Knox Box

Knox Box for Homes

As more individuals within the senior community choose to live at home rather then move to retirement communities, gaining access during a medical emergency can be an issue for first responders, particularly if an individual has medical or mobility difficulties. While help is always just a call away, what happens when you can’t come to the door? With a Residential Knox-Box, first responders are able to let themselves in. Fire departments gain entry into this key box with the Knox Master Key. Your local department uses this high security master key for emergency access.

The Residential Knox-Box is just one part of the department’s Knox Rapid Entry System. Knox-Box key boxes already protect business, schools and commercial properties against forced entry damage and delayed emergency response. Key boxes, vaults, cabinets, key switches and padlocks provide complete and secure key control for your local fire department.
