The Yale patio door lock features up to six, bi-directional security hooks

The Yale patio door lock, supplied by door and window hardware distributor Carl F Groupco, is becoming increasingly popular, steadily gaining positive attention since first appearing in the range in 2019. Manufactured by door lock experts Yale, the patio door lock is a secure choice for inline patio doors, its distributer claims.

Offering six, fully stainless steel, bi-directional security hooks, and a stainless steel faceplate, the product provides anti-lift multipoint locking. The optional addition of shootbolt locking points offers door fabricators enhanced security to suit their project, says Carl F Groupco.

Featuring a 20mm backset and a 92mm PZ centre case, the patio lock is suitable for a wide range of profiles. Carl F Groupco also supplies supporting hardware for the patio lock, including patio buffers, wheels, and handles.

The lock has been corrosion-resistance tested to BS EN 1670:2007 Grade Four, and is reportedly deemed to provide very high protection. The lock has also been tested to a minimum of 100,000 operational lifespan cycles and comes with a 10-year mechanical guarantee.
