Following hot on the heels of its new brochure, David Bailey Furniture Systems Ltd, UK market leading manufacturer and supplier of fitted furniture to the healthcare market, has launched its new website. This includes an interactive page offering a choice of product colour combinations and a CAD download facility of products, from wall units to work tops. Other facilities include the opportunity to keep abreast of all the company’s latest news and developments.
The interactive section itself allows specifiers to try out many different colour combinations of doors, worktops and handles that are available within the range. This helps users pick the ideal blend of background and furniture colours for their ward or room specification.
www.dbfshealth.wpengine.com also provides architects and specifiers with a full computer aided design (CAD) download facility, which complements the company’s existing CAD CD-Rom. This offers more choice and flexibility when specifications for the hospital and healthcare environment are being prepared.
The time-saving FastrackCAD facility can be used within most CAD systems, including AutoCAD. It enables the user to incorporate items from the David Bailey Healthline and HTM 63 furniture ranges at the early design stages of a project, be it new build or refurbishment. Drawings are available from the website in front, left side or top elevations.
For web users, preview drawings are available for viewing prior to downloading the image. David Bailey Furniture Systems’ own product ordering codes have been incorporated alongside each drawing to save time at the specification and ordering stage of the project.
Richard Roberts, associate architect at Nexus Frankham Ltd, was the first industry professional to view the new site as it went online and commented: “I am very impressed with the David Bailey website. The interactive section is most useful and you create an impression of the proposed installation with just a few clicks of the mouse. Being able to change the wall colour is a useful feature because it allows you to visualise different environments. Having the CAD download facility online is great too – it’s both easy and logical to use. I look forward to using it for future specifications and I will be recommending it to my colleagues.”
Extensive product information, the latest company news, a list of online suppliers to the healthcare industry and the opportunity to order a brochure are available on the website. A CAD helpline service is also available, which means that users experiencing any online difficulties, such as downloading or integrating the drawings, can simply pick up the phone to receive free and immediate help and advice.
