Since its launch in 2019, Yale’s Lockmaster AutoEngage lock has made great developments in quality, durability and convenience.
The multipoint locking system is known for combining security and versatility to create the ideal solution for a wide range of door applications. Now, with new commitments to fire door safety and sustainability, the AutoEngage lock continues to set the standard for both contemporary and heritage doorsets.
Providing a range of new user features and benefits, the Yale Lockmaster AutoEngage multipoint lock will now be available in stainless steel as standard, resulting in advanced product durability, improved aesthetics and reduced carbon footprint.
As part of Yale’s commitment to fire safety, the Lockmaster AutoEngage is designed and tested to exceed the requirements of FD60, when tested as part of a doorset. The FD60 specification tests doorsets to withstand at least 60 minutes of protection against fires.
The AutoEngage lock also features a new holdback snib to prevent accidental lockouts; as well as an automatic lock mechanism which engages as soon as the door is closed – making it ideal for the growing trend in non-lever operational door styles.
Available for both composite and timber doors, and with backsets now available in 45mm, 55mm, and 65mm, the AutoEngage is designed and built to Yale’s exacting standards.
Thanks to a unique gearbox design, the system can be used with either key retract or lever operation furniture, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
Paul Atkinson, Sales and Commercial Director at Yale comments: “We are so pleased to announce our developments on the Lockmaster AutoEngage, and we are always working towards a more durable, sustainable and accessible future for all our product ranges.
“The AutoEngage system is designed to offer leading installation tolerance to aid easy fitting, and is also extremely easy to use – therefore ideal for residents with limited dexterity. We hope this product will add convenience as well as improved security to homes across the UK.”
