Letter Plate

A Letter Plate, also known as a mail slot or letter box, is a device installed in a door or wall to allow for the delivery of mail or other small items. The function of a mail slot is to provide a secure and convenient way for mail to be delivered without the need for the person receiving the mail to open the door. A Letter Plate can also improve the aesthetics of your house if it matches its overall style and design. It is also available in a variety of designs, colours, and materials, such as brass, bronze, stainless steel, and more. You can choose the one that best complements the overall look of your house and adds to its curb appeal. At MB DIY, we offer the most stylish and robust Letter Plate in a variety of colours such as Brass, Black, Chrome, Silver, and more!


When installing a letter box, it is important to consider both the security risk and the convenience of the postman. The placement of the letter plate should not be too close to the middle of the door, as this could enable easy access to the lock. Additionally, some letter plates come with internal tidies or flaps that can be used to keep the inside of your home neat and tidy. These letter plates are suitable for timber, composite, and PVCu doors with thicknesses ranging from 20 mm to 80 mm and mid-rail and panel options.

Letter Plates in a Variety of Colours:

Letter plates in a variety of colours can add a touch of personalization and design to your front door. By choosing a colour that complements or contrasts with your front door, you can create a cohesive and visually appealing look. Overall, a letter box can be a simple and effective way to improve the design of your front door and enhance the overall appeal of your home.

Brass Letter Plate

A brass letter plate on a front door can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the entrance of a home. The warm, golden colour of brass can complement a variety of door finishes and add a touch of shine to the entrance. It can also give the door a more traditional or classic look. Additionally, a brass letter plate can be polished to a high shine, which can make the entrance of a home look more polished and well-maintained. Overall, a brass letter plate can be a stylish and functional addition to any front door.

Additionally, brass letter plates can also provide an extra level of protection for the home by allowing mail to be delivered directly into the house rather than leaving it exposed in the open. This can help prevent theft or damage and can also be helpful in keeping the front entrance of the house free of clutter. Overall, brass letter plates can be a practical and attractive addition to any home.

Black Letter Plate

A black letter plate on a front door will not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of a home but also increase its safety. One of the key benefits of a black letter plate is that it can help conceal any damage or wear on the door itself. This can make it more difficult for potential burglars to identify weaknesses that they could exploit to gain entry to the home.

Another advantage of a black letter plate is that it can be less noticeable than a shiny brass one. This can help it blend in with the door and make it less of a target for burglars looking for an easy point of entry. It can also provide a nice contrast against a lighter coloured door and complement other black accents on the exterior of the house. Finally, black is a timeless colour that will not easily go out of style. It can also be used to match the colour of the house.

Chrome Letter Plate

A Chrome Letter Plate is a simple yet effective way to increase the security of a home. These plates are typically installed on the front door, allowing for mail and small packages to be delivered. This can help prevent break-ins, as burglars often use the guise of delivering mail or packages to gain access to a home.

Additionally, installing a chrome letter plate is a relatively simple DIY project that can be completed with basic tools. It is important to make sure that the plate is securely attached to the door and that the flap opens and closes easily.

Silver Letter Plate

A Silver letter plate is an ideal investment in the security and curb appeal of any home. Not only will it complement a variety of architectural styles and colour schemes, but it will also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to a home’s exterior.

Additionally, designers and DIY experts can use a silver letter plate to enhance a home’s exterior by incorporating silver siding. This material can give the home a modern and sleek appearance, as well as reflect light, which can make the home appear larger and more inviting. Furthermore, incorporating silver elements such as gravel, rocks, or mulch into the landscaping can add contrast and interest, further increasing the overall aesthetic appeal of the home.

The Importance of a Letter Plate for Your Front Door

A letter plate is a convenient and practical addition to any home or building. It allows for mail and packages to be delivered directly to the door, eliminating the need for the recipient to go to a post office or other locations.

Not only does this provide convenience, but it also increases security as the mail is delivered directly to the door to be retrieved by the recipient. Additionally, letter plates can be designed to match the style and can add a decorative touch to the entrance of a home. Furthermore, a properly sealed letter plate can help keep draughts out, so it’s best to have it perfectly fitted.
