VIZBOX ® Enclosures Limited is delighted to have supplied projector enclosures to one of the UK’s most exciting heritage projects; London’s Mail Rail at the Postage Museum.
Mail Rail is an interactive railway ride which shows how London’s post used to be moved quickly around the city, via 22miles of railway. The project was backed by the Heritage Lottery fund. Built in 1927, Mail Rail was the first driverless electric railway in the world, running 70ft beneath London’s streets for almost 100 years.
Most Londoners were unaware that beneath the streets, lay a secret rail network – a fascinating piece of previously untold UK mail service history.
For the first time ever, passengers will be able to ride a proportion of that network on Mail Rail.
The Renovation Project:
D J Willrich Ltd (DJW), an audio visual multimedia integrated system company won tenders to complete the work at the Postal Museum. The company specialises in project consultation, design, media production, supply and installation to some of the world’s most exciting visitor attractions; from Bletchley Park, The Shard, Ski Dubai, to Sharjah Maritime Museum in UAE….and now Mail Rail at the Postal Museum, London.

Director, Josh Miller said of VIZBOX “We have worked with VIZBOX on a number of challenging projects, in most instances we are installing high value projectors into harsh environments . In each instance VIZBOX have engaged fully with the DJW team and discussed all of the potential risks to the hardware and proposed a range of solutions. Having agreed upon the solution VIZBOX have efficiently and professionally worked through the stages of design approval, production and delivery. Our experience working with VIZBOX has been very positive and we will certainly be working with them again, when the next challenging installation arises.”
