The Yale Keyless Digital Lock is now available without a nightlatch and in two new finishes - Polished Brass and Satin Nickel. The Yale Keyless Digital Lock - for timber doors - allows consumers to access and secure their home using a personalised PIN code, with no need for a traditional key.
The lock's PIN code can be set via a keypad to any 4 to 12 digit number of the user's choice and reprogrammed at any time. For added convenience, users can also set up a separate visitor code to provide access for family, friends or tradesmen.
From this month, locksmiths can offer the Yale Keyless Digital lock in two new finishes to coordinate with consumers' decor.
Dave Herbert, Head of Marketing for Yale, said: "We want locksmiths to have the largest armoury possible to ensure they can meet the requirements of all consumers whatever their chosen lock style is.
"We've expanded our offer so the popular Yale Keyless Digital Lock will appeal to those who want to coordinate the product with existing locks throughout their property."
Asec, a security product brand which is sold exclusively through Aldridge Security, the leading distributors of security products is launching a brand new anti-snap range of cylinders and door handles.2012 saw the national media highlight the rise of 'lock snapping' burglaries across the country.
