A company that provides high tech, bespoke and secure letterboxes throughout the UK and worldwide for high profile projects such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, has completed a substantial student accommodation project in London.
The Safety Letterbox Company, the UK’s leading manufacturer and installer of secure mailboxes, was tasked with providing a series of post boxes that were visually appealing for the reception area of The SCAPE Student Living complex on Corsham Street in London.
The reception now houses multiple colourful banks of freestanding post boxes that feature ECOM Horizontal mailboxes, which provide a secure mail storage solution. The mailboxes took over a month to design, manufacture and install.
Staff from The Safety Letterbox Company worked very closely with SCAPE project architects to design a bespoke collection for the exciting development, matching the colours of SCAPE Student Living.
Alison Orrells, Managing Director of The Safety Letterbox Company, said: “This project was quite different from any we have done before. Instead of fitting mailboxes into a wall, we were tasked with creating multiple banks of freestanding, brightly coloured post boxes to fit in with branding requirements.
“It was a great project to work on and the results are outstanding.”
Tom Devaney, Managing director of SCAPE, said: “The Safety Letterbox Company produced a high quality and visually interesting back to back arrangement of mailboxes for our reception area at SCAPE – optimising the use of space and providing an stimulating and functional mailbox arrangement.
“Each double-sided bank housed multiple engraved mailboxes in a wide variety of colours, in keeping with the window decals and other internal features.
“The banks were clad by The Safety Letterbox Company to provide a white featureless edge with oversized legs to give a strong impact to the mail area. They certainly met the brief and I would not hesitate to work with them on future projects.”
