UNION’S University Solutions


Codehandle, the electronic door opening solution, is ideal for solving University access issues, argues UNION.

Facilitating keyless entry, Codehandle, the coded door handle from UNION, is ideal for University project and research rooms. Restricting access to authorised users only, but easily updated when new users need to be added or deleted.

Brett Adderley, Product Manager for UNION, explains the advantages provided by the standalone solution for Universities: “Masterkey suites continue to provide universities with solutions to control overall access of their sites and facilities, but Codehandle is an ideal supplementary product for isolated applications.

“Seminar rooms and project workspaces are often used by classes, groups and research teams for a select period of time – Codehandle enables controlled access to these different groups of students and lecturers by providing each party with a unique access code, effectively eliminating the hassle and security risk of continually redistributing keys. Codehandle can store up to nine user codes, which can be changed or deleted with use of an administration code when access requirements change.

“Fully–retrofittable, Codehandle is an easy add-on and will work independently of other access control systems, reducing costly installation and integration costs.”. 

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.
