"It is further proof of our commitment to provide secure, innovative and quality solutions to our clients"

DAD UK, part of the Decayeux Group, has renewed their membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative, with a new version of their already popular mailbox. 

DAD has been designing and manufacturing steel security products since 1872 and was the first mail- and post-box manufacturer in Europe. Now with over 1.7 million units produced every year, DAD is the leading European manufacturer for letterboxes. DAD also designs post rooms and complex solutions for secure mail delivery and retrieval. They also recently launched a range of electronic parcel lockers, and new products are due in 2022 to create a digital lobby, fully managed through their cloud based back office.

The majority of DAD mailboxes comply to BS EN13724 and are therefore suitable to retrieve letters as described by Royal Mail standards. They also boast the UK's first Secured by Design post-box in their portfolio, the DAD009, and now the new DAD009 Small, a new version designed for residential developments.

DAD UK offers an installation service everywhere in the UK by CSCS accredited installers and export their solutions worldwide.

Emmanuel Charbonnel, DAD UK, said: “We were the first mailbox manufacturer to join Secured by Design nearly a decade ago, and we are delighted to see our renewal approved. It is further proof of our commitment to provide secure, innovative and quality solutions to our clients.”

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: “I couldn’t be happier to have DAD (UK) Limited, part of the Decayeux Group, renew their SBD Membership. They have been with us for over 9 years and their product, the DAD009 1.5MM Steel Letterboxes-Mailboxes, was the first to achieve the certification to DHFTS 009 standards. I look forward to working with them for another three years.”
