Thwart thieves with this anti-fishing letter plate

While there isn’t a chipset or ounce of RAM in sight with this last product pick, Trojan’s TS008 Unicorn letter plate has earned its place among the smart innovations range thanks to its ingenious anti-fishing design that aims to thwart thieves who use the letter flap to break in or steal belongings near the entrance. Unique features like the concealed hinge and external fixings help to resist attack, while a positive stop feature ensures the inner flap only opens wide enough to let mail through but seriously hampers opportunistic hands, rods or hooks.

This high-spec letter plate meets the requirements of TS008 and is PAS 24: 2016 compliant, offering fabricators, installers and home-owners top-level security, guaranteed! It also comes with a 25-year anti-corrosion guarantee and 10-year mechanical guarantee, promising many years’ trouble-free service.
