From your insight, we've improved our site

From your insight, we've improved our site
Based on what you have been telling us about your online experience at Rapid, we have just released the latest version of our desktop website. Featuring significant improvements to search, navigation and design, it is fully focused on your needs as a customer.

Take a look at what's changed below.


We have made further design and technical improvements to our search facility. You will notice that the way you filter search results has changed. A wider range of attributes are available. You can also enter Rapid order codes without a hyphen and still find the right product!

  • More attributes to choose from
  • From/To ranges within each filter
  • Filtered results can be scrolled under ‘sticky’ attribute headings
  • Category matches shown with product images


Product Information, Data Sheets, Technical Details, Accessories, Questions and Reviews are now available in a tabular format on product pages. We think this is a better way of displaying pages with a large amount of content. It reduces page scrolling and means you are less likely to miss key information.


We have simplified how you navigate to the product categories. Rather than a horizontal list of the main categories, the categories are now accessible from a single link at the left hand end of the top navigation bar.

  • Menu categories cascade down
  • Easier access to other links in main navigation bar - New Products, Special Offers, Clearance, Brands, Publications, Quotations, Contact Us

Help us to improve by telling us what you think of these changes and what you think we could still do better.
