CBU Mailbox Features
Florence Cluster Box Units (CBUs) mailboxes are the most durable, high-quality USPS-approved outdoor CBUs on the market. They continually meet or go above USPS standards. The Florence F-series cluster box units have been licensed by the USPS as the “design standard” that other commercial mailbox makers must follow.
To protect your mail as well as fight identity theft, Florence Manufacturing designed all multi-tenant mailbox systems with the following high-security standards:
- Tamper-proof – anti-pry construction with no removable parts on the outside of the CBU mailbox
- Weatherproof – front drip edge and sloping roofline to protect against rain and inclement weather
- Robotically welded – for added precision and strength
- Industrial grade aluminum construction – made from tough aircraft-grade aluminum
- Heavy-duty cam locks – that are tamper-proof and latch through the mailbox frame
- Tough anti-fish comb – helps prevent mail fishing
- The sloping hood on the outgoing mail slot – helps to prevent mail theft
Five Year Product Warranty
Florence Manufacturing offers a 5-year Product Warranty on all Florence CBUs. The warranty covers any issues with work or materials. For more details, please see our CBU Product Warranty PDF file.
CBU Mailboxes are USPS Approved
As of 2005, USPS approved Florence CBUs have become the industry standard for outdoor centralized mail delivery. Although CBUs offer better security, we recommend checking with your local postmaster to confirm the CBU mailbox location before it is installed.
Once it is installed, the USPS will also need to be contacted to have them put in the master lock for the main access door. Only the USPS can install master locks, and only they will have access to the master lock keys. Florence Manufacturing is the only authorized mailbox supplier to the United States Postal Service.
Heavy Duty Cam Locks
Each tenant mailbox on the Florence CBU mailbox unit has a heavy-duty, 5-pin stainless steel cam lock plus three tenant mailbox keys. The cam lock also has a rain shield to protect it from rain and other bad weather. Extra tenant mailbox keys and replacement locks can be ordered online on our replacement parts page.
Mailboxes Large Enough for Magazines & Small Packages
The wider compartment size on each tenant mailbox is now a USPS standard. Compartments were made to be wide enough to let larger envelopes, magazines, and small packages lie flat without being folded.
Parcel Lockers Included
USPS regulations now require all mailbox clusters with ten or more tenant doors to have at least one parcel locker. See our CBU FAQs for more information on how these parcel lockers work.
Other Florence CBU Mailbox Features
Finished in a durable powder coat, all Florence CBUs are made with reinforced steel. They also have overlapping, interlocking seams and aircraft-grade aluminum builds to be sure your mail stays safe and protected from would-be mail thieves. For private mail distribution or any application that does not use US Postal Service, our CBUs can be ordered with a private master lock and outgoing mail slot.
Other unique CBU mailbox features include:
- Sloped mailbox top for water drainage
- Tight seam clearances to prevent prying
- Adhesive (or engraved) door numbering
- Outgoing mail slot with weather protection hood
- Parcel lockers with key trapping lock
- Outgoing mail collection compartment (prepped for USPS Arrow Lock)
- Heavy-duty tenant cam locks with three keys per mailbox
- Matching aluminum mailbox pedestal (included)
- Aluminum comb to prevent mail fishing in the outgoing mail collection compartment
- Heavy-duty cam latched through the frame for added security
Ask us about USPS approved, vandal-proof, secure CBUs with reinforced pedestal fasteners. These are ideal for use as government or military centralized mail distribution systems.
