Chute Style Mailboxes - Enhanced Security

 

Chute system mailboxes are designed specifically to prevent mail theft. To help facilitate this goal, incoming mail is stowed deep within the lower cavity of the mailbox and cannot be retrieved by anyone without a key. Chute mailboxes protect mail by implementing a hinged panel that opens to the bottom when the front access panel is in the closed position. In addition, all chute style mailboxes provide a solid panel in front of the hinged chute that prevents foragers from accessing the chute release. 

Chute Style mailboxes provide retrieval in one of three ways:

  1. Front Access Panel - (in both locking and non-locking versions)

  2. Rear Access Panel (at the base).

  3. Rear Access Panel (midway along the back of the column).

 

In addition, most Chute Style Mailboxes have large-capacity bins for both incoming and outgoing mail; making them convenient for both the mail service and the homeowner.

Chute-Style Mailboxes - Brace for Impact

 

Many manufacturers have expanded on the chute mailbox theme by ensuring that their mailboxes are impact resistant. 

 

Impact Resistant Mailboxes are either constructed from dense molded plastic or hardened steel. The idea behind concussion-resistant mailboxes is that they will survive out-of-control drivers or snowplows that sometimes collide with column mailboxes.This situation is so prevalent that many mailbox manufacturers have built impact-resistant mailboxes so durable they have survived crashes that sent them a hundred yards from their original location! 

 

The mini-slideshow on the left shows various impact-resistant mailboxes. If you click on the first image you can view an expanded slide show that notes their features. You can access their benefits and pricing at budgetmailboxes.com by clicking on the "go to" link.

Decorative Column Inserts - Style & Longevity

 

Now that manufacturers can cast rust-free aluminum in molds and bend heavy-gauge galvanized steel into precise shapes, the products that grace our outdoor living environments don't deteriorate as rapidly. In fact, most cast aluminum and galvanized steel products can attest to shelf-lives of approximately 30 years (or more).

 

Add to their longevity a rebirth of style, and today's column insert mailboxes are indeed worth considering. The products showcased in the mini-slideshow (to the left), are great examples of old-world charm and updated themes that don't miss a beat when it comes to security-conscious products that keep a homeowner's desire for refinement at the forefront of the design process.
