Following on supply of locks for the UK’s T45 frigate program, we are delighted to have supplied a similar solution to the Royal Dutch Navy for their new fleet auxiliaries. Crewed as they are by the large number of people required to re-supply front of line warships, these fleet auxiliary ships face security issues for their personnel, so in this case the requirement was for a zone based wing lock system to cover personal lockers, wardrobes and other storage areas. With typically over 2000 locks on each ship, a project based master key system was specified for crew cabins and furniture or lockers in communal areas.
Our specialist advisors carried out planning, supply, specialist project packaging, administration of coding/delivery and long-term backup support. Not only was it important to have a zoned security with key operated wing locks offering a very high number of “differs” – up to 5000 different combinations with master keys – it was also important that the locks and keys were separately labelled for specific locations and delivered at a very early stage so that they could be brought together later during final fit out.
