Mila’s new Kitemarked SupaSecure and ProSecure letterplates protects against thieves using the letterplate to ‘fish’ for keys and valuables.

As a result, the response from the market has been great, with both high and low volume customers making the switch to the SupaSecure – with the stainless steel version proving especially popular.

One fabricator in particular has given the product its endorsement. Nova Group is now fitting the SupaSecure as standard on all its Secured by Design accredited residential doors.


 “What’s clear from the design of the letterplate is that it’s got the fabricator firmly in mind.”

Managing Director, Nova Group


Mix and match

“Just like the Mila ProSecure door hinge which has been on our doors for a long time,” adds Nova’s Felstein, “it’s quick and easy to fit. It’s assembled and fitted just like a traditional letter plate in just a couple of minutes with no special screws or routing. The fact that the two parts of the letterplate are packaged separately means we can mix and match finishes on dual colour doors if that’s what customers want.



Felstein continues: “The product obviously meets the Door and Hardware Federation’s TS008: 2015 security standard, and the updated PAS24:2016 required for SBD accreditation, which is a big USP for our trade customers but it doesn’t have any of the bulky cowls or cumbersome add-ons that we’ve seen in SBD letterplates from other hardware companies.

“It’s particularly slim, protruding just 45mm on the inside of the door and comes in a good range of polished and brushed stainless steel finishes, all with the reassurance of a 25-year mechanical and surface finish warranty from Mila.”

The Mila TS008 letterplate is a patent-pending design featuring anti-fishing fins which open with a smooth concertina action to allow mail to be posted through. Crucially though, the fins restrict the internal flap opening to 80° and this, in combination with an angled postal ramp which deflects items upwards, is what makes fishing almost impossible.
