Patol, the UK manufacturer of industrial fire alarm and heat detection products, has started the new year with the launch of a complete revamp of its website, with a clean new look and a more user-friendly platform.
The company is proud of its heritage, with more than 50 years of supplying fire detection solutions to projects throughout the world. This is highlighted on the homepage, with examples of the wide range of industries in which the company operates, from car parks and tunnels to power generation, warehouses and waste management. Visitors interested in the products relating to specific markets can drill down directly via a single click while those wanting to know more about the complete range of Patol products can also easily access the information.
The homepage features Patol’s three most popular solutions: the aspirating smoke detector ASD 535 which can monitor an area of up to 5,760 square metres; the Digital Linear Heat Detection Cable (LHDC) which provides cost-effective early detection of fire conditions and overheating; and the 5000 Series of Infrared Transit (Conveyor) Heat & Flame Sensors.
Iain Cumner, Patol Sales Director, comments – “a lot of information was available on the previous website but it wasn’t always the easiest to find. Ease of navigation was a fundamental requirement in the brief for this revamp and that has certainly been delivered with the new site. This is illustrated by the simple drop-down menu on the homepage through which most of the information can be reached in just a couple of clicks. We have retained features of the previous site that had proved popular with our customers, including access to our Technical Library, but it is now more readily accessible. By providing just some very basic information, visitors can download datasheets on our full range.”
For those who want to make enquiries, either through the UK HQ or the Patol office in India, simple forms are provided, while details of Patol’s numerous accreditations are also featured.
Cumner continues – “we recognise the ever-increasing role of websites as the first port-of-call for people seeking information. That, of course, needs to be backed by market knowledge and technical expertise from the people that we employ so we continue to invest in both. We have retained SEO management of the site to help us ensure that we remain in front of existing and potential customers, providing the opportunity to highlight our wide ranging response to fire detection in many varied applications.”
