We live in a very modern time. As Steven Fry once said; “this is the most modern minute, right now.”

He’s right. Everything is becoming less complicated, more connected and simpler. Take cars for example. Until about 15-ish years ago, remote central locking was preserved for the luxury car market or those who could afford to have it retro-fitted. Now, it is a standard feature on every car that is made now. Who would ever go back to manually locking your car?

Ever thought of locking or unlocking your door via the use of a remote? Or even less, a stylish keypad on your door handle? Well John Fredericks now has such a solution. The Yale keyfree door handle.

This new handle allows you to remotely unlock your door using a fob, just like your car. Great if you’re rushing into the house to escape the bad weather! If you don’t fancy carrying a fob with you, a pin number is all that is required. Pick a number, anywhere between 4-12 digits, plug it in, and the door unlocks. Simple. No keys required, so no worrying if you’ve locked the door as it automatically locks on the latch when you close it anyway.

The product has been rigorously tested over the course of the last few years and is now available on John Fredericks’ high quality PVCu single doors and composite doors. They make a great addition to their already fantastic range of doors, and will help installers gain that vital USP over others where this product isn’t available. We have been fitting their doors with the keyfree door handle for the last few months and we can only report totally positive feedback from all departments for the handle!
