PRESS RELEASE New Aluminum Mailbox

Homeowners frustrated with having to replace their mailboxes too often due to rust or corrosion now have a viable option. Gibraltar Mailboxes is launching a new series of aluminum mailboxes designed to outperform those currently on the market. As its name implies, the Admiral Aluminum mailbox meets the highest of standards when it comes to performance against weather conditions.

The Admiral mailbox is constructed from durable aluminum that will never rust, and features a richly textured powder coated finish for added corrosion resistance. “Ideal for coastal areas and regions where roads are frequently salted.” says Brian Paich, National Sales Manager with Gibraltar Mailboxes. “The Admiral mailbox was intentionally designed with all rustproof hardware and components to outperform harsh weather conditions and provide a long service-life.” During a recent salt spray test, the Admiral Aluminum mailbox lasted ten times longer than a competitor’s standard steel mailbox.

Furthering the Admiral’s efficient weather protection, a patented internal door brace is integrated in its design to keep rain out while maximizing strength.

Available in a choice of textured black or textured white, the Admiral’s standard size and classic appearance make it a great choice for all residences.

Homeowners can expect the new line of aluminum mailboxes to be available in hardware stores nationwide and online in late fall of 2018.
