Calorique, a Massachusetts radiant heat systems manufacturer, has launched a new website. The website features radiant heat products for floors, ceiling and roofs. The new site also provides technical information, data sheets and installation instructions for radiant heat products.

“Our goal in developing the new website experience is to provide current and prospective users and distributors an additional access point and online resource to learn more about Caloriques’ products and solutions,” says Eugene McGillycuddy, Calorique president. “The website, however, is not a substitute for our hands-on customer service commitment and radiant heat film expertise that we offer all of clients, dealers and prospects searching for solutions,” McGillycuddy states.

The site features improved navigation and search capabilities to make it quick for dealers to find the appropriate product or application information. The website also features how to videos, product videos and technical information.

“We are excited about the launch of the site and look forward to providing service to our clients and dealers in the industry”, McGillycuddy says.
