UNION Makes Access Control Accessible For All


UNION’s keyless entry system, Codehandle, is an easy route for merchants looking to introduce trade professionals to access control.

Comprising a sleek lever handle with integrated five-button keypad, Codehandle from UNION is an ideal entry-level access control product that will provide merchants and their customers with an additional revenue stream.

With no need for complicated wiring, drilling or system and software integration, the battery-powered Codehandle uses the same footprint as a standard lever handle, making installation quick and easy.

Suitable for use in light commercial and residential properties, Codehandle is easy to stock and display thanks to its attractive UNION branded visi-pack, making it an ideal product for merchant showrooms.

Tina Hughan, Head of Marketing for ASSA ABLOY UK, explains: “Builders’ merchants’ customers are often intimidated by access control products due to the complicated installation and software required. Codehandle works as a standalone unit but still provides many of the benefits associated with keyless entry systems. 

“An aesthetically pleasing product, UNION’s innovative device creates an accessible alternative revenue stream for merchants and their customers, as well as valuable add-on sales. Plus, it's the perfect upsell for merchants looking to make the most of the better margins offered by this product.”

With options for both manual and automatic locking, the device offers nine user codes and one administration code, which can all be changed an unlimited number of times. Entering an incorrect code five times blocks the handle for three minutes, long enough to deter the opportunist intruder.

Finished in satin stainless steel with satin chrome trim adding to its aesthetic appeal, supporting display locks are available on request from your local ASSA ABLOY sales rep.
