A Knox Box is a specialized key box that allows firefighters to gain entry into a building in the event of an emergency. The Knox Box helps reduce potential damage by forcible means of access and greatly increases efficiency in resolving emergency conditions.

Commercial buildings that are equipped with a fire sprinkler system or fire alarm system are required to have a key box installed. For more information visit the Knox Box website.
