1. Graphical structure of site
Four clearly-structured page areas with a variety of content
As shown in the graphic, our Web pages are divided into four distinct areas with a traditional structure. Starting with the header bar and continuing through to the footer, these areas contain all of the elements you need to navigate our Website. Our exceptional page navigation column (see 1.3) allows you to navigate quickly through the various sub-menus.
1.1 Header bar
In addition to the top-level navigation bar - which you use to navigate to the various content sections at a click of the mouse - the header bar also contains the news ticker. Our news ticker constantly supplies you with the most up-to-date information on Murtfeldt. You can also log in here to enter our password-protected area. The language selection function is also located here, on the same level as the top-level navigation bar and log-in function.
1.2 Content area
The content area is used to provide you with all relevant information on our company and products. It encompasses the left-hand and central column and can contain text, images, graphics, forms, and information that is highlighted in colour. On some pages, important information is also offered for download in the form of PDF files.
1.3 Page navigation column
The page navigation column is a high-level screen area that relates to the content areas. It is located on the far right of the screen and contains useful functional elements. These elements provide users with information and help them to find their way around the current page or to navigate to a related page.
1.4 Footer bar
The footer bar at the end of each page also contains various functions. It allows users to jump back to the top of the page or navigate to the home page or 'Contact us' area and contains a link to the site map, which gives you an overview of the content of this Website. In addition, the footer bar contains links to our general terms and conditions and imprint.
2. Content structure of site
All relevant information in two main sections
These two sections provide information on two of the most important topics on this site: The company and its products.
The main aim is to give the user an overview of everything he or she needs to know so that specific information can be called up quickly and easily. These sections contain all relevant data and information on the company, ranging from the history of the company from its foundation through to detailed descriptions of product features.
2.1 Company area
The company area incorporates the 'News', 'Company', 'Services', 'Press', and 'Contact us' pages. It provides information on all important topics relating to Murtfeldt GmbH & Co. KG. In addition to info content on our company, this area also contains current reports on plastic, various functions for contacting us, and a wide range of service offerings such as press releases and printable image material for download.
2.2 Products area
We use the 'Products' area to present all Murtfeldt products in detail, describing their characteristic properties using our own product pictograms. Like in our 'Solutions in plastics' catalogue, the pictograms contain the article numbers, dimensions, sizes, variants, and properties of all standard products. You can also find information on custom options and the best choice of material here.
Our four different product categories:
- MATERIALS (grey)
- CHAIN, BELT, AND SLIDING GUIDES (brown)
- TENSIONING SYSTEMS (blue)
- LUBRICATION SYSTEMS (beige)
The product categories are distinguished by the colours indicated in the brackets. The colour coding is used to indicate which pages belong to each category, thus helping you to find the information you need.
3. The page navigation column
3.1 The memo board
The memo board is a digital notepad. You can use it to record anything you find important. You can send us an inquiry on the articles you have noted down on your memo board and can collect files for download there. Users who are logged on can save the content of their memo board to their profile for use later on. The page navigation column provides a preview of articles and downloads you have added to your memo board. This means that nothing gets lost and you can read your notes again at a later point in time.
3.2 The product search function
The search function allows you to search by article number. If you enter a complete and correct article number and then start the search, the system finds the article that matches your search string. You are taken automatically to the page on the product in question. This page contains a product description, list of all variants, all further product articles, and all downloads about the product in question. This function allows you to easily find whichever article you're looking for.
3.3 Additional information and tips
The page navigation column also contains important contextual information and tips. They help you to find your way around the site. Relevant information on the page content is displayed here so that you can see it at a glance.
3.4 Useful help texts
Help texts make it easier for you to use the information we provide. They contain explanations on various topics such as the prerequisites for downloading a PDF file.
