Following your purchase of a Knox-Box from the factory, you will mount it securely on the exterior of your building; attractive recessed-mount models are available. All necessary access keys will be locked inside by a representative of the fire department; only the fire department's master key can open the box.

  • Electronic entry cards
  • Floor plans
  • Keys
