Getting reliable mail service depends on several factors. Mail boxes must be secure in order to prevent mail theft and vandalism. Time is another factor. Mail couriers need to be able to keep pace with their schedule and distribute the mail to the necessary parties on time.
In areas where there is a large concentration of people, secure locking community mailboxes are the best way to accommodate both needs. Individual mail boxes will not work in such an environment because there simply is not enough time for the carrier to accurately disseminate the mail to all the necessary parties.
There are two basic types of secure locking community mailboxes. One is designed specifically for commercial space, and the other is designed for residential use. Letís take a look at the specifics of both types to see how they add value to the communities they service. Groupings of individual units range from 6, 10, 14, 18, 20, and 30 boxes per wall configuration.
Units made for commercial space are configured to save as much wall space as possible. In ideal situations, they are rear loading and are operated by the carrier from a room behind the wall. In buildings where there is no such room, we have surface mounted front loading units that can be substituted for the standard rear loading models.
One type of residential secure locking community mailbox configuration is the type used in apartment communities. This design is intended to mount in the wall and offer each resident a personal mail box that is highly secure and easy to reach. Parcels can be placed in a separate parcel box that keeps them secure until residents pick them up.
Mail boxes used in apartment buildings are either horizontal or vertical in nature. Smaller complexes typically prefer the vertical units because they offer more space for larger envelops and magazines. Vertical units are also front loading, and mail carriers particularly like this feature because it saves them time when they have a busy day in front of them.
Larger complexes typically require horizontal units, however, because of wall space constraints. Both rear loading and front loading horizontal units can be purchased from XPB Locker Supply in order to accommodate any type of building floor plan.
There are also secure locking community mailboxes that are made specifically for housing communities. Most of these communities are located far away from major cities and are inhabited by people who have paid a lot of money to get away from the rat race. They pay even more money on gas each day to commute long distances to and from work. These people like their seclusion and safety, and they expect their mail to be reliably delivered on time in spite of the great distances they live from urban areas.
Secure locking community mailboxes that are arranged in clusters on pedestals are the best way to accommodate this expectation. They eliminate the need for each resident to have a mail box on a pole in front of their home.
This saves the mail carrier time because he or she does not have to drive along a long route that often measures over 20 miles total to deliver mail to each and every household. Pedestal mailboxes are weather and vandal resistant and also offer the residents who live in secluded and gated communities a central place to stop on their way home from work to pick up their mail before driving on to their homes.
