Coded door lock

We run a holiday rental business on the Welsh coast.
The front entrance has a communal hallway with coded wall mounted door locking system. From the hallway you enter the lift, also with coded access.
The back door is a simple (?) half glazed UPVC one with a coded lock.
It has worked wonderfully well for two years but sadly, last year two of the locks failed - type in the number, but either it wouldn't open or worse still, it would open without the code. Both locks were replaced under warranty.
Now, this year, one of the locks has failed again and won't open.
The supplier is at a loss as to what to do as he thinks that the sea air is messing with the mechanisms somehow.
He has commented thus:-
Unfortunately Borg don't make a marine grade handle that will fit the upvc system,
an internal surface mounted lock would be ideal but i don't know if they exist?
There are electronic key cylinders now but i don't think they will last in that environment.
I may have to refund the door cost to your developer so he can pursue other options.
