Wedge TLS (Total Locking System) is a new full-length lock that the company says forms a continuous seal between the door edge and jamb. For decades, consumers have had to rely on a combination of deadbolts and weatherstripping to achieve this connection.

According to the company, Wedge TLS delivers the strength of 75 deadbolts with 75 times the contact over standard deadbolts. It also offers design flexibility so customers can choose from an array of knob, thumb-latch, and lever handle sets.

Test results have shown significant performance improvement in security and energy efficiency, the company says. Wedge TLS’ full-length lock creates a top-to-bottom continuous seal that withstands winds of 242 MPH, achieving DP100. The continuous seal also reduces air infiltration by up to 42 percent, improving energy efficiency.
