Yale Door and Window Solutions has launched the Mantis 4 multipoint door lock with a number of developments over its existing Mantis 3.

These include a new push-in snib feature that ensures the door remains open when required and pre-compression rollers positioned within 100mm of the auxiliary cases for enhanced sealing, compression and security performance. Screw-in, hardened plastic tidy boxes also provide improved longevity and a more aesthetically pleasing look.

The new lock retains several features of its predecessors, such as a chamfered linear bolt, an oversize deep penetrating hook offering 25mm engagement, and Allen key compression adjustable keeps as standard.

Yate says the Mantis 4 benefits from recent enhancements to its manufacturing processes. Among these are improving its plastic moulding cell by buying additional moulding machines, updating robots, implementing robotic sub-assembly, and creating a full robotic demoulding, sorting, bagging, and boxing solution.

Managing director Paul Atkinson said: “Our new Mantis 4 multipoint door lock significantly improves on the well-established Mantis 3, which can trace its heritage back to Millenco Hardware, a business that was acquired and integrated with Paddock Fabrications before being sold and integrating with Yale in 2010.

“In recent years, our plastic moulding cell has really come into its own and we have continually invested in this area of our manufacturing operation with a series of updates.”
