Aico launches new Web site

Keywords Fire safety, Alarms, WWW

Aico Ltd, one of the UK's leading electrical distributors, has just unveiled its new Web site aimed at wholesalers, specifiers, installers and contractors.

The exclusive distributor for market-leading smoke alarm manufacturer El Professional, Aico is also a leading name in carbon monoxide detection, ceramic infra-red heating and lighting through its Davis and Aspect ranges. The company also offers tools for the electrician.

Aico's complete and very extensive product range is featured on the site, arranged by category. A search engine facility allows the quick pinpointing of specific products. New products are clearly highlighted if you want to know the latest developments in lighting or fire detection, for example.

Aico only sells through wholesalers, so there's a guide to your nearest Aico stockist. However, there is a useful "quotation basket" feature so that you can quickly and simply price a project using Aico equipment. It is also possible to contact Aico direct from the site by e-mail, talking either to the sales division or to the technical division which offers free advice on fire detection, CO monitoring, lighting and infra-red heating.

Professionals looking for technical advice will find the Aico site a valuable resource. It has also been designed to serve as a useful reference source for specifiers, contractors and installers looking for information on relevant standards and good practice. There are detailed FAQ pages on fire detection, carbon monoxide detection and ceramic infra-red heating, as well as detailed information on installation and user instructions.

"We hope that wholesalers will also find this facility helpful," says Marketing Director Graham Ingram, "not just for its product details but also for the technical support information. By going online and visiting the site, they will be able to answer many customers questions on even very technical matters.

"Any wholesalers not currently using us can find the full contact details for their local sales representative on the site, listed by county."
