Exit devices are a safe and practical means of unlocking a door from the inside. They are highly recommended, and often required for use on fire exits or secondary exits. They have been proven to greatly reduce the risk of injury during an evacuation and serve as a secure and convenient option for many applications.
Relying on Yale patents, the family's sterling name and sheer ingenuity, Yale Jr. and his colleague Henry Towne established the Yale & Towne Co. in 1868, at the time employing 35 people. In the early 20th century, the company expanded worldwide and employed more than 12,000 people. Throughout the 20th century, purchases, acquisitions and joint ventures have made Yale locks well-known worldwide.
In August 2000 Yale was purchased by the ASSA ABLOY Group, and has since become an important part of the global leader in door opening solutions.
