    There's nothing much wrong with the pictures themselves, a few lack deffinition (such as Fire Extinguishers etc..) but that's a problem with converting to gif. Possibly they need to be rescanned and try something like .png instead of .gif though it'll probably not make much difference.

    Also the images are a little nondescript, though I'm not speaking from knowledge about pipes and fittings. I'm sure anyone who knows anything about the stuff wont be too bothered about a large image of an associated product rather than actual information.

    I also think that the images are a little slow to load, after the bulk of the text and other graphics, especially for what is essentially decoration. Possibly a reduction in size would help to drop the file size and the loading time, this may detract from the site but I think the images are too large vertically anyway.

    Also, there are places where you're using images for text, not a great idea. Why not just use CSS to describe the text style, saving download and rendering time?
