English translation:!!!!Box!!! [emphatic editorial mark]
Explanation:
My impression is that this announcement is to be laid out as a "box" , and that all those exlamation marks reflect either the urgency of that instruction, of the nervousness of the originator. Cou could probably just replicate those exclamation marks as I did above, or use a more conventioal way (font, bold) to get the point across.

Explanation:
does it say Kasten in this context? Kasten is a Box I am not sure if that is what you are looking for... maybe you can give a little more context possibly the sentence where it uses the word "Kasten"?

It would help
