Using Hidden Simple Associated Child Product’s Attributes in Filtered Navigation

Our store sells products that are a part of product families.

Example:

LED Light 1 (grouped)
-RED, 12”, 5° (simple, hidden from catalog,search)
-GREEN, 24”, 15° (simple, hidden from catalog,search)
-BLUE, 48”, 8° (simple, hidden from catalog,search)

I have grouped products with simple products associated to them. I don’t want to show the simple associated products in the catalog or search however I do want to use their attributes in the filtered navigation that would all point to the grouped or parent product. The same grouped or parent product will show up as the user filters down.

Can I use hidden simple associated products’ attributes in filtered navigation while only displaying the grouped or parent product in the filtered navigation results?

I’m new to Magento, but I haven’t found any articles addressing this.

I’m open to suggestions or maybe a better solution to my problem.

Thank you!

We have an extension that provides filters on child attributes, we also have a separate extension for the same which works with standard search and solr allowing search by child attributes but returns the parent product.
