Gang Mailboxes: The Mailbox Delivery System of Choice
Originally designed to reduce the United States Postal Service’s delivery costs, gang mailboxes are quickly growing in popularity and becoming the de facto centralized mailbox delivery system of choice. And for good reasons too! Gang mailboxes, also known as Cluster Box Unit (CBU) mailboxes, are an extraordinary mail delivery system. Florence’s line of CBU mailboxes is considered the most durable and highest quality USPS approved outdoor cluster mailbox on the market.
Florence CBU Mailboxes Are Multipurpose
The multiple applications of these gang mailboxes include, but are not limited to:
- Home Owner Associations (HOA)
- Industrial Parks
- Universities & Colleges
- Military Base Housing
- Business Complexes
- Apartment Buildings
- Condominiums and Multi-Family Housing
Weather-proof and Tamper-proof Construction
Florence gang mailboxes are resistant to elemental damage and vandalism. They are built from tough, aircraft-grade aluminum with robotically-welded seams. They also feature 360-degree wrap-around stainless steel hinges and durable powder-coated finishes. The sloped top and hooded outgoing mail slot keep mail well-protected from the weather. And multi-faceted security features keep you safe from mail theft and identity theft.
Florence CBU mailboxes are designed with safety in mind. Their security features include:
- an anti-fishing comb
- a sloped hood on the outgoing mail slot
- heavy-duty stainless steel five-pin cam locks
- key trapping parcel lockers
- no exterior removable parts
- tightly-welded anti-pry seams
Florence has also thought through a safe, step-by-step mail delivery method.
Step 1: Florence gang mailboxes allow the postal carrier to open a master door using one special cluster mailbox key. They can access the entire cluster box unit and easily deliver mail to each individual tenant’s mailbox.
Step 2: Each resident uses their own tenant mailbox key to open the cam lock on their private mailbox.
Step 3: If the postal carrier has a larger item or parcel to deliver, they would place that item into the gang mailbox’s locked parcel locker.
Step 4: The postal carrier places the key to that parcel locker into the recipient’s private mailbox.
Step 5: The tenant uses this parcel locker key to open the designated locker and retrieve their package.
Step 6: Once inserted, the parcel locker key remains securely trapped in the lock and can only be removed by the postal carrier on their next visit.
This delivery system guarantees that tenants safely receive their mail and packages while ensuring parcel locker keys never get misplaced.
How Are Gang Mailboxes Configured?
Gang mailboxes are available in four cluster box configurations:
- 8 door mailboxes
