    • Personal outdoor metal mailboxes

    • One of the first criteria used for the classification of community of owners mailboxes is whether they are made to be placed inside or outside .

      Outdoor mailboxes (although they are also valid for placement inside communities), must meet several requirements:

      They have a cover on the front mouth of the mailbox that protects its interior , a visor that isolates the body of the mailbox from the outside.

      They can be placed inside as well as outside of homes , protected with an envelope around them or built into the wall.

      This class of mailboxes are made of corrosion - resistant materials : aluminum , stainless steel , galvanized steel or electro - galvanized sheet steel . In any case, it is always recommended to install mailboxes in covered places or sheltered from the rain; If this is not possible, the best option when installing a mailbox outside is to choose aluminum as it is the material with the highest anti-corrosion resistance.

      Mailboxes that have a resistance to water penetration : they must be prepared for installation in coastal, industrial or high humidity areas . The European Standard UNE EN 13724 says that outdoor mailboxes must pass a rain test in which, for 10 minutes, the mailboxes are exposed to a flow of water of 16 liters and the volume of water penetrated must not exceed 1 cubic cm .

      They are anti- vandal mailboxes : They provide security against theft, including a security ramp at the mouth of the anti-theft mailbox , which makes it difficult for the hand to enter through the mouth. Sloped up for horizontal mailboxes and down for vertical mailboxes.

      Fixed to the wall – Mailboxes with a surround around 5 pieces to make the grouping completely watertight, and hung from the wall on which they are installed.

      With supports to the ground – Mailboxes that also have the envelope around 5 pieces and the grouping of mailboxes is installed with some supports screwed or buried in the ground.
