Protect Your Wooden Garden Furniture: The Importance of Proper Wood Protection

As the warmer months approach, our gardens become the hub of outdoor activities, from barbecues to relaxing evenings. To ensure your wooden garden furniture remains in top condition year after year, it's essential to invest in quality wood protection products. Let's explore why proper protection is crucial and how the Barrettine and OSMO ranges can help.

Why Protect Your Wood?

1. Weather Resistance: Wooden furniture is constantly exposed to varying weather conditions. Rain, sun, and temperature changes can cause wood to warp, crack, and fade. Protective treatments shield your furniture from these elements, maintaining its structural integrity and appearance.

2. UV Protection: The sun's UV rays can be particularly damaging, causing wood to lose its natural colour and become brittle over time. UV protection products, like Barrettine Armourflex UV, prevent this deterioration, preserving the wood’s vibrancy.

3. Moisture Barrier: Moisture can lead to rot and fungal growth, significantly reducing the lifespan of your furniture. Using products from the Barrettine range creates a water-resistant barrier, preventing moisture from penetrating the wood.

4. Ease of Maintenance: Protected wood is easier to clean and maintain. Regular treatments with products like OSMO’s wood oils ensure your furniture stays smooth and splinter-free, enhancing its longevity and reducing the need for frequent repairs.

The Barrettine Range

Barrettine offers a variety of wood protection solutions tailored to different needs. The Armourflex UV Ultimate Protection, for instance, is designed for maximum UV resistance, making it perfect for outdoor furniture. It’s easy to apply and eco-friendly, ensuring your furniture looks great while being kind to the environment.

The OSMO Range

OSMO products are known for their natural finishes and durable protection. Their wood oils penetrate deeply, nourishing the wood from within while providing a robust exterior layer. This dual action not only enhances the wood’s natural beauty but also offers exceptional protection against weathering and wear.

Application Tips

  1. Clean the Surface: Before applying any product, ensure the wood is clean and dry.
  2. Follow Instructions: Each product has specific application guidelines. Following these ensures optimal protection.
  3. Regular Maintenance: Reapply protective treatments as recommended, typically every one to two years, depending on exposure.


Investing in high-quality wood protection products like the Barrettine and OSMO ranges is essential for preserving your wooden garden furniture. Not only do these products protect against the elements, but they also enhance the natural beauty and longevity of your furniture, ensuring you can enjoy your outdoor space for years to come.
