Kidde Rapid Entry System

The Kidde Rapid Entry System is designed to help fire departments and businesses work together to preserve lives and property. It eliminates the need for fire department officials to maintain and carry cumbersome key rings with hundreds of building keys.

Here’s how the Rapid Entry System works:

  1. The building owner purchases the Lock Box of their choice and mounts it securely near the entrance. Fire department officials lock the building keys in the Lock Box.
  2. To ensure absolute security, Kidde has developed a flexible program for shipping lockboxes directly to building owners. Special security keys are supplied only to authorized fire department officials.
  3. When a fire alarm sounds at night or on the weekend, the fire department has instant access to the building. Access is fast, easy, and safe without the need for the building owner or tenant to drive to the site after hours.

Kidde — a name you can trust

Safe and secure. Keys that open the SupraSafe line of Lock Boxes are provided exclusively by Kidde. Our SupraSafe 2 High-Security units are UL certified antitheft devices. All SupraSafes are steel construction with locking systems designed to withstand attack. Optional tamper switches can be integrated with a building’s alarm system.

The SupraSafe line by Kidde offers a variety of sizes, styles, and features. Building owners can custom-tailor a Rapid Entry System to meet their needs.
