Trend Marine Products Ltd will include company’s marine lock solutions within its catalogue of marine doors

Smart Locks for Yachts has announced an exclusive UK distribution partnership with Trend Marine Products Ltd, a designer and manufacturer of marine doors and glazing systems, ahead of both companies’ presence at the METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam next week.

Smart Locks for Yachts will be demonstrating its smart marine lock system, RemoteKey, on Trend Marine Products’ latest sliding doors on Stand 12.321.

“Having developed our smart marine locking systems to suit all aspects of yacht access control over the past three years, we are looking forward to the next stage of our brand development in an exclusive partnership with Trend Marine,” says Iain Davie, founder and CEO of Smart Locks for Yachts.

“It is the perfect fit: Our innovative smart locking systems and the manufacturer of so many of the marine doors we have been fitting them into. Trend Marine is globally renowned for its quality and innovation in design. We are very excited to include our smart marine lock solutions within its catalogue of marine doors.”

An easy-to-use encrypted smart locking solution, RemoteKey can be wirelessly fitted to both exterior and interior doors aboard almost any vessel. Fitted by simply swapping out with the old key lock with smart the Euro or Trioving cylinder locking system, both the RemoteKey and superyacht system enable the owner or captain to control access from a central point on board or remotely – and, crucially, without extensive refit.

Removing the old-fashioned key and lock mechanism, the system also allows users to download access logs and lock down certain zones of the vessel for complete peace of mind.

RemoteKey’s Networked Key Pad feature, to be globally debuted at METSTRADE, allows remote access to change PINs and utilises the secure radio network to unlock doors or can activate a relay to overcome range restrictions. Mounted in its waterproof enclosure, it is ideal for dockside use to extend or retract a yacht’s passarelle.

As part of the exclusive distribution deal, Trend Marine will provide upgrades to customers’ existing doors and supply tailored smart lock packages to its current and existing OEM clients.
