Keyguard is a trademark of Hoyles Electronic Developments Traditional “Break Glass” key boxes have been used for many years to provide easy access to a key that may be required in an emergency situation. While these “Break Glass For Key” boxes perform a function, there is certainly danger from shards of glass when used – they simply do not provide a modern solution for emergency access to keys and other key related hardware such as access control cards and fobs.

Hoyles Keyguard products on the other hand are a modern and safe alternative. All products in the range can store keys, access control cards and even proximity fobs. The clear ABS plastic window affords visibility of the box contents and is very safe in use, enabling it to be used in such areas as schools, food preparation areas and swimming pools. There are no shards of glass or sharp edges that could cause injury. The window is easily removed by hand without the need for a hammer and is broken when removed. A new window must therefore be used when replacing the key. The two colour options of red and green make the Keyguard visible and relevant to the situations in which it may be used.

Three different models are available in each colour.

  • The standard version with no alarm or switch.
  • A version with integral battery powered audible alarm. If any attempt is made to remove the plastic window then the alarm is sounded.
  • A version fitted with a single pole changeover contact micro-switch. This version allows for connection to other alarm systems to provide notification that keys have been accessed.
