Stable partnership

Yale developed a stable door lock for Force 8, enabling its range of stable doors to gain PAS24:2016 accreditation.

The lock featuring a hook and anti-lift pin on both the top and bottom leaf, along with a combination of hook and deadbolt centre cases. The new lock has been designed to complement both modern and traditional stable door styles in the Force 8 range.

Force 8 has been using Yale’s Mantis multipoint door lock for over 15 years and it was the quality and reliability of this lock that led Force 8 to turn to Yale in its search for a new stable door solution.

Dennis Sumner, managing director at Force 8, said: “The Mantis multipoint door lock really is a first-class solution, so we felt confident that Yale would be able to produce an excellent stable lock as well. We’re delighted with the result because it scores equally high marks for security and style, which is exactly what we were after.

“We often look to Yale when it comes to the security of our products and find their locks and service to be very good. As well as the new stable door lock and the Mantis lock, we also use the Yale Platinum 3 Star cylinder, various Yale door handles, and the Yale Elite Escutcheon.”
