Stainless steel post boxes can weather even the most extreme temperatures, rainfall or sunlight - which is a good job in UK weather.
It is common for direct sunlight to have a negative impact on letter boxes made from weaker materials. Weaker materials will contract, weaken and even crack in strong heat - particularly if they have been made from plastic.
Post boxes made from weaker materials can also be affected by consistent rain and ice, and some materials can actually soak and expand in damp weather conditions. Materials that constantly contract and expand are going to become damaged much faster than other items, such as quality stainless steel post boxes.
Plastic is susceptible to damage from weather elements and general wear and tear; cracked and broken letter boxes were a more typical sight to observe in the last few decades.
In order to guarantee the durability of letter boxes and post boxes, it is necessary to seek those items that have been manufactured using stainless steel, or other high quality graded metal.
