Affable Aardvark goes Widescreen

Our new Online shop at www.affableaardvark.com was restricted to a narrow screen. The narrow screen (750 pixels wide) meant that the catagory menu on the left hand side looked untidy.
As of this weekend AffableAardvark is now as wide as your screen and all the product pictures are displayed with plenty of room inbetween.
Please see the main menu below;

The new Home office furniture has also been added today and can be reached by clicking on the furniture link and then home office.

205008.com Dusted and Optimised

The main office furniture site www.205008.com has been streamlined. Images now all have ALT text to comply with the new disability acts and over 200 pages have been checked for bad links and spelling mistakes.
We are often asked why 205008.com?
Our telephone number is 01752 205008 + who likes long e-mail addresses? we do not either so we just have sadie@205008.com etc.

The site has also been constructed to take advantage of the Broadband revolution so that, for example, the contract furniture ranges have thumbnail image links to much larger images for those with faster connections. Fast Food Canteen furniture link below.

The New Locker system

The Vedette specialised lockers are full-length units that incorporate
different internal arrangements to suit differing needs.

They include all the characteristics of the Vedette multi-compartment range
with some additional specialised features.

Divided VedetteA vertical partition within the
locker provides two separate hanging areas allowing soiled and clean
clothing to be segregated

Welled Vedette

The addition of a welled front allows the attachment of a seat. This
is achieved without the need for mounting the locker on a stand and is
therefore useful where there are height limitations to the room.

Vedette
The internal arrangement provides separate areas for
both hanging clothing and storing smaller items. This large unit
provides the user with optimum storage space.

Dust collection in the bottom of the well is overcome by the
inclusion of a special dust removal slot at the bottom of the locker.

Office Furniture Help

It’s the most influential purchase you will ever make. A poorly finished office
looks unprofessional, uninviting and creates a disharmonious and inefficient
workspace.

A well-planned and furnished office creates instant efficiency and visual
appeal. It says your company is forward thinking, successful and dynamic. It
also rewards your workforce with working areas that they feel happy to be in.

Personnel organisations quote employees seeking improved working conditions
as the second most common reason for workers changing jobs (next to improving
salary). That represents a big loss of talent and knowledge that could be easily
retained by companies improving the working environment.

Think of increased work rates, higher staff retention, customer loyalty and
improved credibility within your market and you can see why furniture is often
called the investment that makes money.

Stay legal:

There are comprehensive and complex Health & Safety laws controlling office
furniture. Many of the regulations are to be found in the Health & Safety at
Work

Act of 1974 with its various revisions since then.

All furniture products on
AffableAardvark.com
meet or exceed the requirements in the law, now and in
the foreseeable future. These include requirements on the sizes of desks, desk
finishes and reflective surfaces, stability and movement of chairs and
ergonomics as they relate to desks and chairs. They also comply with
requirements on the adjustability of chairs – backrests, tilts, seat heights and
other movements.

All furniture products on
AffableAardvark.com
are fully guaranteed and comply with the strict control
requirements we place on them.

Your workspace has never been more important to the smooth running efficiency
of the modern company.

Space itself has never been so expensive and so the pressure is on to invest
in new furniture that makes the very most of that space.

In addition, employees demand pleasant and effective working areas. Style is
crucial – the design-literate homeowners of today want to spend their working
days in an office space that reflects the eye appeal that has launched scores of
home makeover television programmes.

Our furniture has that style appeal. A variety of wood finishes like blonde
oak; warm beech and cool maple blend with silver and grey structures. The result
is a collection of desking and
storage that will transform any office space.

And the beauty does not detract from the strength of the product. Unlike
some, we never forget that the desks we supply could well be supporting
thousands of pounds worth of IT equipment. We put our desks and storage through
stress tests so that you don’t get stressed about your work environment.

Remember, adopting new working practices such as greater use of mobile units,
cluster team working, vertical storage and modern system storage can increase
productivity up to 41%. That means getting the right furniture solution makes
good financial sense.

Desking will be delivered flat packed and prices do not include installation
though we have teams of installers covering the UK should you require
installation.

Our stocking pledge:

We have direct access to Europe’s largest wholesale stock of office
furniture; handled and distributed by specialists in this field. It gives us,
and our customers, choice and value in the very best office furniture from the
world’s leading manufacturers.

Most furniture products are stocked and will be supplied on an express
(within 48 hours) service. Other products are called ‘Specials’ and are on a
longer lead-time.

Please note that because ‘Specials’ are made to order cancellations cannot be
accepted once the order has been made. Deliveries will be made within 2-4 weeks
depending upon the product.

Please contact AffableAardvark
