Cost-effective and secure: UNION's codehandle

Product Profile

With budgets suffering in the economic downturn, and building lifecycles forming an important part of project specification, affordable security products with a longer lifecycle are becoming increasingly popular. UNION’s Codehandle offers longevity as well as accessibility, ideal when operating on a tight budget.

UNION’s Codehandle, a coded door handle that facilitates keyless entry, offers an easy update to provide internal doors with digital access control, without the costly work associated with integrating into an existing access control system.

Designed for use on rooms within commercial or public buildings, which require a balance of restricted access and convenience for authorised users, such as storerooms, meeting rooms or cleaning cupboards, Codehandle allows day-to-day work to continue, with quick and easy installation requiring no wiring or cabling, eliminating any loss of profit. Additionally, installation does not require any specialist skill, reducing the initial labour cost.

Ian Bartlett, Head of Product Management, said: “Quality solutions obviously improve a building’s overall accessibility and use, but they can also contribute to reducing a building’s overall repairs and maintenance costs. Budgets have become critical thanks to the challenging economic climate, so UNION has responded with cost-effective and reliable products.

“While there is a lot of focus on cost-effectiveness, it is important to remember that convenience should not be sacrificed in the name of saving on expense.”
