Letterplates (Letterboxes)

Here at UAP we have available a wide range of letterplates, including the UAP Anti Vandal 300mm, one of the only letterboxes on the market to be awarded ‘Secured by Design‘ approval by the Association of Chief Police Officers. Each letterplate comes with both an external and internal flap to protect your customer’s homes, and is available in 2 different depths (20-40mm for uPVC doors, and 40-80mm for composite and wooden doors).

As part of our Nanocoast range we also have available stainless steel letterplates, specifically designed for areas which are within a 25 mile radius of the coast, or within 5 miles of highly populated industrial areas. Made from 304 grade stainless steel, each product in the Nanocoast range has been salt spray tested to ASTM B117 for 2,000 hours, and comes with an industry first LIFETIME coating guarantee, as the products will not pit, rust or corrode no matter what environments you put them in.

We also offer UAP Fire Resistant Anti Vandal letterplates in all aluminium and all stainless steel, lined with special intumescent material which expands to 50 times its size, blocking the hole in the cavity and preventing smoke coming through the cavity. The intumescent is activated at 5 degrees lower than most other intumescent material in the market, meaning that the cavity will be blocked quicker.

The UAP range of letterplates has many features that are not found on standard letterboxes, including the trademarked Anti-Vandal™ facility. Each year house fires are started by vandals putting fireworks through letterboxes. Each UAP Anti-Vandal™ letterplate has the brushes outward facing (a feature no other letterplate in the industry has), giving it 3 great benefits:

1- Having brushes on the front of the door acts as a visual deterrent to vandals. As the internal cavity is not easily accessible, it makes it a lot harder to put lit fireworks etc. into the cavity
2 – It is easier for postmen to navigate letters through the brushes, so you won’t end up receiving crinkled letters anymore.
3 – The brushes stop draughts at the point of entry, making the letterplate draught-proof.

Another great feature of all UAP letterplates is that each letterplate flap can open to 180 degrees, meaning that it should not snap, and making letterplate flaps snapping off a thing of the past. Many letterplates in the industry only open to 90 degrees, so when too much force is applied when lifting the flap up, it causes them to snap off. The ultra-flexible springs means that they can withstand thousands of openings without breaking, making them last even longer. Also, an internal water seal also prevents water getting into the door or panel, which stops letters getting wet as they are posted through, and also helps to prevent the flaps from pitting or rusting.
