s the name suggests, wall mounted locks are locks which are mounted on walls. Knox-box and fireman’s box style locks are the most popular types of wall-mounted locks. The locks are common in large commercial establishments where they offer emergency access to a building’s keys. The locks are however used in many other applications apart from storing keys. For instance, the locks can act as item deposits or small safes.
The installation process of wall mounted locks is usually done when a building is being constructed. It is, however, important to note that some types of wall-mounted locks can still be installed easily into existing buildings. The locks can be fixed on a number of wall surfaces including wooden and stone/concert walls. Most walls mounted locks are usually mounted with alarm sensors or covers for easy networking into a building’s security system.
