UNION has launched CodeGUARD 5, the first access control device available to meet the new BS 8607 grade 5 standards.
The recently introduced grade 5 standards provide the most stringent level of security and access control for mechanical push button locks to date. Providing an extremely strong level of attack resistance, grade 5 was introduced because of the need for a high-security push button lock.
CodeGUARD 5 delivers a ‘one-stop’ security and access control solution, where the latch and lock are integrated and tested together. As a result, CodeGUARD 5 offers users an automatic deadlocking unit.
Featuring BSI Kitemark certification, CodeGUARD 5 provides access control and security in a single package, delivering assured protection for securing people, assets and data, while offering the convenience of access control without the need for wiring.
One of CodeGUARD 5’s key features is its 20mm deadlocking latch. This ensures protection from physical attacks, such as a crowbar being placed between a frame and lock to force a door open.
The mechanical push button lock system is secured through more than 2,000 code combinations. The unit is also always supplied to customers with a passcode different to the standard factory settings, for optimal security.
Providing extremely high corrosion resistance, the new CodeGUARD 5 solution is also ideal for perimeter security applications. The system has undergone a salt spray test for 240 hours to demonstrate its capabilities in highly corrosive environments, with its aesthetics and performance unaffected over time.
Suitable for 30- and 60-minute timber fire doors, and 240-minute metal fire doors, CodeGUARD 5 is offered with universal handing and fixings, so the system is easy to order and specify too. This is all backed by a three-year guarantee.
