How secure is a Yale door latch?

A Yale door latch

Yale is a highly recognisedbrand famed for producing some of the finest security products on the market. Through Meridian security systems, you can find an extensive range of door latches, locks and keys that greatly improve your home and building security. Please visit our Yale locks page if you are interested in fortifying your property via your doors, You will find latches of many colours and sizes with cylinders and automatic deadlocks that ensure a high level of security. Our selection mostly features Yale external night latches in a variety of different designs.

Common Yale door latches come with a separate cylinder lock and a snib button for internal deadlocking and latch holdback. Backset and case sizes can vary between latches and many of them can come in materials such as satin chrome and brass. The examples we supply are bump resistant and are suitable for inward opening right and left-handed wooden doors that are 32-57mm thick. The product is highly secure with a two-year guarantee and two keys supplied. Products such as the traditional Yale night latch include a five pin cylinder mechanism that provides key only access from the outside. The make of your cylinder depends upon which door latch you are looking for but some options can provide extra security without a separate rim cylinder. The Yale roller bolt night latch, for instance, is ideal for push and pull doors in communal areas. Its design prevents accidental lockouts for easy access and allows the doors to move freely. Even though the latch lacks a rim cylinder, it is still capable of providing an extra level of security. The bolt is thrown by a key or handle and when secured, it will extend by 11mm to lock the door. Apart from the cylinder and deadlock features, this example will still include all the best qualities a latch from Meridian can offer such as a two-year guarantee and bump resistance. Meridian features an extensive list of door latches from a number of well-known security brands, on our locks page, you will find some of the best choices for securing your door.
