What are the improved features on the Standard 4C revision?
Effective October 2006, the United States Postal Service issued amendments to the STD-4C mailbox regulations, which is applicable to all residential or commercial wall mount mailboxes used for centralized mail delivery. These new STD-4C mailboxes are replacing the STD-4B+ mailboxes. STD-4C mailboxes must now be installed in all new installation and major renovation projects. The new requirements provide a new form factor with increased the minimum size requirement (12″W x 15″D x 3″H). The vertical form factor design (5′′w × 6′′d × 15′′h) is no longer available. The new STD-4C mailboxes have a 1:10 parcel locker to tenant compartment ratio. There are also new strengthened security requirements throughout the entire mailbox receptacle. STD-4C mailboxes require an improved lock design and require mandatory security testing performed by the USPS. The new Standard 4C revisions are also compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
What are the improved features on the Standard 4B+ revision?
Most new Standard 4B+ mailboxes include master door gates with hardened Arrow lock brackets. In March of 2005, the United States Postal Service revised the standards for the STD-4B+ mailboxes. Now, all horizontal commercial mailboxes and all wall mount vertical mailboxes must include the added security of an Arrow lock compartment.
What is the difference between Florence mailboxes for USPS Access and for Private Access?
Florence mailboxes come ready for USPS access. All that is needed is for your local postmaster to come and install the master lock(s) on your new Florence mailbox. Only USPS has access to install these master lock(s).
If you wish to use your Florence mailbox for private access you will need to order a private master conversion lock (CK25750) for the master door and parcel locker. These conversion locks are available through The MailboxWorks.
USPS Requirements and Regulations
What constitutes a “major renovation” and require a USPS 4C mailbox?
A major renovation is classified as any renovation that modifies the original wall where the wall-mounted mailbox was installed. If the wall opening is modified so that the mailbox can not be reinstalled in a one-for-one manner, the renovation is considered major and a new USPS STD-4C mailbox must be installed in order to meet current USPS standards.
Who do I speak to about which USPS mailbox to install?
If you have questions regarding the proper “USPS Approved” mailbox for your renovation or project, contact your local Postmaster or Postal Delivery Planning Official. They can provide input on requirements prior to purchasing any new wall-mounted mailbox system.
How can I tell what mailboxes meet USPS requirements?
Each USPS approved Florence Manufacturing mailbox will have a USPS Approved Logo. You can also check with your local postmaster to ensure the mailbox you have selected will meet USPS requirements for its application.
How does a mailbox qualify to be USPS Approved?
Mailbox manufacturers must submit their mailbox design to USPS and undergo significant testing before becoming USPS approved for the market.
How did the USPS decide on new mailbox regulations?
The USPS conducted a number of studies on size and volume of mail delivered by the to Americans, as well as other factors that affect the USPS efficiency and delivery performance. The USPS also looked at mailbox vandalism trends along with forecasting the future of mail delivery. Following this research, the Apartment Consensus Committee was formed and met for a year to discuss the findings. This committee consisted of individuals from USPS plus various invested parties including Florence Manufacturing and other commercial mailbox manufacturers, plus commercial property owners and management and mailbox resellers. Based on research, discussions, and findings, the Apartment Consensus Committee created the new STD-4C regulation, which is now mandatory and went into effect in October 2006.
Should I expect mailbox standards and regulations to change again soon?
Prior to the 2006 regulation changes we were using mailbox standards from 1975. The USPS is careful to set standards that will be effective for several decades as implementing these standards is a lot work.
