Stable door lock

Yale has launched 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, the company said.

The Lockmaster 21 Stable Door Lock was designed, developed and tested with fabricator Shepley, and can achieve PAS 24:2016 security as standard when incorporated as part of a doorset.

Its security is aided by the Lockmaster hook and anti-lift pin on both the top and bottom leaf. 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, the company said.

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, said: “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, said: “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.”
