Summary

Summary: 
UK manufacturer of manually operated gate locks with a class-leading long throw is looking for partners. The locks use a Euro cylinder system, are adaptable to other lock systems, are ideal for large gates and provide high security across the full range of settings. UK company is seeking distributors and retail chains to offer distributorship agreement. They are also offering licence agreement to potential licensees who would like to manufacture the products themselves.

Description

Description: 

UK company manufactures manually operated gate locks for metal and wooden gates, with three broadly defined categories: Domestic/Homeowner, agricultural and industrial. The locks feature a Euro Cylinder lock system meaning they can be incorporated into customers’ keyed-alike or master key systems.
The unique feature of this UK Company's gates are the 70 mm ‘throw’ of the sliding bolt that makes the gates more secure than any others on the market. This UK company also offers a range of accessories including double gate kits.

The gate locks are an ideal alternative to the established manufacturers’ offerings and have proven to be reliable in a variety of applications. UK Company is active in the UK market since the year 2011 and the gate locks are used across all UK for different purposes. In agricultural environments, most customers purchase locks for multiple gates. In domestic settings, locks are mainly fitted to driveway gates. In industrial environments, gates protect equipment or premises.
UK Company distributes its products directly to retailers in the UK and also sells its products online. They are looking for partners to distribute their products across the world. They offer distributorship agreement to retail chains or any other security companies, who are interested in being a part of this market. UK Company is also interested in giving licences to companies, who wish to manufacture the products themselves. In this case, a licencing agreement is offered.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
-UK company's lock mechanism offers a long ‘throw’ of the sliding bolt (70 mm). The gates are more secure and even with minor movement of the gates, the locks still engage deep into the post. - Competitors in the market typically offer a throw of just 23-40 mm so this is a major advantage. -The locks are designed to accept a standard Euro Cylinder (30:30) which can be changed with the lock in-situ if required. - With the extensive range of Euro Cylinders on the market and also the option to fit a Master Key or Keyed-Alike system, the locks offer excellent flexibility to end-users. -The locks are straightforward to fit and they come complete with all necessary fixings and a fitting template. -A range of accessories including double gate solutions is also available.
