Innovation rewarded at Totally shows
Sponsored by DIY Week, the New Product Awards at the Totally shows, are designed to recognise innovation and highlight new and exciting products on show at the exhibition.

The products submitted to the New Product Showcase were judged by a strong panel of retail buyers, comprising Sarah Critchard of Axminster Tools, Mark Nixon of Right Price DIY, Paul Andrews from Home Hardware Southwest, David Dickens from JW Martin & Partners and Pritesh Pancholi of Melton Ironmongers.

Gold and Silver certificates were awarded across six categories, with newly-launched tool LadderLimb and The Solar Centre's Astron 64 solar security light - both winners at the recent DIY Week Awards - taking home Gold.

Awards were presented to suppliers by DIY Week editor Fiona Hodge at an exhibitors' drinks reception last night, following a successful first day of the show.

The full list of this year's Best New Products are:

Garden - Slug Gone by Vitax
DIY - Everbuild's Rendagrip
Tools - LadderLimb
Hardware - Youngman Group's Loft Ladder
Decorative - Samurai Paint's Canbrush
Security - The Solar Centre's Astron 64 solar security light

Silver winners in the awards included AW Tools' Papillon thorn protective glove in garden, Bagmate in the DIY category, The Solar Centre's Curve solar motion light and Yale's digital door viewer in security, and Polyseam's IPT building trade adhesive and sealant in the decorative category.
