Leading hardware distributor, Window Ware has strengthened its partnership with Yale Door and Window Solutions by introducing to its portfolio the revolutionary new Yale Blade window lock.

The Yale Blade’s patented rotary action mechanism has been designed to deliver multiple benefits to fabricators, installers and homeowners alike, delivering added value at all stages of the supply chain.

Says Rachel Attwood, Managing Director at Window Ware: “We were delighted to be an early supplier of Yale’s Doormaster™ so it made perfect sense to be at the forefront of Yale Blade, yet another revolutionary new product.
“Anything that helps our customers be more efficient and flexible, which Blade sets out to do, has to be good news. It also fits neatly into Window Ware’s promise of “we’ve got it” and as security remains a key concern of homeowners, offering them the reassurance of a brand like Yale is certainly something we’re happy to support.”

Yale Blade offers fabricators the ability to fit keeps at any time of the manufacturing process, without pre-marking to offer a more flexible and efficient production process. The unique design also ensures one locking point height for all profiles, reducing stock holding for multi system users.

The rotary locking action of the Yale Blade significantly reduces mechanical wear, further eliminating compression loss and ensuring consistent weather-sealing performance for the life of the product and its fully retracting locking points completely eliminate cam clash, significantly reducing costly call backs.

Occupying the full depth of the eurogroove, the Yale Blade provides the window with increased integral strength and with unique lock engagement the full length of the keeps, Yale Blade exceeds the stringent requirements of PAS24 and as a result, carries the Police approved Secured by Design accreditation.

Kevin Hill, Managing Director of Yale Door and Window Solutions added: “Innovation in its true form will always be economically important and we believe that the launch of Yale Blade represents a real revolution in window locking technology that helps move it to a higher plane for the complete supply chain.

“Every element of Yale Blade has been carefully considered by our research and development team to design, engineer and manufacture a window lock that is different and ultimately better than what is available for the benefit of our established partners such as Window Ware, their customers and end users.”

Yale Door and Window Solutions has developed the Yale Blade in an aluminium construction to deliver extensive corrosion resistance, further enhancing product service life, even in aggressive environments and is backed by a 12 year mechanical guarantee.
