A Multi-Point Lock That Looks Like a “Yale Lock”

Wednesday, October 7, 2015 2:01:00 PM

Yale Door and Window Solutions has launched the Yale LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn, a multi-point lock that on the face of the door looks like a traditional Yale rim latch lock.

Designed to complement a wide variety of furniture for both contemporary and traditional door styles, the LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn features all the benefits of a multi-point lock, with a cylinder that can be positioned at both chest and waist height.

Paul Atkinson, Sales Director of Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: “The UK has a huge amount of older housing stock that people want to complement with ‘period feel’ high performance composite doors. The majority of these doors have always aimed to replicate traditional timber door styles, with panels, wood grained skins, stained glass and classical furniture.

“I often hear people asking for ‘a modern multi-point lock that looks like a Yale Lock’ and we can now offer this. The new LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn visually replicates the Yale rim latch that was widely used on all timber doors for many years, with the cylinder set within in a finger pull escutcheon.

The different gearbox heights offered by the LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn are designed to complement two distinct styles in the composite door market. Chest height with finger pull escutcheon for an authentic ‘period feature’ look on classical doors, and waist height plain escutcheon for contemporary European style doors with architectural bar handles.

Compatible with euro profile cylinders, this new lock is a welcome addition to Lockmaster, Britain's best selling multi-point door locking system.

Locks and strikers come non-handed as standard so there is no need for left and right-handed products, which will benefit Yale’s fabricator and installer partners with lower stock holding inventory.

Paul adds: “We will shortly also have a TS007 2* finger pull escutcheon to accompany the LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn. This will improve traditional door style aesthetics, while also assisting fabricators in achieving PAS 24 accreditation.”

The LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn has a Yale branded stainless steel faceplate, tested to 240 hours of natural salt spray, to deliver extensive corrosion resistance, and is backed by Yale’s 10 year mechanical guarantee. 

Available in 16mm or 20mm faceplate widths and in 45mm and 55mm backsets, the LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn has been awarded the Police Secured by Design accreditation and is fully PAS 24 compliant.

Doors fitted with LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn, together with Yale approved hinges, handles and cylinders, are also protected by Yale’s 10 year security guarantee.
