What are commercial mailboxes?
Commercial mailboxes are central delivery systems where a US Postal worker can deliver mail to multiple tenants at one location. Commercial mailboxes are used in office buildings, apartments, dorms, colleges, and other industrial and multi-tenant facilities. properties. Commercial mailboxes must meet USPS standards, unless being used for private mail delivery.
What is the Standard 4C Regulation?
In October of 2006 the Standard−4C Regulation went into effect. The regulation stipulates that any post mounted or wall mount commercial mailboxes that are installed as part of a major renovation or new construction, must meet the Standard 4C requirements for security and accessibility. These include both indoor and outdoor cluster mailbox installations.
This regulation applies to any 4C commercial mailbox, cluster box unit or CBU, or centralized mail delivery system.
Front Loading Commercial 4C Mailboxes
USPS approved front loading 4C mailboxes are a convenient and secure method for mail delivery. These commercial mailbox units can be wall-mounted, recessed into a wall, or mounted on an outdoor pedestal or shelter. Consider Standard-4C compliant front-loading commercial mailboxes during your renovation project or as the most secure option for private mail delivery.
Rear Loading Mailboxes
Commercial mailboxes with rear loading capabilities offer additional security for mail delivery. This is especially true for private mail distribution since access to all mailbox compartments at once is only available from a separate secure room. Florence rear-loading mailboxes also feature heavy gauge aluminum and steel construction, and secure tenant mailbox locks to further deter mail theft and identify theft.
