Swansea-based Letterbox Manufacturer Deliver Stylish Design at High-End London Residence


Following a number of recent high profile projects, a specialist letterbox manufacturer can add yet another prestigious London-based assignment to its portfolio, with the design and installation of chic mailboxes at an apartment development in central London.

The Safety Letterbox Company, the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of secure mailboxes, completed a project at Paddington Exchange: a landmark scheme from leading developer, Taylor Wimpey Central London, part of one of the largest residential developers in the UK.

Paddington Exchange is a collection of 123 high specification apartments located in one of central London’s most sought-after and well-connected districts. In line with its sophisticated location, The Safety Letterbox Company ensured the design of its mailbox products for the project complimented the stylish and refined theme of the building and its location.

The project featured multiple banks of wall recessed fire rated mailboxes for increased safety and security, situated in the entrance lobby of the building. The mailboxes were finished using a dark bronze paint with each mailbox displaying engraved numbering on the opening flap, coloured with a contrasting black infill.

The Safety Letterbox Company mounted the bespoke mailboxes on the lobby wall in collaboration with specialist joinery sub-contractors Furniture Group Manufacturing Ltd. The banks of mailboxes were completed with a surround trim, used to mask the join between the mailboxes and the installation wall for a flawless finish to fit the sleek design of the lobby area.

Derek Nash, sales manager at Furniture Group Manufacturing Ltd, commented:

“The overall finished product looks stunning and was completed on time, to the complete satisfaction of our client. It was a pleasure to work with Safety Letterbox on this project. It was a real team effort and we certainly look forward to working with them in the future.”

Alison Orrells, managing director of The Safety Letterbox Company, said:

“Working with another major property developer on such a high-profile project is extremely rewarding for the company and we are thrilled with the final result. This project adds to our portfolio of esteemed developments that we have been involved with, showing our expertise in delivering the desired look, practicality and safety requirements needed in such high-end developments.

“It is paramount that the design of our mailboxes matches with the client’s expectations. We feel we delivered this by paying careful attention to design details to ensure the end result would match the aesthetics of the destination perfectly.”
