Assa Abloy’s Code Handle: Securing the Workplace
Assa Abloy’s access control solution, Code Handle, is a quick and easy retrofit for any office building. The locking handle with a built-in digital PIN keypad allows managers to secure sensitive office spaces while granting access to multiple users, each with their own PIN code.
Code Handle is designed to give users peace of mind for their office security without the expense and hassle of installing an access control system, or any need to keep track of keys. In addition, Assa Abloy’s award-winning expertise in handle design has created a locking device that is slim, sleek and attractive. Its brushed steel and chrome exterior looks just like any stylish door handle — and complements the interior of almost any office building.
Installing the system is easy - with no wires, no specialist tools, and no drilling. Two screws attach the Code Handle to almost any interior door up to 80mm thick. Users can even keep their existing door cylinder. If there is an access control or alarm system protecting the main entrance, Code Handle works alongside it without software to integrate or cabling to run.
Two standard batteries slot inside and typically last for 30,000 lock/unlock cycles. A visual indicator tells users when it is time to replace them. The smart door handle is tested for at least 100,000 use cycles, as well as fire certified with EN 1363.
On installation, managers set a Master Code and can issue up to 9 different user PINs with 4 to 6 digits each. Users press their PIN code on the handle’s keypad and the door unlocks. When a door is closed, Code Handle locks automatically.
