The Knox Tamper Alert is installed inside either the Knox Document Cabinet or the Knox Elevator Box and connects to the alarm on your building. If anyone tampers with the box, the alarm will be activated.
Dual locks allow shared agency access so first responders can immediately gain access during emergencies. For example, fire departments, law enforcement, and emergency medical services may share access to properties in their local jurisdictions.
The Knox Document Cabinet is available in light beige gray and the Knox Elevator Box is available in red, aluminum, and dark bronze.
Spec sheets are available on this page under the "Resources" section or can be found here.
