Product description

Front of larch wood which is highly resinous and therefore very much suitable for exterior exposure. As the wood is untreated, it can be painted, glazed or oiled easily. Though, in our opinion, this is not necessary. As time goes by the wood silvers and develops its own interesting patina.

Material: brushed stainless steel, untreated larch wood

Measure, weight: 42 x 43,5 x 12,5 cm / drop opening 3,5 x 32,5 cm / 9,0 kg

Concept

keilbach was the first manufacturer worldwide to use glass and translucent materials on mailboxes.
The mailboxes of the “glasnost” series with their fronts made from glass, metal or wood are part of the architecture. Their pure design does not attempt to be more important than architecture itself. The focus lies on the material and this is what defines the character of these mailboxes. Many architects appreciate their clear and reduced design.
The innovative material selection, the careful workmanship and the timeless design make these mailboxes a product with a long life expectancy.
