Trend Marine introduces Endurance range of stainless steel patio doors
November 13, 2013
Trend Marine Products have responded to their customers’ requests for a keenly priced top quality stainless steel framed patio door with the launch of a new range of doors to coincide with this year’s METS in Amsterdam.
“Our customers have asked for a range of stainless steel doors which provides all of the high quality features of our standard products but at a more economical price. We set our engineers the task to meet our customers’ needs, and feedback from the sector indicates that this has been achieved”, commented Frank Buckley, Trend Marine’s managing director.
The new stainless steel door range, called “Endurance” is available in a wide variety of configurations with 2, 3 or 4 panes. High quality 316L stainless steel is used to produce attractively finished frames on the inside and a modern “all glass look” with minimum visible metalwork is presented to the outside. The range of doors is produced in bespoke sizes using efficient manufacturing methodologies for both small and large volumes. The lock that has been chosen is compact so the frames are sleek, and there are a number of choices of handle and shoot bolt arrangements to suit varying boat layouts. The result is that Trend Marine is able to offer the wide and flexible range of flat Endurance doors at extremely attractive prices to high volume and niche builders alike.
In addition to the flat doors on offer in the Endurance range, curved and programmable electrically powered units have also been developed to increase the range of options available to meet customers’ needs.
Trend’s renowned 12 strong engineering team is on hand to advise on optimal product specification to suit every application.
Robin Thatcher, Technical and Sales Director at Trend Marine observed: “The Endurance range is easier and faster to produce than other stainless steel patio doors allowing the doors to hit the customers’ price points. This was a key success criterion for the project as was the more stylish overall appearance than competitive products, with its subtly designed threshold and header sections.”
OEM sector sales manager Jim Boulton is very excited by the initial reaction from Trend’s leading OEM customers who have previewed the Endurance range. “Our stainless steel and aluminium sliding yacht doors are renowned throughout the OEM sector for their style and durability. We are very aware as Europe’s premier supplier of glazing and door solutions that production margins are being challenged at yacht builders; they demand quality and performance at a keen market price. Our team has listened and produced what the customer wants, quality, performance, and outstanding feature sets whilst not breaking the budget. The team has worked hard on the project and it has all the hallmarks of success.”
The new Endurance door is on display on Trend Marine’s stand at METS Hall 11.321.
