For a small physiotherapy practice, keeping track of mechanical keys can be a tiresome task; however, there is a solution: the Code Handle PIN lock from ASSA ABLOY.
In Irun, in Spain’s Basque country, Fylab sought easy electronic door security for their consulting rooms.
These rooms house expensive specialist equipment for the various therapeutic disciplines offered by Fylab.
Requirements were straightforward: a simple, secure, keyless access solution designed to work in a facility that gets a lot of daily traffic from professionals and the public.
They needed a locking device that is easy to retrofit and incorporates a contemporary device design to match with Fylab’s modern medical workplace.
The Code Handle PIN-locking door handle added electronic security to three consulting-room doors at Fylab — without wires or cables.
Two screws fit a Code Handle to almost any interior door (between 35mm to 80mm thick) and there isn’t even any need to change your existing door cylinder.
Borja Saldias Retegui, Fylab founder, commented: “I am no artist or handyman, but I managed to fit the handles within 10 minutes.”
Code Handle adds electronic security to almost any interior door, without disrupting its aesthetics. If you need to secure a door facing a public space, Code Handle does it subtly and with zero hassle.
At Fylab, Code Handle devices lock both wooden and glass doors, keeping equipment and therapists’ personal belongings safe.
Borja praised the solution as it means keys can be scrapped.
Code Handle removes the need to track cumbersome keys or install expensive access control, because every Code Handle allows up to 9 different PIN numbers (4 to 6 digits), all authorised staff at Fylab can have their own security code.
The practice manager cancels or amends PINs at any time using the master PIN. Two standard batteries (CR2) slot inside the handle, typically lasting 30,000 lock/unlock cycles before replacement – simple as that.
Lars Angelin, Business Development Manager for Code Handle at ASSA ABLOY EMEA, commented: “Code Handle is unique in comparison to common code door locks: it has the code function and battery incorporated inside its handle, so you don’t need to make extra modifications to your door.”
Auto-locking is another helpful feature. When the door closes, Code Handle locks it automatically. You don’t need to put down whatever you are carrying, and no one can open it from the outside while you are not looking.
To keep the door open briefly, you simply hold Code Handle down for 5 seconds and it remains temporarily unlocked. For convenience, Code Handle always opens freely from the inside.
Borja concluded: “Code Handle provides the most simple solution for access control in a small facility.”
