YALE has introduced the Postmaster Professional letterplate in response to PAS 24:2016 which is now mandatory for all projects that wish to meet Secured by Design (SBD), including the requirement for TS008 letterplates to be installed on all doorsets.
Paul Atkinson, commercial director, Yale Door and Window Solutions, explained: “It has an external austenitic 304 stainless steel letter flap that opens 180 degrees to help eliminate excess leverage on pivot points, and a complete peripheral seal on the external flap to help form a thermal and acoustic barrier.
“We’ve ensured that there is sufficient space between the door cut out and the outer flange in order to aid with the fabrication process.
“The Yale Postmaster Professional is available in a range of finishes including polished, brushed, satin silver, gold, black and white, with colour matching inside and out if required, and its elegant and slim design makes it suitable even for narrow hallways. It also has no sharp corners, reducing the risk of injury to children and pets when held open by packages and newspapers.”
