The challenge

Keeping equipment safe without keys

At Fylab’s private medical practice in Irun, Spain, consultation rooms for one on one sessions with patients also house expensive specialist equipment.

With high volumes of visitors, Fylab needed an electronic locking solution that would keep equipment safe, consultations secure and protect staff’s personal belongings throughout the busy work day.


Key requirements:

  • A simple, secure access solution designed to cope with high volumes of users
  • Locking and unlocking consultation rooms without mechanical keys
  • Easy retro-fit electronic locking solution for all doors on the premises
  • A contemporary solution that looks at home with Fylab’s modern medical workplace aesthetic

The solution

Upgrade security in 10 minutes

With the handle’s easy installation and no extra wires or cables needed, Fylab were able to upgrade to an electronic security system for their 3 consultation rooms in just 10 minutes.

All Code Handle locks are designed to automatically lock when the door closes, meaning employees don’t need to remember to lock up every time they leave a room.


Standard RFID tech on smarter credentials.

Everyone opens doors using MIFARE® credentials. Residents can carry a tag which automatically opens their door, without the need to turn a handle or even push.

Because SMARTair access rights can be individually tailored, residents, staff and visitors access only those doors for which they have authorization. Access permissions can be amended and cancelled when needed.

Code Handle provides the simplest solution for access control in a small facility like ours.
