Yale has announced the introduction of Rapide into its window hardware portfolio, formally known as Yale Blade.
Renamed thanks to its fast to fit features, the window lock requires as little as six screws, and due to the long curvature of the lock, removes the need to line up the keeps as you would with a standard espagnolette lock. Grant Stratford, Technical Director for Window Hardware, commented: “We have worked closely alongside our fabricator partners to produce a window lock that improves the fabrication and installation process, while maintaining the high standard of security Yale is known for.

Andy Goldsmith, Chief Executive of Hope House adds: “The £108,000. raised is enough to pay for all the running costs for specialist care to children at Hope House Children’s Hospice for 10 days which is truly staggering!

With security at its forefront, it is made from aluminium and has three times the locking surface area of a standard, multi-point or shoot-bolt window lock. The lock can withhold huge weight and has been mechanically tested to withstand 4,500 newtons of force. In addition, it has been tested for corrosion resistance for 480 hours and exceeds 30,000 cycles.
