Knox 2016 Product Catalog
Almost 40 years ago, Knox Company took on the challenge of developing a complete rapid entry system specifically designed for firefighters. In 1975, the first Knox-Box® was introduced to the fire service and a unique concept in fire response was born. Knox-Box soon became the fire industry’s high security lock box of choice. In 1981, a section of the Uniform Fire Code mandating the use of rapid entry lock boxes was adopted and remains in use today.

Problem Opening a Knox-Box?
Have you ever arrived on scene and find it difficult to open the Knox-Box? Overtime grit can build up in a lock core, particularly if the lock core isn’t used often. This built up grit can make it difficult to open the box. Knox utilizes high quality, precision locks that require a minimal amount of maintenance to insure continuous reliability. However, annual inspection and maintenance of the lock is recommended. Also, this is a convenient time to check the condition of the box and door gasket as well as verify that the key contained in the box is still current. A few minutes of your time now can help to ensure the Knox products in your jurisdiction work as designed when needed most.
