When a crisis strikes your building or property, there is only one priority: keeping those inside safe from harm. Having proper protocols in place for your tenants inside your building or school campus ahead of time will help, but building owners and managers must also be able to give rapid access to first responders arriving on the scene.

Most property managers know of the KnoxBox® key storage system, which has given rapid access to fire and law enforcement agencies for over 30 years. When a crisis arises, rapid access solutions like the KnoxBox® remove the barriers to entry for first responders and minimize property damage to your building. If you’re not already using a KnoxBox®, Ban-Koe is ready to help. Contact us today to learn more.

If you currently have a KnoxBox® installed, you may be interested in some of the other ways our partnership with the Knox Company and its premier line of Rapid Access Solutions can help you. Read on to learn more.

What is a KnoxBox®?

The most crucial component of any rapid access system begins with a key storage solution like the KnoxBox®. With a KnoxBox® on your property, you’ll be able to:
