1450 Series Horizontal Style Private Distribution Mail Boxes
The Alpha Communications® 1450 series front-loading horizontal style mail boxes are designed for use in larger installations NOT SERVICED BY THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE, such as dormitories, military installations, mail receiving centers, colleges, taxicab dispatch centers, ballet studios, etc. They are constructed of the same heavy-gauge aluminum as the 1400 and 1500 series. They meet all USPS regulations except for those related to compartment size, so they cannot be used in locations requiring USPS approved mail boxes or serviced by the Postal Service. The 1450 series features a (single height/single width) door that is 3.0"H x 6.375"W and is designed to most effectively use limited wall space. The 1450 series is available in groups of 9, 10, 11 or 12 compartments high and 3, 4, or 5 compartments wide. 

All compartment doors come equipped with 5-pin cylinder locks with 2 keys per lock. 1,000 key combinations are provided to avoid possible duplication, and to maintain security. 

These boxes are designed to be fully recessed into an 18" deep wall., and have a 'master' door (with private master lock) that swings open to allow insertion of mail from the front of the unit, by the facility, and retrieval through the front by the tenant/resident. Choose from standard finishes of Natural Anodized Aluminum or Gold Anodized Aluminum. Duranodic (Bronze) finish is available at extra cost, all on a special-order basis.
