Knox Box

WHAT IS A KNOX BOX?

The KNOX BOX Rapid Entry System was specifically developed for fire departments. With one master key, the fire department can gain access to commercial and residential property without the need to force entry through a door or window (which causes additional damage).

 Knox Box
More than 9,000 departments nationwide use Knox key boxes, vaults, Haz-Mat cabinets, key switches, locking FDC caps, and padlocks.
Each KNOX-BOX purchased by the property owner is keyed to a single master key controlled by your local fire department. With the Knox System, there is no cost to the fire department, no waiting for a property owner to unlock the door in the middle of the night, and no forcing the door open to gain entry. 
The Knox Rapid Entry System reduces response time, property damage and the liability for lost keys.

The Knox Company requires pre-payment either by check or credit card.
