1250 Series Vertical Style Mail Boxes

These boxes can be fully recessed mounted in a 6.75" deep wall or can be semi-recessed with the SR120 series collar in a 3.75" deep wall. You can even fully surface mount these boxes with the SM125 series collar. All 1250 series boxes are available with built-in pushbuttons, to allow for apartment bell or chime signals. Simply add the prefix 'P' in front of the model number, to order the boxes with the push-button option.
