Press Room: The Safety Letterbox Company installs SALTO electronic mailboxes at Warwick University

The Safety Letterbox Company installs SALTO electronic mailboxes at Warwick University

Student mail at two halls of residence at The University of Warwick is protected by SALTO electronic mailboxes manufactured by The Safety Letterbox Company.

Electronic mailboxes at Warwick Uni

Claycroft and Sherbourne Halls feature these mailboxes which protect against mail theft and identity fraud, provide increased security and access control to individual mailboxes with full traceable entry.

The Estates Manager at the University decided to integrate the SALTO mailboxes into the campus to handle student mail in a secure and controlled environment. Electronic mailboxes eliminate the need and expense of having to reissue replacement keys to students as they will be able to operate and access their mailbox with their existing student ID card and room key.

The mailboxes are integrated with the SALTO access control system which is already in place across campus. Students are able to operate and access their mailbox with their existing student ID card and room key.

Benefits of using electronic post boxes include:

  • Integration with existing SALTO system on the development
  • One card can access all systems - great for delivery recipients
  • Removal of need for replacement locks and keys
  • A modern technology for ever-changing requirements
  • Real-time access to post box with SALTO access card
  • Full access logs available for administration staff
  • Reduced administration requirements.

The Safety Letterbox Company commented on this project: “By incorporating the SALTO locking option onto our mailboxes the University of Warwick has not only increased the security of their mailing systems but have also reduced the cost and administration time of re-issuing lost keys to students.”

The mailboxes in this project have been finished in a Carmine Red (RAL 3002) and a Window Grey (RAL 7040) polyester powder coated finishes on their respective banks of post boxes. Each mailbox has been fitted with a SALTO electronic lock that is finished in a contrasting black colour. More information about the standard RAL colour finishes is available on the RAL colour chart.

The electronic SALTO locks on this project are extremely straightforward to retrieve delivered mail items from the box. The recipient approaches the product and using a SALTO key card, they place this on top of the lock. Once the lock detects the card via its electronic componentry, it checks as to whether the recipient has been granted access to the mailbox.

If the recipient has been granted access, then the switch on the lock can be turned clockwise, releasing the door and providing access to the delivered contents. If the recipient has not been granted access, then the switch on the lock will not turn clockwise and the mailbox will remain locked.

This type of product is extremely popular. For further information concerning this range please contact the sales department of The Safety letterbox Co on 01639 633525 or email contact@safetyletterbox.com
