Specifying IdealGuardTM


The letter plate is often the reason why entrance doors/doorsets for flats and apartments are not compliant with a number of the mandatory requirements, such as Building Regulation 2010 Approved Document B for fire safety, Approved Document L for thermal insulation or Approved Document Q for security. If this is the case, such doorsets are likely to achieve the compliance or exceed the requirements after IdealGuard™ secure by design multifunctional eco letter box product is fitted.

All IdealGuard™ products are anti-arson, fireproof, anti-burglary, anti-mail theft, anti-vandalism, floodproof, anti-terrorist, can save house heat and cut CO2 emissins into the atmosphere

Anti-arson means that the product is designed to prevent arson attempts through the letter box or mailbox. Uniquely, in IdealGuard™ letter box and mailbox products this is achieved by filtering out most hazards at the letter plate point without impeding the mail deliveries. Products are also designed to prevent the spread of smoke and fire, that was somehow started inside the product, out into the property. This is achieved with the products' tightly sealed strong steel body.

Fireproof means that IdealGuard™ letter box product will protect against a fire and smoke that may originate on either side of the door: in the flat or in the common areas. Usually this is essential for the so called 'compartmentation of flats' with entrance doors facing the common areas.

Anti-burglary means that IdealGuard™ letter box products do not allow access to door locks through the letter plate, 'fishing' of keys and theft of items.

Anti-mail theft means that IdealGuard™ letter box and mailbox products resist to the attempts to steal mail items through the letter plate.

Anti-theft means that IdealGuard™ letter box products do not allow theft of items, such as keys, by 'fishing' them out through the letter plate.

Floodproof means that IdealGuard™ letter box products do not allow water penetration through the letter plate into the property.

Anti-vandalism and Anti-terrorist means that IdealGuard™ letter box and mailbox products offer protection against all other known categories of crime and vandalism through the letter plate.

IdealGuard™ letter box products will fully insulate the letter plate even when the letter plate flap is open. This allows saving house energy and cutting CO2 emissions from the property.


Modular anti-theft security

In IdealGuard™ models security against mail theft through the letter plate is available on a modular principle depending on the security attachments used. Three levels of security against mail theft are available:

  • in IdealGuard™/U models fitted as a letter box: enhanced as in IdealGuard™/UE, superior as in IdealGuard™/US and ultimate as in IdealGuard™/UU;
  • in IdealGuard™/L (and /S) letter box models: enhanced as in IdealGuard™/LE (and /SE), superior as in IdealGuard™/LS (and /SS) and ultimate as in IdealGuard™/LU (and /SU);
  • in IdealGuard™/U models fitted as a mailbox and IdealGuard™/M mailbox models two security levels are available: enhanced as in IdealGuard™/ME and superior as in IdealGuard™/MS.

Mail theft by using fingers is not possible with all levels of security. With superior level of security, the mail theft would be difficult even by using implements. With ultimate level of security, the mail theft is not considered as possible.
