Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job This one failed after about 2 years, the spring broke and outside flap fell off. The letter plate was easy to fit and worked well. I like the drought excluder fitted and is certainly big enough for all letters and small parcels.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job but fiddly to fit Essential to upgrade flat entrance doors to FD30 fire rating - ordinary letter plates compromise the door fire rating. You may have to widen the existing door opening to fit it. Also, the through screws are fiddly trying to get them to locate the thread on the outside plate - patience is needed, but eventually got there ! Hopefully I will never need to test if it works in a fire.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair enough It does what is meant to do but I believe it's quite expensive for what it offers. Is not the best quality and I had to make adjustments to fit it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looks smart on uPVC front door Looks great on uPVC front door. built in draught excluder. easy to fit (15 minutes ) security screws make it impossible to remove from outside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Half Hour fire protection This device has allowed us to keep some functionality within our admin department after an H&S audit condemned our standard letter boxes stating that they require blocking up due to fire regulations. Ease of installation: Couldn’t be simpler get your jigsaw or chisel set out to cut dimensions as required. 20 years+ in building services. I would recommend this product and will use this product again, good build quality.

you state that this is compatible with '40 mm or 65 mm doors'. do you mean doors from 40 mm to 65 mm, i.e.including all the sizes inbetween?

Asked by: Anonymous
The instructions state that the central section is telescopic and all sizes in between are included, although they state that the door thickness range is in fact 40 to 80mm. Thanks for using Screwfix Q&A. JT
