Yale launches Flush Sash Shootbolt The security specialists at Yale have launched a new Shootbolt lock to fit modern flush sash systems that offers the usual security credentials you would expect from Yale, with the additional convenience of a night vent facility. Paul Atkinson, Sales and Commercial Director for Yale, comments: “The developing UK fenestration market has seen huge growth in flush sash systems offering both a traditional and contemporary aesthetics. We have enhanced our proven Shootbolt range with a lock to suit flush sash systems, allowing homeowners to achieve the look they desire, without compromising on security. “The Yale Shootbolt system has variants suitable for flush sash and French casement, as well as standard casement styles of window. The new Shootbolt Flush Sash Window Lock is available with a choice of cropping and non-cropping variants to suit a variety of manufacturing and stocking preferences.” Along with chamfered security shootbolts, the new Shootbolt variant features a secondary cam. This addition allows for the ‘night vent’ position which enables the window to be partially opened but still locked via the window handle. This position offers a means of ventilation and can improve the air quality in a home but should only be used when someone is inside the property as the lock is more secure when fully closed. Manufactured to the highest specifications and complying with British security standards, the Yale Shootbolt Flush Sash Window Lock delivers superior security performance; safeguarding homes from intruders. It also helps to protect against the elements by delivering optimal levels of weather-proofing, which is aided by the compression adjustable cams. The lock is Secured by Design accredited, PAS 24: 2016 compliant and backed by Yale’s 10-year mechanical guarantee – providing ultimate peace of mind to homeowners. Windows fitted with a Yale Shootbolt on flush sash as part of a Yale PAS 24 specification are also protected by Yale’s ‘Lifetime Security Guarantee*’ which allows fabricators and installers to take advantage of Yale's reputation for excellence with the consumer.
