box meets these criteria and has the advantage of looking smart. It comes in over 200 RAL colours and a range of bespoke finishes to complement all interiors, and you can install it using three different methods.
