Assa Abloy: Code Handle for Retail
Assa Abloy’s access control solution Code Handle, a battery-operated digital lock, secures private doors with a slim-line handle. The product is especially suited for retail environments, where an elaborate electronic access control system is not an option.
All retail outlets have doors off their shop floor where the public should not go. Yet managing keys creates a distracting staff workload. Code Handle is a locking handle with a built-in PIN keypad that adds reliable electronic security to almost any interior door, with no unsightly push-button unit. Code Handle is easy for shop staff to operate: Managers can set their own Master Code and issue up to nine different user PINs with four to six digits per code. Employees and authorised visitors such as cleaners press their code on the handle’s keypad and the door unlocks. When closing the door, the Code Handle locks automatically.
Installation is easy, with no wiring or specialist tools. Two screws attach the handle to almost any interior door up to 80mm thick, in left- or right-hand versions. There is no need to change the existing door cylinder. Two standard CR2 batteries slot inside and typically last for 30,000 lock/unlock cycles before replacement. The system is tested for at least 100,000 operations throughout its life, as well as fire certified (EN 1363).
