Helping fabricators grow their businesses with the full Lockmaster range

2 July 2021

Companies in the door and window industry are facing exciting yet challenging times.

On the one hand, huge demand for home improvements is giving fabricators and installers an opportunity to grow faster than ever before. On the other hand, ongoing supply issues and rising prices continue to make it difficult for them to source the materials they need to tackle all the new business coming in.

Thankfully, Window Ware has been helping fabricators to pull off this tricky supply chain juggling act.

We have invested heavily in our stock and now carry a larger inventory than ever before.  With more products on the shelf and ready to ship, we're going the extra mile to give fabricators the reliable source of hardware they need to keep pace with increased demand.

One product that’s proving particularly popular in the current climate is the UK-manufactured Lockmaster range of multipoint door locks from Yale. The supply of Lockmaster has kept pace with increased UK demand as manufacturing in the West Midlands has been expanded to meet the high demand. Lockmaster has always been a best seller for Window Ware, but thanks to the booming home improvement and construction markets, we have seen demand for this hardware staple skyrocket.

Window Ware stocks the largest Lockmaster range of any UK distributor and, according to Commercial Director Richard Bryant, the sheer breadth and scale of their offering has helped Window Ware to continue to support fabricators with the quality products and critical quantities they need to fuel fast-moving, hungry production lines that are racing to meet demand.

“We’ve been supplying and supporting the Lockmaster range of multipoint door locks from the very beginning. Indeed, Yale has been a valued supply partner for over 22 years,” said Richard. “During that time, the range has constantly grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of the industry. Fast forward to today, and we are incredibly proud to offer the biggest range of any distributor in the country, with the widest number of locks, keeps and SKUs, including the latest addition to the collection: Lockmaster 21.”

“We’ve been working closely with our supply partners to ramp up our hardware provision and ensure much-needed stock availability for our customers, particularly of well-loved and highly specified products like the Lockmaster range.  We’ve also strengthened our warehouse team, giving us increased capacity to pick, pack and ship out more orders and keep the hardware coming for our busy fabricators.”  

“The Lockmaster range is hugely popular and highly trusted by fabricators all over the country. So much so that, over the years, we reckon we have delivered well in excess of two-million Yale multipoint locks to our customers.”

For over 2 decades, Window Ware’s long partnership with Yale has brought an extensive array of Yale hardware to fabricators nationwide, including door and window locks, shoot bolts, cylinders, letterplates and friction stays, as well as its range of smart technology and security systems. Of course, just as important as the provision of top-quality products, is the technical support that goes with it, and fabricators have been relying on Window Ware’s practical and proven advice to help them turn out on-spec products for years.

Sam Nuckey, Managing Director of Window Ware commented, “Yale is one of the industry’s biggest and most respected brands and we are proud to deliver their fantastic range of products to our discerning customers. It’s a real feather in our cap to be the largest UK stockist of Yale Lockmaster!”

Paul Atkinson, Managing Director at Yale, said, “Window Ware’s commitment to delivering first-class hardware with exceptional customer service has always made them a great fit for the Yale brand and our product range. And it’s great to see them doing so well and flying the flag for our popular Lockmaster range.”
