Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Welsh Manufacturer First to Offer 120 min Fire Rated Parcelboxes to the Market


Based in Neath, South Wales, The Safety Letterbox Company (SLB) has designed and manufactures over 180 models of mailboxes and parcelboxes. Founded in 1986, the family-owned business has built a strong reputation among its loyal customers and has established itself as a market leader and trusted voice in mail and parcel box manufacturing.

The company prides itself on quality, value, functionality, and aesthetics. Their reputation is built on providing the very best service and solution to the market. SLB are delighted to be the first UK manufacturer to offer 2-hour fire rated parcelbox systems to accompany their comprehensive 2 hour mailbox range.

Their intelligent parcelboxes, myRENZbox have been fully tested in extreme conditions at Warrington Fire Research Laboratory; this test includes the products being recessed within a wall, backed into a furnace that reaches temperatures of more than 1030 degrees C. They need to withhold their integrity and therefore not distort, not release any gaps, ignite nor spread a flame.

They are therefore able to be positioned within a fire rated area and a fire escape route if required.

Alison Orrells, CEO and MD of The Safety Letterbox Company says

‘This is another very important result for SLB and the market, providing the maximum fire protection, if required, on any development. Following much investment and product development we have a range of 2 hour fire rated mailboxes and now intelligent parcelboxes to satisfy any site location arrangement, all with absolute reassurance that full testing has been done and our manufacturing is strictly in accordance with such rigorous testing in ISO9001 conditions.  I am incredibly proud of our team who work so skilfully to create ingenuity in the world of mail and parcel delivery.’

The first fire rated mailboxes were developed by SLB in 2002, since then they have developed and expanded the range to ensure the market had the products it needs to be future proofed. The Safety Letterbox Company are incredibly proud to be paving the future as market leaders in mail and parcel box manufacturing and design.
