Home security specialist Yale has introduced a revolutionary new range of Doormaster™ replacement multipoint locks, designed to help installers offer something different and take early advantage of this growing market.

Multipoint locks are fitted to 80% of all new external residential doors and many older multipoint locks are reaching the end of their lifecycle. Over the coming months and years, growing numbers of multipoint locks are expected to fail, with over one million expected to require replacement in 2012.

The new Yale Doormaster™ range represents a genuine ‘one visit, one repair’ solution, thanks to a cleverly designed, compact range of replacement locks, replacement gearboxes and “overnight” locks.

All Doormaster™ replacement multipoint locks are based on the latest Yale High Security YS170 product platform and enable installers to instantly replace the multipoint locks in virtually all PVCu, composite and timber doors with just six product variants.

The range includes a Professional series, developed with professional door experts in mind, which includes three croppable replacement locks, offering a high security solution for virtually all multipoint locks with multiple hooks or deadbolts and 35mm or 45mm backsets, whether in PVCu, timber or composite doors.

To address gearbox failure, the Doormaster™ range also includes replacement gearboxes covering most of the market. Finally, for emergency installations where a temporary solution is required, installers can choose from seven ‘overnight’ locks, which will quickly and economically secure 90% of doors.

The Yale Doormaster™ range also includes two versatile Universal replacement multipoint locks, offering a one hook, two roller and two mushroom roller solution for PVCu doors with 35mm or 45mm backset locks. Quick and easy to install, Universal locks are supplied complete with a pre-assembled one piece keep and all fixings

The final Doormaster™ replacement lock is the easy-fitting Adjustable replacement lock, which offers a high security solution for around 90% of PVCu doors with multiple hooks or dead bolts, without the need for cutting.

Both the Professional and Adjustable replacement multipoint locks are tested to the Police Approved Secured By Design standard and are PAS 24 doorset capable.

Plus, the keeps on all Doormaster™ replacement locks and Overnight locks feature the patented Uni-packer™ system pre-assembled along their length. This market leading innovation will fit all PVCu profiles and makes keep installation extremely straightforward, eliminating the need for loose plastic packers.

Jon Walker of Yale Door & Window Solutions said: “In the current competitive window and door market, installers need to offer something different to add that competitive edge. Yale’s Doormaster™ range provides a new business opportunity in a growth market, with increasing numbers of multipoint locks expected to fail as they reach the end of their lifecycle.

“The Doormaster™ range offers a genuine ‘one call, one repair’ solution, regardless of whether installers have switched profile or hardware supplier over the years. The whole range of multipoint locks, gearboxes and “overnight locks” - in fact everything the installer needs - has been compressed into just 22 product lines!

“The range includes replacements for virtually all existing multipoint locks, which means door installers can offer a swift solution to householders in the event of lock failure or they can proactively target existing customers to sell a replacement multipoint lock installation as a preventive measure.”
