Feel free to wave as you drive by The Stratford on your way out the door every morning. This sturdy but elegant lifeguard will keep your packages inside and hidden from your open porch and the possible stray dog roaming the neighborhood. The Stratford has 2 compartments; the upper mailbox is for basic letters, envelopes, magazines and the lower is for packages. Keys come for the lock on the back of the box for you to access your deliveries and an additional matching key set for the mailbox compartment on the front.
We build and deliver this mailbox in clean raw dark gray hot rolled steel. Much like the grain in wood, this dark steel finish comes with a variety of heat marks from the raw steel cooling in the steel mill. Most people let this mailbox develop a handsome RUST patina over time. The final photo shows it at the tail end of this process when it has cured to orange rust.
LOCKING: The Stratford has a locking mailbox front door behind the main front door with a slot at the top for depositing mail. The back compartment has a lock as well with matching keys for both.
OPTIONS: Available in All-Steel and with the wood left off for your own wood installation. Contact us for more details and a custom quote.
FLAG: We now offer two choices of flags when purchasing your mailbox, a steel flag, or a red powder-coated flag.
INSTALL: The Stratford mailbox will weigh between 245 - 375 lbs depending on your options and it will need to be anchored to concrete or a stone pad. Holes are provided in the bottom plate of the mailbox for anchoring.
