Burley Fires – Speed Optimisation

Web Juice were approached by Burley Appliances Ltd to refresh their, then, current site built a number of years ago with a refreshed design. Burley Appliances Ltd are manufacturers of gas and wood burning fireplaces and stoves since 1975 and supply into a vast amount of stockists across the UK and the world. The old website was built using a standard html file system meaning their was no Content Management System (CMS) behind the website.  This increased the amount of developer hours required to edit even the slightest bit of text on the website as well as a delay in changes being implemented. Web Juice recommended replacing the old system with a WordPress based solution allowing every element of the site to be easily managed by the client themselves. During the rebuild process we also gave the design a slight refresh and improvement as general consesus within the clients organisation that the website ultimately looked Okay but could be improved. The site was given a fresh lease of life on the WordPress platform utilising the WooCommerce ecommerce managment system to easily categorise and list the products they sell through their stockists, Whilst the design was only a move on from their previous design it better utilises space and colour than the previous version as you can see below

The site was given a mobile responsive design based on the Bootstrap grid system to make it easy to navigate and view across all devices.
