Yale products chosen by market leader for timber doorsets


The performance and quality of Yale Door and Windows Solutions’ products has been endorsed as Falcon Panel Products Ltd - the UK market leader for certified timber doorset components and timber panels – has opted to take the full range of Yale hardware on its new Stredor external doorset system.

The Stredor doorset range – designed and developed for external and internal use in fire, smoke, security and acoustic applications – will incorporate Yale’s Lockmaster AutoEngage multi-point lock, Platinum 3 Star Cylinder, Postmaster Professional FD letterplate, and Quartus anti-microbial combi door handle.

Neil Harrison, Door Technical Manager at Falcon Panel Products, comments: “As with all our doorset systems, our dedicated in-house technical team carried out extensive fire and security testing in collaboration with Yale during the development of Stredor, to ensure it performs to the highest specifications. It was therefore vital that the door hardware we chose matched these standards and our high expectations.

“The products from Yale absolutely met our requirements regarding fire safety, security, and overall performance. As a result, we are thrilled that together we’re bringing this Stredor system to market which achieves solutions for both national and European standards.”

The Yale Lockmaster AutoEngage multi-point lock is designed to achieve PAS 24:2016, FD30 and FD60 when tested as part of a door assembly and has been tested to exceed 100,000 cycles - that’s the equivalent of 34 years operation*. While the company’s Platinum 3 Star Euro cylinder has been approved to TS007:2014 and SS312 Diamond Standard and is endorsed by the Police preferred Secured by Design scheme.

Further ensuring optimal security, the Yale Postmaster Professional FD letterplate features an inner flap with a positive stop feature to guard against common attack methods and ‘fishing’ compliant to TS008.

Finally, the Quartus combi door handle provides ultimate corrosion resistance with an anti-microbial coating that reduces up to 99.99% of microbes on its surface. This is the most effective way to reduce transmission of microbes from the handle surface

“We’re delighted that Falcon Panel Products Ltd have chosen our door hardware for the Stredor doorset systems,” comments David Pridmore, Key Account Manager for Yale Door and Windows Solutions. “A great benefit is that (provided they are up-to-date with their enhanced security audit testing) certified customers of the Stredor will be able to buy our products in the scope without needing to do any additional testing.”

David adds: “We are looking forward to building on this success and developing our partnership with the team at Falcon Panel Products further in the future.
