The Framemaster anti-vandal 12 inch letterplate is one of the only letterboxes on the market to be awarded 'Secured by Design' approval by the Association of Police Officers. Each letterplate comes with both an external and internal flap to protect your customer's homes, and is available in 2 different depths (20-40mm for uPVC doors, and 40-80mm for composite and wooden doors).

The cavity hole dimension to drill into a door to fit the Framemaster 12 inch letterplate is 250mm x 39.75mm. In a Secured by Design test, any letterplate where the height of the letterbox cavity is over 40mm will automatically fail, as it is conceived that any height over 40mm is big enough for someone to put their hand through the letterbox and manipulate the cylinder on the other side. Many letterplates in the industry fail the Secured by Design test for this reason.

The Framemaster 12 inch letterplate has many features that cannot be found on standard letterboxes. This includes the trademarked anti-vandal facility. Each year house fires are started by vandals putting fireworks through letterboxes. Each Framemaster anti-vandal letterplate has the brushes outward facing (a feature no other letterplate in the industry has). This gives three great benefits:

1. Having brushes on the front of the door acts as a visual deterrent to vandals. As the internal cavity is not easily accessible, it makes it a lot harder to put lit fireworks etc. into the cavity.

2. It is easier for postmen to navigate letters through the brushes, so there will be no more crinkled letters!

3. The brushes stop draughts at the point of entry, making the letterplate draught-proof.

Another great feature of the Framemaster 12 inch letterplate is that the flap can open to 180 degrees, meaning that it should not snap - making letterplate flaps snapping a thing of the past. Many letterplates in the industry can only open to 90 degrees and when too much force is applied when lifting the flap up it causes them to snap off. The ultra-flexible springs on the Framemaster means it can withstand thousands of openings without breaking. It also has an internal water seal which prevents water getting into the door or panel, which stopes letters getting wet as they are posted through and also helps to prevent the flaps from pitting or rusting.
