    * Nice and easy navigation.
    * Nice products presentation (the boxes with the 'more info' button).
    * Good and simple logo.
    * Easy to spot the call-me number.

    -
    * Old school color choice - the orange is ugly.
    * The orange "x items selected" overlaps the text "Enquiry basket". (IE 8)
    * The validated CSS and HTML buttons don't really fit the color scheme.

    I'm using a MAC so not sure if this is same on PC. When i rollover your left side menu the popup covers 1/4 of the link and needs to be moved to the right.

    Layout is nice, easy to understand

    I will not talking about design here, it is already covered by other members. If you asking for a "real" review, then my question: "what is the company purpose when building this site?" if the main purpose is just for online brochure, then everything is just fine.

    But when their main purpose is to attract more potential customer, the first important thing is build a good content. i read the detail product page description is just contain 1-3 lines, this information is just not enough.

    Seconds is build up some links, to attract visitor especially from Search Engine, that is the basics.

    Overall it is a nice clean design! I would like to see a little more contrast to draw the eye to a specific focal point, however. Perhaps use a complimentary color to the orange somewhere. The orange just seems a little too strong, and my eye doesn't know where to focus. But overall, I do like the design!

    On plus:
    * Nice and easy navigation.

    On minus:
    - old school design
    - improve your logo
    - not good seo, for example you should change link from /showrates.php?mainid=1&subid=1 to smth like this /showrates,access,sub,aluminium-towers (NiceURL's)

    nice design. easy to get around. But I think it would be good if you moved your welcome to content box to the top of the page. I hate going on a website, and having to scroll to find out what they're about.

    Can I ask what you used to build your cart?

    I like the structure. very clean and simple. colouring is subjective but my opinion is the are wishy washy.

    However,
    your site seems to epitomise the old dilemma... do we provide content and let the visitor choose to look further (and buy), or do we provide purchasing opportunities from the outset.

    It seems your site puts the purchasing opps, ahead of the 'what we are about' section. The decision as to which is correct for that business is - well - a business decision for the client.

    my view is that when someone comes to a site such as yours, they want to buy/rent so showing those opportunities first might be a good idea. BUT, I will only conduct a relationship online, with a business that i know something about so I need to see the 'about us' section first or at least easily on initial view of the page(s).

    in concreto, I dislike it when I enter a store and have a sales rep come straight to me trying to see if I am ok. puts me off buying. same thing (for me), with purchase opps on a site. I need to build a relationship (trust is too strong a word although trust is what I need), so I think 'about us' needs to be first.

    when I am happy that i would like to do business, then I can find the retail/trade opportunities on the nav menu.

    food for thought I hope.
