Why Choose Accoya?

Accoya wood

What is it?

Accoya wood is produced from sustainably sourced, fast growing wood using a non-toxic modification process from the surface to the core.  The result is a durable, stable, reliable and beautiful solid wood with the performance characteristics of the most durable tropical hardwoods but offering very valuable environmental credentials.  Accoya can be used to produce beautiful, custom-made joinery products, such as windows and doors, that are low maintenance, highly stable and can be expected to match or even exceed the performance durable hardwoods such as oak, teak, iroko and sapele……..

Ten good reasons to choose Accoya:

1.Durable – your joinery will stand the test of time and not require replacement for a least 60 years.

2.Beautiful natural product which can be recoated, repaired or recycled at the end of its useful life.

3.Stable –  windows and doors will be resistant to swelling or shrinkage

4.Low maintenance – factory coated products are guaranteed for 10 years.

5.Sustainable – by enhancing the durability and stability of a fast growing, abundantly available timber, Accoya has a significant environmental advantage over slow growing hardwoods which are often limited in their sustainable supply.

6.Non-toxic – the acetylation process used to alter the molecular structure of the timber to create Accoya is non toxic unlike other preparations and processes used to preserve hardwoods and softwoods.

7.100% recyclable

8.Naturally insulating – significantly improved thermal insulation qualities over most hardwoods.

9.Versatile – it can be opaque, transculent or transparent coated with water based finishes which can last up to three times longer.

10.Tried and tested – Accoya has been tested over prolonged periods in all types of weathering conditions – above ground, below ground and even in water.
