Your customers will benefit from:

  • Back-to-back construction for strength

  • Security tested to PAS24 including an inner security flap to prevent ‘fishing’

  • Weather tested to BS6375-1 including gaskets and brushes to keep the wind and rain out

  • Manufactured to TS008 specifications

  • Telescopic liner to fit different door thicknesses

  • 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel to help prevent corrosion in coastal locations or in acidic timber

Available in Super Satin Stainless Steel, Mirror Polished Stainless Steel or PVD Brass (Brass available start December) 

As one of our customers said

“I searched for a long time trying to find a replacement letter plate that would not only stop the rain, but also the cold wind, and at the same time match the rest of the brushed stainless steel hardware. Luckily I came across your site and the LP400 looked just the job to rectify all the issues I was having, and now fitted, I have total faith that the worst of the weather will be kept outside.”

Provide your customer with peace of mind by fitting the blu LP400 Letter Plate to your doors.
