For premises looking to secure rooms in busy public spaces, such as commercial offices, healthcare buildings and retail environments, Code Handle® from ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware provides a stylish, secure and easy-to-fit solution. A sleek and stylish handle with a built-in PIN-pad, Code Handle offers a convenient access control solution for those that need to keep private rooms separate from public areas. Access is granted to authorised individuals via a four-digit code on the handle’s keypad. Code Handle also automatically locks when a door closes, for added security and peace of mind. Access control systems Unlike other costly access control systems, Code Handle can be quickly and easily installed or retrofitted. It is battery-powered and so requires no expensive wiring, and works together with an existing locking unit for ease and convenience – users can keep the current cylinder or lock, and upgrade almost any interior door to Code Handle by securing it in place with simply two screws. Offered with a master code and up to nine different user PINs, Code Handle delivers many benefits over key-operated locks. Not only do businesses have to keep track of keys, which can amount to a great deal of wasted admin and time spent monitoring these, but there is also the cost of getting new keys cut or locks changed should any keys become lost or fall into unwanted hands. Should an employee move on, the PIN for a room can be immediately changed to a different one. Protect private rooms Eryl Jones, Managing Director of the ASSA ABLOY Door Hardware Group, said: “Keeping sensitive files, private rooms, personal belongings and valuable stock safe is critical, but this can be hard to do in busy environments. Public areas with high levels of traffic can be hard to police, but Code Handle delivers a cost-effective and hassle-free solution to protect private rooms from unwanted visitors.” “Complete with a great looking modern design and offered in both left and right-hand options, Code Handle also requires little maintenance, with up to 30,000 cycles provided for each battery. Users also never have to worry about whether they have locked the door when exiting a room, as Code Handle does this automatically.” “Ultimately, Code Handle offers organisations an affordable and secure solution for protecting private rooms from intruders and other members of the public. For those with private rooms that open out onto public-facing spaces, Code Handle is a simple and convenient choice, which can be quickly installed with minimal hassle.”

Yet, keeping track of mechanical keys can be a tiresome task for a small practice. There is a solution: The Code Handle PIN lock from ASSA ABLOY. Keyless access solution In Irun, in Spain’s Basque country, Fylab sought easy electronic door security for their consulting rooms. These rooms house expensive specialist equipment for the various therapeutic disciplines offered by Fylab. Requirements were straightforward: a simple, secure, keyless access solution designed to work in a facility that gets a lot of daily traffic from professionals and the public. They needed a locking device that is easy to retrofit and incorporates a contemporary device design to match with Fylab’s modern medical workplace. Electronic security The Code Handle PIN-locking door handle added electronic security to three consulting-room doors at Fylab, without wires or cables. Two screws fit a Code Handle to almost any interior door (between 35mm to 80mm thick). One doesn’t even need to change the existing door cylinder. “I am no artist or handyman, but I managed to fit the handles within 10 minutes,” says Fylab founder, Borja Saldias Retegui. Benefits for small medical practice Code Handle adds electronic security to almost any interior door without disrupting its aesthetics Code Handle has many advantages for a small medical practice. Code Handle adds electronic security to almost any interior door without disrupting its aesthetics. If one needs to secure a door facing a public space, Code Handle does it subtly and with zero hassle. At Fylab, Code Handle devices locks both wooden and glass doors, keeping equipment and therapists’ personal belongings safe. Nine different PIN numbers “We like the solution a lot because we can do away with keys,” adds Borja. Code Handle removes the need to track cumbersome keys, or install expensive access control. Because every Code Handle allows up to nine different PIN numbers (four to six digits), all authorised staff at Fylab can have their own security code. The practice manager cancels or amends PINs at any time using the master PIN. Two standard batteries (CR2) slot inside the handle, typically lasting 30,000 lock/unlock cycles before replacement. It’s simple. Auto-locking Code Handle provides the most-simple solution for access control in a small facility" “Code Handle is unique in comparison to common code door locks: it has the code function and battery incorporated inside its handle, so you don’t need to make extra modifications to your door,” explains Lars Angelin, Business Development Manager for Code Handle at ASSA ABLOY EMEA. Auto-locking is another helpful feature. When the door closes, Code Handle locks it automatically. One doesn’t need to put down whatever they are carrying, and no one can open it from the outside while one is not looking. To keep the door open briefly, one simply holds Code Handle down for five seconds and it remains temporarily unlocked. For convenience, Code Handle always opens freely from the inside. “Code Handle provides the most-simple solution for access control in a small facility,” says Borja.
