THE SAFETY LETTERBOX COMPANY - Sky’s The Limit For Safety Letterbox Company At The Burj Khalifa

At more than 828 metres high, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the world’s tallest building. The Safety Letterbox Company (SLBC) rose to the demanding design challenge of supplying a unique mailbox solution for exclusive apartments within this impressive skyscraper.

South Wales-based SLBC, the UK’s leading manufacturer of secure mailing systems, worked closely with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill architects to produce the bespoke arrangement of 28 banks of 50 mailboxes for three purpose-designed mailrooms.

These mailrooms serve the multi-million pound luxury Armani Residences, personally designed by fashion legend Giorgio Armani. The one and two-bedroom apartments are located on floors nine to 16 of the elegant 160-storey tower, built by Emaar Properties.

Recessed snugly behind oak-panelled facades, each bank of mailboxes has a fully opening lockable front panel to allow for secure A4 size mail delivery by the postal authority. This eliminates any unauthorised third party deliveries, ensuring complete privacy for recipients.

All the lockable individual boxes are clearly marked inside with a detailed postal address. Mail retrieval is via the front flap and individual doors featuring both European and Arabic numerals.

With more than 25 years’ experience and expertise in delivering tailor-made mail solutions for global clients, The Safety Letterbox Company was an obvious choice for this world-class structure. Mailbox security, design and individual requirements were discussed in detail from the outset, with client liaison overseen by the company’s international contracts manager.

SLBC has the flexible manufacturing capability to adapt any standard mailbox from its range of over 120 models to suit any site profile, location and budget to meet exact client requirements in diverse markets across the world.

The prestigious Burj Khalifa project amply demonstrates how SLBC can realise the architects’ vision with a secure, aesthetically-appealing multi-unit mailbox solution for the most discerning end-users.
