The latest Yale products to be added to Carl F Groupco’s catalogue are the Encloser Window Espagnolette and the Friction Stay range. The addition of these products allows Carl F Groupco customers to fit their windows with a complete suite of PAS 24 compliant Yale hardware and, as a result, gain access to Yale’s Lifetime Security Guarantee. Approved fabricators and installers with PAS 24 accredited windows can apply for the scheme which, if successful in meeting the criteria, entitles their customers to the full benefits of the guarantee. One illustration of a full package is the Encloser Window Espag, Yale Friction Stay, Sparta Window Handle and ASD security devices.

Commenting on the latest added-value service, Carl F Groupco’s Managing Director John Crittenden said:

“Outstanding protection against forced entry is offered by Yale products and this Lifetime Security Guarantee confirms confidence in the quality of the products. It is also a strong selling feature. In the unlikely event of a break-in, up to £1,000 will be paid towards the customer’s home insurance excess to ensure they’re not out of pocket and up to £1,000 is offered towards repairs or replacements. Cover extends to refunding up to £250 in call-out fees to secure the home if a break-in occurs due to failure of a Yale component and also £1,000 compensation to the homeowner to apologise for any distress caused.”

Yale’s Friction Stay is a versatile hinge available in Standard, Egress Only, Egress Easy Clean options offering easy friction adjustment and excellent weather sealing and draught performance. The product is Secured by Design compliant when fitted with Yale ancillary security devices which offer additional hinge side security. The hinge can be fitted to PVCu, timber and aluminium windows.

The Encloser Window Espagnolette is a high-performance window lock solution that offers Secured by Design accreditation thanks to its bi-directional locking cams. Designed for easy installation, this is a ‘fast fit’ lock which doesn’t require cropping. The espag is suitable for PVCu, aluminium / timber profiles and all sash sizes from 270mm to 1,400mm.
