This new initiative means window fabricators and installers will be able to source high quality REHAU profiles integrated with fully approved and tested Yale hardware and furniture. According to REHAU this is a market-first partnership bringing together two well established and trusted brands of the fenestration industry.
Both companies are proud to manufacture in the UK, which can facilitate shorter lead times amid high market demand. The range will include locks, cylinders, shoot bolts, hinges, handles and letter plates – and exclusive to REHAU, Lockmaster 21 will give the ability to cover a wide range of door sizes.
Ultimately the profile manufacturer aims to create economies of scale for customers through one sourcing partnership. This is evident via REHAU and Yale’s inclusive PAS24 testing, which can save fabricators up to £1,000 by cascading the test results to themselves, as well as a combined comprehensive guarantee meaning less replacement over the product’s lifetime. Customers will also be able to draw on a unified technical team with more combined knowledge on the complete window system.
The partnership is formed on the basis that the two companies have shared values and extensive technical expertise across their businesses, with over 200 combined years’ experience.
