Knox Box - Rapid Entry System

A ®KNOX-BOX key box is a heavy-duty enclosure in which keys to a building are securely stored. They are mounted on or in an exterior wall of the building near the main entrance and can only be unlocked by the fire department.

It is recommended that all commercial buildings have a ®KNOX-BOX key box in order to prevent property damage in the event building access is needed in an emergency situation.

It is also a City of Horseshoe Bay Ordinance, ARTICLE 5.07 KNOX-BOX RAPID ENTRY SYSTEMS, all security gates to residential, business, and/or commercial properties within the city limits and jurisdiction of the city shall install and maintain a functional Knox-Box rapid entry system switch to provide for the immediate and unimpeded access by fire, police, and emergency medical personnel.
