Options for 4C Horizontal Mailboxes

June 21, 2016

Florence 4C Mailboxes4C horizontal mailboxes can be utilized as apartment mailboxes and are available in a near-endless selection of tenant mailboxes to fit buildings of every size, from small to large. They are also designed by the Florence Corporation with advanced security features providing a sense of well-being to tenants and ultimately positively impacting tenant retention.

Over the years, developers and property managers from across North America have come to trust Florence 4C horizontal mailboxes, available at The Mailboxworks. These are the perfect choice for their multi-tenant buildings and apartments that receive USPS service.

These inherent security features make it difficult for thieves to gain a foothold in multi-tenant buildings and apartments, which also helps to ease the mind of the building’s property managers.

UPDATE: 4C Pedestal Mailboxes have been discontinued as of November 30, 2020. The USPS Cluster Box Unit (CBU) Mailbox is now the standard for all multi-family mail delivery.

Horizontal mailboxes are also offered as either rear loading or front loading 4C mailboxes.

Front Loading Mailboxes

Typically front loading 4C horizontal mailboxes are installed inside of the building (although exterior mountings can be accomplished) and can be:

  • Recessed into the wall
  • Surface-mounted onto a wall
  • Or the entire 4C horizontal mailboxes unit can be installed into a kiosk

Rear Loading Mailboxes

These are far less common as they require a secure mailroom inside the building for the postal carrier to access and load the mail into the rear of the unit for each tenant.

Once a property manager selects the number of 4C tenant mailboxes required and the proper mounting for their particular needs, the following product decisions are primarily aesthetic and fairly easy to make.

4C Mailbox Color Choice and Finish

While the most common color choices for the 4C horizontal mailboxes are sandstone and postal grey, they are also available in six additional designer colors:

Black             Dark Bronze             Antique Bronze

White           Silver Speck             Gold Speck

Typically, building developers and property managers choose colors to complement the current architectural style and color of the building or the other property accessories.

Mailbox Door ID Numbers

For property managers looking to further distinguish the look of their properties through the customization of their 4C horizontal mailboxes, one expert tip is to consider utilizing unique tenant door identification tags displayed on each tenant mailbox door.

Typically, these tenant identification tags are simple silver placards numbered for each mailbox. However, there are three other mailbox ID tags one might consider:

  1. Custom numbering or lettering on the stock silver placards
  2. Professional engraving of each identification number or letter for each tenant mailbox door
  3. Professional engraving with a color infill of either black or white

Paired with the custom 4C mailbox finishes above, beautiful finish combinations such as a black 4C horizontal mailbox unit with white infilled engraved numbers or a silver speck finish with black infilled engraved numbers can quickly provide an upscale look.

Ordering 4C Mailboxes

The most important decision, however, is where you order your 4C horizontal mailboxes from.

Many Internet commercial mailbox retailers require you to choose your own mailbox units without any expert advice, as they simply drop ship the orders directly from the manufacturer.
