Examples of use

The Metropolitan Police advise that enclosed properties are more likely to be targeted for vandalism and arson attacks. High walls and fences will shield an intruder from view, giving them more time to act, with unlit areas hiding snoopers at night. Recommendations include keeping walls, fences and hedges to a metre high so your property can be seen from the street and by neighbours, adequate dusk-til-dawn lighting that leaves no hiding places and, of course, fireproof letterboxes.

King Street Bus Station in Mildenhall, Suffolk, uses fireboxes on litter bins housed in its modern architectural design, guarding against accidental or malicious fires caused by burning cigarette butts, arson or vandalism.

squeezed over the external plate or around the internal side of the door, around the letterbox
opening. Open the lid by turning the clips and separating the Velcro tape. There are two holes
at either end of the metal plate, simply screw to the door with the screws supplied.
