Codelocks continues its wave of innovation with two new affordable mechanical locks
Leading lock manufacturer Codelocks has introduced two new additions to its range of easy-to-install locks, with the announcement of the CL50 and the CL160. The new locks follow a raft of product releases, as Codelocks continues to invest heavily in research and development.
The CL50 and the CL160 are affordable mechanical push button locks that provide a comprehensive range of functions for light duty entry control. The CL50 is a light duty mechanical push-button lock with tubular latch. The CL160 is the latest edition to the CL100 product line up with a range of additional benefits.
A highly flexible addition to the Codelocks portfolio, the mini mechanical lock is a latch bolt with ‘anti-shim’ plunge and is well suited to low traffic uses. The small size of the lock makes it very versatile, suiting a wide range of applications. There is a 10-button keypad – nine buttons for code selection, offering over 500 possible combinations, plus a ‘C’ button used to reset the chamber.
There are three choices of latch size and a ‘hold open’ function allowing free entry when required without operating the code. The lock is ideal for internal applications that require a smaller footprint.
The CL160 follows on from the CL100, the CL155 and the CL190. The mechanical lock provides two different coding methods – QuickCode and EasyCode. The first allows for simple on-the-door code changes and is ideally suited for applications where regular code changes are required. The second requires the lock to be removed, providing robust management control.
The lock has a 12-button keypad. Ten buttons are used for code selection, with over 1,000 possible combinations; the ‘C’ button used to reset the chamber and the ‘A’ button can be used to change the code. The lock is easy to install and can even be retrofitted to the existing lock prep holes from the CL155 and similar locks.
