Paul Atkinson, Sales Director of Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: “I often hear people asking for ‘a modern multi-point lock that looks like a Yale Lock’ and we can now offer this. The new LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn visually replicates the Yale rim latch that was widely used on all timber doors for many years, with the cylinder set within in a finger pull escutcheon. The different gearbox heights offered by the LOCKMASTER ® KeyTurn are designed to complement two distinct styles in the composite door market. Chest height with finger pull escutcheon for an authentic ‘period feature’ look on classical doors, and waist height plain escutcheon for contemporary European style doors with architectural bar handles. Compatible with euro profile cylinders, this new lock is a welcome addition to Lockmaster, Britain’s best selling multi-point door locking system. Locks and strikers come non-handed as standard so there is no need for left and right-handed products, which will benefit Yale’s fabricator and installer partners with lower stock holding inventory. The LOCKMASTER® KeyTurn has a Yale branded stainless steel faceplate, tested to 240 hours of natural salt spray, to deliver extensive corrosion resistance, and is backed by Yale’s 10 year mechanical guarantee.
