Both are good in construction of certain products, but for long lasting durability and security, welded is the best choice for a mailbox. ALL Fort Knox Mailboxes are personally hand welded with no rivets needed. A welded mailbox, as opposed to rivets, increases the durability and security tremendously. Thieves are often able to pull the riveted sides off other mailboxes and get to your mail with hardly any effort at all. Not so with a Fort Knox Mailbox. You can see in the picture to the right where the 3/16″ back plate has been completely welded. It just doesn’t get any stronger than this! Two words sum it up and those are, durability and security.
