Sadolin First Dates

Sadolin has helped transform a pub, taken over by TV personality Merlin Griffiths, into a stunning venue in the East Midlands.

A range of supreme woodcare solutions have helped rejuvenate The Maltsters Country Inn, in Badby, Daventry, which was in a sorry state before Merlin, bartender and owner of Greenhouse Pubs, took it over earlier in the year.

To aid the restoration project, he turned to Sadolin PV67 Heavy Duty Varnish and Sadolin Superdec, after hearing glowing reports about the products.

However, it is isn’t the first time he has used the products; having used them at another pub he owns in Kilburn, London.

Merlin commented: “I was recommended Sadolin PV67 by a flooring expert.

“When we were creating a boat deck finish on the floor in the Kilburn pub, he told me that I should use the product on my bar top too.

“The flooring expert said that he had used it in a famous gallery and I thought that was a pretty good recommendation and he was right.

“I’ve used it here on the bar top at The Maltsters and it’s dried crystal clear and rock hard, which is excellent.”

Available in both a gloss and satin finish, Sadolin PV67 Heavy Duty Varnish comes as a two-pack system and is synonymous for ease of application and its spectacular, long-lasting finish.

The leisure and hospitality industry will find the product particularly crucial, as its resistance to chemicals enables the product to cope with alcohol and soft drinks’ spills.

The hard-wearing formulation is also slip and scratch resistant and, as well as bar tops, it is the ideal product for busy areas such as dance floors and hallways.

As well as Sadolin PV67, Merlin chose Sadolin Superdec to give long-lasting protection to the windows of the 17th century building.

This was on the advice of a customer, a bespoke kitchen maker, who had seen the product demonstrated at a trade show.

It is available in more than 300 shades and is renowned for its comprehensive colour palette and outstanding protective qualities.

Merlin said: “I was told by the customer about a product demonstration he’d been to where a rubber glove was dipped in to Sadolin Superdec and how, when the product had dried, they blew it up and you could see the product expanding and contracting.

“It’s this ability which gives Sadolin Superdec up to 10 years’ protection against the elements and that’s invaluable when you’ve got old windows like we have at The Maltsters and you’re not thinking about replacing them.”

Reflecting on the successful project, Merlin added: “Now the work is done, I can trust the finish on the bar top and trust the finish on the windows.

“I can finally have some people resting their pints on a nice bar top, looking out of some freshly decorated windows at the great views.”
