Schlage Unveils Interactive Consumer Website

CARMEL, IN (INGERSOLL RAND NEWS SERVICE) -- Consumers who visit Schlage’s newly revamped residential website enter into a friendly, interactive environment that makes it easier than ever to find security products that best meet their needs in terms of function and style. There’s even a prominent “pronunciation box” (with audio!) for those who were never quite sure how to pronounce Schlage – it’s Shh-leg in case you were wondering.

Visitors are greeted by an interactive Flash menu offering links to a design center, installation tips and home management options, including the popular Schlage LiNK system. The homepage also provides easy access to the latest product news and a place to sign up for Schlage’s quarterly newsletter.

The design center provides tips on how to choose product features and functions that best fit the consumer's lifestyle. It also includes a unique “style selector” so visitors can visualize how Schlage hardware will look on doors of different styles and colors and in different rooms. Users simply select the room, décor style, door color and scroll through the available finishes to see which ones they like best.

For those who want to spend a little time pondering the latest home security options before making a decision, there’s a handy shopping list feature that lets them quickly view and print the list of products they’re considering. Sharing product information is easy, too, thanks to the Share and Print buttons found at the top of every product page. When they’re ready to make the purchase, finding the nearest Schlage retailer is a snap – just enter a zip code into the Where to Buy box.

The new website also features expanded installation guides and FAQs for those who need help with installation, as well as phone numbers for those who prefer to speak with a customer service representative. For the pros, Schlage has expanded the information for builders and trade professionals, making it easier to find relevant information for their business.
