ASSA ABLOY's Code Handle brings award-winning design and digital security to doors
21 January 2021
POWERED BY digital PIN technology from ASSA ABLOY which negates the need for carrying multiple keys, Code Handle door locks ensure private spaces remain private and casual thieves are locked out of areas such as retail stockrooms, sensitive offices and treatment suites.
Code Handle is badged as the perfect entry-level locking handle. With a built-in digital PIN keypad, it upgrades security at any private interior door facing a public space without the requirement for keys or push-button mechanical locks. The existing door handle is simply swapped for a Code Handle. With the Master Code, administrators can issue up to nine different four-to-six-digit PINs to authorised users and amend or cancel PINs whenever they choose.
Easy to retrofit, a Code Handle adds digital PIN security without spoiling the look of an interior space. Installation requires just two screws: the existing cylinder or lock is maintained. The only requirement is to change the handle.
To power the lock’s digital security, standard batteries slot into the handle itself. There’s no need to run cables to the door or to connect the lock to the mains. Neither is there a requirement to fit any electronic access control system. Batteries typically last for 30,000 lock/unlock cycles before it’s time for replacement. That time is shown by an LED indicator on the handle.
Code Handle is simple to install on most internal doors and can be used across various different business verticals, among them healthcare and retail environments. Fylab secures various doors in its Spanish facilities with Code Handle locks. Belgian retailer Patio has used these PIN locks on security doors for staff rooms and toilets. Thirst, a design agency here in the UK, has installed the locks to protect IT room and Boardroom facilities.
Code Handle builds on years of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions’ experience in security handle design. Its brushed steel and chrome exterior looks just like any stylish door handle, and will blend with the interior of every modern office building. It locks itself when the door is closed and allows simple, code-free exit from the inside. Code Handle is also robust. It’s fire certified (to EN 1634) and offers a verified lifetime of at least 100,000 operations.
