The Barton Mailbox has a tasteful modern shape with the top and sides formed from a single piece of 1/8” thick steel plate on our 165-ton press break. We build these to stand the test of time in our shop in Austin, Texas. Each one is handcrafted to our exacting standards—the Barton is about as sturdy as they come. It has a simple front hinged closure with a magnetic catch. It is 12” wide, 18” deep and 8 ½” tall. Please scroll through the pictures to see more angles.
We build and deliver this mailbox in clean raw hot rolled steel. Much like the grain in wood, this dark steel finish comes with some variety of heat marks from the raw steel cooling in the steel mill. Most people let this mailbox develop a handsome rust patina over time. The pictures show it at the tail end of this process as well as the raw steel look as we deliver it. Just like any other outdoor product, these finishes will require maintenance over time.
CUSTOM FACEPLATE: We offer this mailbox with a customizable powder coated faceplate. If you want the custom plate, just select that option in the drop-down menu and fill in your custom address numbers.
LOCKING: We offer our Barton Mailbox with an optional lock. The locking option adds a door behind the main front door with a slot at the top, and we'll provide you with two keys.
