SADOLIN - Wood Protection - As Easy As Child’s Play With Sadolin

Sadolin products are helping to deliver long-term protection and inspired colour choices for a successful British company that fires children’s imaginations with its designs in wood.

More than 20 years ago, Richard Frost and his wife Kay founded The Playhouse Company, based in Hereford, which builds include high quality play houses, ‘castles,’ tree houses and activity centres sold across the UK and mainland Europe.

To maintain the highest standards of finish and long term weather protection, The Playhouse Company’s finished products are all decorated using Sadolin Superdec Opaque Wood Protection, or where a translucent finish is required, Sadolin Classic.

Richard said: “We simply don’t use any other decorative woodcare products at all in the factory.

“It’s important to us that we offer the maximum choice, and Sadolin has a fabulous range of opaque Superdec and translucent Classic shades for our customers to choose from.”

The playhouses are built from Scandinavian Redwood, sourced from fully accredited FSC suppliers. An initial coat of knotting solution is applied to the timber followed by two coats of either Sadolin Superdec or Sadolin Classic. With contrasting colours being used on adjacent panels, each element is painted separately in the factory, leaving the assembly work to be done in the customer’s garden.

Richard and his team of 16 employees know that with Sadolin they’re using high quality, hard-wearing products because they occasionally get to see their playhouses many years after they’ve been installed, when the refurbishment service is used. This usually happens because customers are moving house and want to take their treasured castle or cottage with them.

The service includes bringing the playhouse back to the factory, redecorating it and erecting it again in the customer’s new garden.

Richard added: “We personally get to see how well Sadolin stands the test of time which gives us even more confidence in using the products.”

The Frost family isn’t only involved in the children’s play sector. Richard and Kay have been joined by Richard’s brother, Tom, and together they have found a new outlet for their expertise, starting the ‘The Posh Shed Company,’ which offers range of high quality exclusive garden designs – for grown-ups this time.

Once again, they use Sadolin Superdec and Sadolin Classic to protect all the timber they use, all supplied by Hereford Crown Decorating Centre.
