With one key, the Knox Rapid Access System removes barriers to entry when first responders respond to an emergency call.

Responders can then gain rapid access into secure perimeters, gates, buildings, campuses, residential and commercial properties. 

What is the Purpose of a Knox Box?

A Knox Box is a small, wall-mounted safe that holds building keys for fire departments, emergency medical services, and sometimes police to retrieve in emergency situations Local fire departments can hold master keys to all boxes in their response area so that they can quickly enter a building without having to force the entry.
