The Oldfields Points of Difference
Capability – Productivity and Finish
Oldfields brushes have exceptional pick-up so there’s less time reloading, the filaments are custom designed to work with the latest paint technology and the balanced, crafted, wooden handles fit the hand for comfort, control and exceptional grip.
• Brushes – Pick up, put down and release
Oldfields product development team work with industry specialists and painting professionals to develop and thoroughly test all brushes before they hit the shelf.
They thrash the filaments, push the boundaries of master brush making skills and only signoff on the R&D when an exceptional solution is found. That’s why their highly refined synthetic filament mirrors how a natural fibre picks up and releases paint. It’s had thousands of hours of field trials, analysis and stress testing and when it’s in the painter’s hand it’s nothing short of a master stroke.
• Fabric & Filament – the science is in the small things, executed with precision.
The Oldfields advanced microfibre fabric is low splatter, free of lint and features three NAP lengths to perfectly suit the job at hand.
Roller sleeve technology requires perfection to provide the ultimate performance. Oldfields has very specific construction standards to consistently produce roller sleeves that perform to the highest standards and deliver the quality of finish that true professionals demand.
• Feel in the hand and control – it’s all about the painter
Painting all day is hard work. Fatigue is a factor; a painter needs to be able to perform to a consistently high stand. The efficiency, feel and perfect balance in a brush or roller is critical.
• Tools – General

Sourcing – this is a critical point. The key supply chain partners are well established and have been with Oldfields for many years.

Quality and testing – painters in multiple channels do the testing (Commercial, New Housing, Domestic).
All testing is undertaken by external painters working on real projects across all channels and environments that the tools are likely to be used in. The feedback is factual, cut to the chase and no nonsense. The painters know they’re influencing the next generation of tools and they take an enormous amount of pride in their assessment and feedback. Oldfields counts on them to call it as they see it and the painters count on the Oldfields development team to listen, adapt and implement.
