Browsing the site
|The site has changed - how can I find my way around?|

How can I find the products I want?
|You can use the category navigation at the top of the page to browse by category. If you want to shop by manufacturer, you can use the Brands option on the main menu and find our most searched for brands within there. Alternatively, use our powerful keyword search which can be found to the left of the basket icon at the top right of the page and enter either a product code or text description of what you are searching for.|
Where can I find the product configurators and product selectors that used to be on the right hand side of the screen?
|These have now moved to our new Tools and Downloads section at the bottom of each page. You can click on "Tools" in the blue bar at the top of any page to jump to this section.|
Can I compare two or more products?
|You can compare up to four products at a time. From a product list page, click the "Compare" checkbox then click "Compare Selected Products"|
How do I save/view favourite products?
