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.

Smoking Shelters are very popular

Smoking Shelters
(Installation now available)

Legislation and a new code of practice are expected to implement a total ban on smoking in the workplace. In a large number of organisations that have a no smoking policy, employees who do smoke tend to find themselves relegated to smoking ‘off site’. This is often at the front of buildings and around entrances and exits. Unsightly discarded smoker’s litter is usually the result, with people huddled together against the elements. These smoking shelters enable employers to provide a designated smoking environment in a protected and controlled area, away from the main corporate entrance or exit.

The design of these smoking shelters enables easy access and egress. Open areas at the base and below the roof line allows for the rapid dispersal of cigarette fumes for the smokers comfort. The photograph below shows a shelter with the optional decorated steel rear panel. Site surveys and Installation service is also available. Please note the new Curvy model at the bottom of the page.

Line Marking Tape

I met an old friend this morning Andy Dean he works for Ian Williams the maintenance and facilities management company. He had called to collect some traffic products we had supplied namely white line tape. I have listed the details below as Andy thought that the product was fantastic and, as I don’t often meet with the customers now days it was great to meet someone I have known for nearly 15 years, and get a glowing recommendation for a product we supply. If you have any views on any of our products (Good or Bad) please let me know and I will post them here so that everyone can benefit. I have added a link to the Manufacturers brochure and we will offer 20% discount off the prices to all customers that mention seeing this Blog!

Trying out the Seating and Chairs

It is very difficult trying to imagine how a chair will feel from the picture. Going by the number of orders we get it does not bother a lot of people. If you would like to try before you buy then please read more.
This year we opened our seating showroom in Devon. With Two more showrooms in Central London, another in Reigate, Surrey, we can cover the South of the country quite well. For our customers in the North we have a showroom in Liverpool with another in Glasgow opening soon.
Please contact us if there is a specific model you wish to see and we will try and find a facility nearby.
