All products have been test marketed in Bents, Ruxley Manor and Alton Garden Centre, results were very good and all said yes they would like to continue to sell the Golden Care range.

Golden Care

Sales continue to grow for our Golden Care range of garden furniture and outdoor product maintenance. Tested in three of the UK's most prominent Garden Centres last season, the entire range came up trumps, confirming our judgement on the saleability of this high end product. Golden Care was launched at Glee and to date we have been amazed at the up take and sales. The tailor-made point of sale stands makes it easy for the consumer to select the right care product for outdoor furniture be it Teak, Hardwood or Aluminium. Eco friendly and easy to use, these products are just flying off the shelves.

The Golden Care Range of products covers the entire range of cleaning, restoration and protection for outdoor furniture, barbeques and other accessories. In addition and very importantly they are 100% water based, contain no solvents, are non-toxic, non-corrosive and 100% biodegradable, (unlike the greater percentage of competitor products).

There are six products in the teak range plus a three in one kit; eighteen in the aluminium, steel, hardstone, glass, resin and wovens range three in the decking and fence range and three in the BBQ range.

The teak and hardwood range

Bringing teak back to life after years of ill treatment and neglect might seem like an impossible job, but Golden Care has a range of products perfectly placed to do just that. Their teak cleaner, which also comes with the correct application sponge, brilliantly restores discoloured and dark grey teak and hardwoods, bringing back the original look. To retain that look use it's companion, the Golden Care teak protector for a finish that lasts up to four times longer than other proprietary protectors. As a gift item these are available as a three in one kit, including application tools. Teak is most often known for it's grey weathered look, using the Golden Care patinizer wood achieves a measured patinization without black spots, green patches or any other discolouration. To achieve an even lighter finish there is a specific whitener which takes the teak to a silvery grey / white colour, slows the effects of weathering and prevents green or black spots. For the ultimate in protection against wine stains, grease, coffee etc use the teak shield, it impregnates the wood and gives an almost invisible shield, it is also very suitable for indoor wooden furniture. For hard woods of a much redder or darker colour the hardwood protector brings out and maintains a naturally darker, redder colour for longer. All of the other products can also be used on these hardwoods.

The casual furniture range

For anodised aluminium Golden Care has restorer, to restore weathering and oxidisation, polisher, to take corroded surfaces back to it's original state and protector to maintain the original shine and look of anodised aluminium for longer. For powder coated and cast aluminium there is a cleaner and wax polisher, which removes all the grime and then protects the finish and for stainless steel there is a cleaner, a polisher and a combined two in one product. For Textilene and wovens there are specific cleaners and other fabrics benefit from dedicated cleaners and protectors. Hardstone, glass and resin also have their own cleaners, protectors and polishes.

Next come the decking and fence products, there is a complete range including cleaner, protector and patinizer that can be used on any hard wood. Old decking and fencing can be brought back to life and made to look as good as new, to either the original colour of the wood or a patinized grey.

Last but not least a range of products for cleaning, degreasing and polishing barbecues, also available as a three in one kit for gift and easy storage.

To show these products off to best effect the Golden Care range can be displayed in a hardwood merchandising unit which incorporates a t.v. screen and dvd player for playing the instructional DVD, an invaluable way to get the message across to the customer.
