Letterbox / Letterplate – 315mm x 50mm

Aluminium letterbox / letterplate used on uPVC, aluminium and timber doors. Used by countless door manufacturers including Munster Joinery. This is probably the most common letterbox used in Ireland. See pictures for full dimensions.

The body and flaps of the letterbox are made from aluminium. The plastic sleeve is made from ABS plastic. The sleeves are designed to sit into each other. The plastic sleeve is telescopic, to suit doors with a thickness between 36mm – 70mm. The sleeve can also be cut to smaller size with hacksaw if necessary. Spring loaded flaps keep both sides closed tightly. As both sides of the letterbox look identical, it is worth noting that the foam draught seal is fitted on external side of the door.

Common Letterbox Problems

The most common problem with letterboxes is the springs breaking. Usually caused by wear and tear, but also caused by rough treatment from post and junk mail delivery. The springs are what keep the flaps closed tight against the seal. If the springs are broken in your letterbox, the flap will annoyingly rattle in the wind. Eventually the flap will break off completely. A perfect replacement letterbox and really easy to install.
