There are lots of reasons people use emergency key safes or lockable hide a key boxes. They are often used for medical emergencies where the Ambulance use the key making inside to gain entry. Before emergency key safes were available the Ambo’s used to call the Police of Fire Brigade to gain entry. Alas both Police and the Fire Brigade use brute force and the damage can be substantial.
Its pretty straightforward to install an emergency key safe. All that is required is a wooden post or concrete wall. In a perfect world the installation location would be out of the weather and slightly hidden. More and more elderly people choose to stay independent in their own home so an emergency key safe is essential. There are quite a few brands available now however we stick to the more reliable brands such as Supra and Kidde.
Some people use a handyman to install their emergency key safe which I think is dangerous. We unlike handy men have Police clearances and are licensed. The Qld Security providers act ensures any license holder has their fingerprints recorded. Additionally all licence holders are run through the Police Data base. If ANY charges pop up against a licence holder, the licence is suspended.
Emergency key safes range in price from $60 to $110 plus the installation charge. We charge between $70 and $100 to install them depending upon the location required and the type of fixing that is required. Because we install so many we also use the very best anchors rather than the ones the manufacturer supplies. Our favorite anchor is a “baton screw” because they are incredibly strong. So call or email us today to arrange for the installation before its too late.
