Mailboxes – replace your old one with a modern one
Mailboxes are a necessity not only for private houses and apartments but for business centers and offices where the amount of correspondence is much bigger. It is a fact that we seldom pay attention to the mailbox and all of a sudden when we look at it we see a worn out object at the very entrance of our home. Do not give up the possibility to replace the old, rusty postal box with something new which will serve you for many years. You have many options to choose the color, the size, design and material and let’s keep in mind that a modern mailbox is much more reliable. Classic models are made of steel with a thickness of 1-1.2 mm and are divided into several compartments, intended for each person living in the building or designed for family homes.
Modern mailboxes – designs and ideas
The design, materials and production technology of mailboxes have changed a lot from ancient times to the present day with the development of industry and technology. Modern mailbox models are made using modern construction materials and technologies, including the use of electronic components. The two main types remain, however, unchanged. Shared mailboxes are typical for multi-storey residential buildings, offices or businesses centers. They are usually placed at the entrance, and are designed for a large number of users. Sectional mailbox models for residential or office buildings are traditionally used to store letters, papers, receipts, etc. They guarantee an exceptional reliability and impressive durability. The installation is very simple and usually you can find them in vertical or horizontal options. A mailbox for individual use is intended for individual private houses. An individual mailbox with integrated lock can be placed on the street: the upper lid is specially designed to protect against rain and a special coating protects the structure from the influence of the external environment.
