Yale Door and Window Solutions has launched AutoSecure, an innovative new multipoint lock designed to help protect properties and keep residents safe and secure.
The new Yale AutoSecure multipoint lock delivers improved resident security and reduces maintenance call outs and fees for social landlords, thanks to an automatic mechanism which fires all locking points at once.
This reliable new door locking system features a central hook to provide added security and offers a reduced risk of crimes where residents have been followed, as once the door is closed all the hooks throw instantly.
With no need to lift the handle due to opposing hooks, the ease of operation of the AutoSecure is a major benefit for residents with limited strength or poor hand dexterity.
Paul Atkinson, Sales Director of Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: “As experts in the multipoint lock market, we’ve been able to draw on the proven successful technology of the tried and tested Yale Lockmaster, Britain’s best selling multipoint door locking system, when developing the Yale AutoSecure.
“The AutoSecure features an auto-firing mechanism that provides added security. This fires all locking points at once, but has been carefully controlled to prevent the hooks throwing early and damaging the frame.“
The new lock also has a passage mode feature. This ‘hold back’ option is beneficial to social landlords as an alternative to thrown locks as it greatly reduces wear and tear inside the lock and damage to the door frame.
The Yale AutoSecure has a branded stainless steel faceplate to deliver extensive corrosion resistance, further enhancing product service life, even in aggressive environments, and is backed by the Yale 10 year guarantee.
Available in 16mm or 20mm faceplate widths and with 35mm or 45mm backsets, it is suitable for the majority of today’s composite or timber door systems and is fully PAS 24 compliant.
