UNION launched award winning codehandle™ UNION, one of the leading suppliers of architectural hardware, has launched CodehandleTM, a stylishly designed door handle that has an integrated mechanical lock solution for convenient locking of inner doors. The CodehandleTM grabbed a prestigious Detektor International award at the Sectech security show in October last year. The jury praised the handle for being “a triumph for aesthetics and smart design,” and added: “with the CodehandleTM the market has been blessed with an electromechanical code handle that suits almost any indoor environment. Simplicity in installation, design and use clearly points to an effective solution for a variety of settings.” This new e-locking solution from UNION is controlled with an integral key-pad with five buttons. The handle is programmable with one mastercode and nine user codes. The solution also offers automatic locking during timed hours and does not require any wires or special fitting. The handle is powered by two CR2 lithium batteries, which last for 100,000 operations. CodehandleTM is available separately or as part of a Sashlock or Nightlatch pack. “The product’s compact design, highly competitive pricing and ease of installation ensures that it is the smartest code lock on the market” says Pauline Richardson, Product Manager at UNION Architectural Hardware For more information please call 0845 223 2124.
