What are key storage boxes?

Also known as key safes or key lock boxes, they secure storage devices.  Mounted on an access gate, wall-mounted on the exterior or on a wall near an entrance.

They are designed to allow authorized personnel, such as the fire department, to access the keys or keycards needed to enter a building or campus in an emergency.

They feature a combination or key-operated lock and can be programmed with a unique code or key that only authorized personnel knows. Some units also have a built-in alarm system that sounds when the box is tampered with or opened without permission.

Mounting type for this section  on an access gate or wall-mounted on a building.
