More Than Beige

The proliferation of profile choices and colours has characterised fenestration product development recently. Similarly, to complement this choice, there are now nine colours and finishes of Yale’s suite of door and window furniture.

All door and window furniture, hinges, knockers, numerals and letterplates from Yale will now be available in anthracite grey, dark chrome, satin chrome and brushed stainless steel finishes – as well as the usual shades.


 “Consumers want choice, so fabricators and retailers must provide it. We recognise the importance of colour choice and that’s why we’ve expanded the Yale DWS range to include new colours and finishes.”

– Paul Atkinson 

Managing director, Yale DWS


Different looks

“Expanding our furniture to nine colour options – all of which can be suited – offers incredible opportunities for fabricators and installers, as it makes it much easier to create a bespoke, modern or heritage look,” continues Yale DWS’ Atkinson. “The colour trend is certainly one I see continuing for a long time to come, as once offered in the market it’s difficult to withdraw without losing competitive advantage.”


Quartus and Vertex

Yale DWS’ furniture range is suitable for PVC-U, composite, aluminium and timber applications. It includes the well-established Quartus window handles, door knockers, and the newly launched Vertex range of vertical sliding hardware.

The Vertex range has been created specifically for sash windows incorporating classical ironmongery. It is designed, developed and tested in the UK. While the Vertex sash lock is PAS24 compliant as standard, the whole range has been beta tested with a number of fabricators to assure homeowners of the enhanced quality.



The company’s offering was strengthened with the integration of Trojan in 2016. This enabled Yale to offer a suite of products that provide fabricators and installers with a comprehensive choice of fenestration hardware at various levels of specification, in various base materials – all backed by Yale’s technical expertise and product guarantees.


Lifetime Security Guarantee

Included in this is the Yale Lifetime Security Guarantee which offers up to £3,250 towards repairs or replacements, insurance excess and securing the property in the event of a break-in, as well as discounts for the homeowner at


Competitive edge

Atkinson says: “With the financial and emotional cost of being burgled so high, the Yale Lifetime Security Guarantee is a good choice for fabricators, retailers and installers looking for a competitive edge to enhance their sales. First and foremost, it provides homeowners with the reassurance that the hardware installed on their door or window is of a tested standard that makes a break-in less likely. Secondly, it comes from a widely trusted brand that inspires confidence in homeowners and gives them the peace of mind that – should the worst happen – the manufacturer will support them with a package to cover any resulting cost.”
