Automatic lock

Yale has launched a new automatic lock, suitable for both contemporary and heritage door styles.

The Lockmaster AutoEngage is a new automatic lock mechanism that engages as soon as the door is closed, designed for the growing trend in non-lever operation door styles.

Available for both composite and timber doors, the system can be used with either key retract or lever operation furniture, and, since it is easy to use, it is ideal for residents with limited dexterity.

Paul Atkinson, sales and commercial director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, said: “We’re pleased to launch the Yale Lockmaster AutoEngage, which offers a combination of performance and simplicity seldom seen in domestic locks.”
