A fire brigade drop key is a crucial tool that is used to open security and communal doors where fire brigade access is required either in an emergency or during normal operations. Most Fire Brigade FB Drop key variations can be used to provide access to multi story blocks of apartments or flats where a drop key box has been installed to provide an over ride facility in the case of an emergency or when access is required into the block.
As well as being used by the fire brigade this key is also widely used by council workers, maintenance contractors, locksmiths, other emergency services and postal workers, where once they have used this key to gain access, they can then perform their duties in the block.
