Yale has responded to the increasing trend for stable door functionality in more contemporary settings as well as cottages and farmhouses with the launch of its new Lockmaster 21 Stable Door Lock.
Made specifically for PVC and composite stable doors, the lock is a combination of Yale’s recently launched Lockmaster 21 multi-point door lock and its Lockmaster Keyturn key-operated multi-point lock for doors with a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This enables it to provide the highest levels of security, style and functionality, says the company.
The Lockmaster 21 Stable Door Lock has been designed, developed and tested with Shepley, the leading trade window and composite door fabricator, to enable them to deliver the very best performance. The stable door lock has been designed to achieve PAS 24:2016 security as standard when incorporated as part of a doorset – demonstrating that it has satisfied a range of criteria to prove it can resist common methods of attack from burglars.
Its ‘impeccable’ security is aided by the signature Lockmaster hook and anti-lift pin on both the top and bottom leaf, maintaining the hardware story across multiple door styles offered by the majority of fabricators. It also features an easy-to-use push-in snib feature to prevent accidental lock-outs.
The range includes 35mm and 45mm backsets, is available with or without rollers, and comes with a two-piece keep that makes installation easier.
It is tested to 240 hours of corrosion resistance (Grade 4) and features a faceplate made of 430 stainless with Yale branding.
Tony Ball, sales director at Shepley, comments: “We were pleased to work with Yale on the development of the Lockmaster 21 Stable Door Lock, providing our expertise to help ensure that testing and functionality are of the highest possible standard. The final product is an excellent addition to the market, and will enhance both our own range of stable doors and other stable doors across the industry.”
Paul Atkinson, managing director at Yale, adds: “The new Lockmaster 21 Stable Door Lock is a long anticipated, welcome addition to our range, enabling us to offer an outstanding solution for composite, timber and PVC stable door sets, which are now a popular choice in modern settings as well as more traditional ones.
“The range provides all the security and compliance benefits that people expect from our Lockmaster line, while seamlessly fitting in with the aesthetics of stable doors. In this way, it provides the ultimate lock solution for fabricators and installers of stable doors.”
