Prestige Products renew membership with Secured by Design

Prestige Products, suppliers and installers of MailGUARD and HomeGUARD letterbox protectors, have renewed their membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative.

East Sussex-based Prestige Products supplies letterbox security products for the prevention of arson and anti-social behaviour-related attacks against premises or life, as well as providing an additional level of front door security.


MailGUARD, which is targeted at housing providers and the emergency services, and HomeGUARD, which is aimed at the private residential marketplace via the locksmith industry, both have the same features and protect homes in the same way. The protectors include a lockable steel security plate to stop burglars fishing through the letterbox to reach house or car keys, unlock front doors or steal post, and have a flame retardant, self-extinguishing and leak-proof fabric bag to contain small fires caused by flammable liquids or fireworks being put through the letterbox.

There is also a ‘Plus’ version of both ranges, which utilises the same self-extinguishing fabric as the standard product but with the addition of a heat detection tube, which releases an extinguishant to douse fires. This is intended for homes at high risk.

All products are encased in a high-quality, slimline white steel frame, with a bag featuring a double zip-puller which can be locked. Unlike traditional metal box type solutions, MailGUARD and HomeGUARD allow all types of mail to be accepted – preventing large items of post from being bent, damaged, or left outside, including bulky items such as newspapers and magazines. They are easily fitted to almost any door in a few minutes.

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: “The MailGUARD solution from Prestige Products is a lifesaver which provides peace of mind for residents at risk from dangerous items being posted through the letterbox. The product is used in many circumstances and by differing agencies up and down the country to help reduce the impact from hate crime, domestic abuse, antisocial behaviour, and other criminal activity. Prestige Products have been SBD members since 2015 and I look forward to continuing to work with MD Steve Burge.”
