Retail Therapy with UNIONS Codehandle


Codehandle, the quick and convenient keyless locking system from UNION, is an ideal shop floor and storeroom solution that satisfies both budget and security requirements.

Aesthetically pleasing, the sleek Codehandle from UNION can be used to provide digital access control to internal doors, such as stock rooms and administrative areas, in busy shopping and retail environments.

Easy to install, the 5-digit lever handle works autonomously, reducing complicated integration and wiring processes. Plus, as it fits any standard lever handle footprint, shop-fitters can also benefit from its reduced installation time and cost.

In addition, Codehandle from UNION also provides effective key management solutions – with an option of nine user codes and one master code, the lever handle is ideal for providing ease of access to multiple staff and visitors.

Ian Bartlett, Head of Product Management for UNION, said: “Codehandle is a great product for retail applications, it could even be used to provide access to changing rooms, as well as administrative and ‘backroom’ areas. It reduces the need for key copying, which can add to costs and become difficult to manage across a large staff team, whilst its attractive design is also in-keeping with many shop’s contemporary interiors.” 

Supplied in an attractive compact design with a satin stainless steel finish and a satin chrome trim, the handle has both a manual and automatic locking mode. In manual mode the handle is unlocked by entering a correct user code, and will remain unlocked until the lock button is pressed. When switched to automatic mode the handle will lock promptly following unlocking.

The handle provides both visual and acoustic feedback to operation. Acoustic feedback can be switched off with use of the administration code. The product is powered by two CRV, 3V lithium batteries easily access within the handle, and codes will not be lost when the batteries are removed.

UNION supplies an extensive range of locks and architectural hardware used in many applications through professional locksmiths and ironmongers. UNION is part of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions. For more information visit
