FEATURES & BENEFITS
Accoya wood is suited to traditional, high quality joinery workshops which have been used successfully in the UK and beyond since Accoya production started in 2007. Project highlights include; windows for the German Embassy, Washington DC, facades at Louis Vuitton stores in North and South America, velodrome decks around the world from China to North Africa to the Netherlands and multiple homes in the Grand Designs TV series.
Accoya was chosen in these projects because it works. It is ideal for the production of bespoke, classic or comtemporary wooden windows and doors by joinery factories and workshops across the UK.
Accoya wood windows and doors are guaranteed to last for 50 years. Accoya has been tested in extreme conditions around the world, without any coatings, for decades. These exposures, alongside the most durable hardwoods demonstrate rot and decay resistance exceeding nature’s most durable timbers, including teak.
Because we modify and strengthen our wood’s natural qualities, Accoya is able to eliminate the unpredictable and offer consistent quality.
Accoya wood windows and doors retain their form come rain or shine. Whatever the weather does, it won’t warp or noticeably swell, like other wooden windows and doors. Accoya doors and windows fit perfectly all year round, opening and closing effortlessly year after year after year.
When we modify our wood, we eliminate natural shortcomings. As a result, Accoya windows and doors require very little maintenance.
The form stability and reduced swelling of Accoya doors and windows removes the stress on paint finishes. They last 2x longer on Accoya than traditional wood. If there is a break in the paint film which goes unnoticed for an extended period, your Accoya windows or doors will not rot.
Although our process augments the durability and performance of wood, it leaves its beautiful organic appearance completely untouched. But if it’s not a natural wood finish you are after, Accoya windows and doors can easily be painted to suit your home.
The design possibilities go beyond adding colour with coatings. Because our wood is easy to cut and machine, your joiner can tailor the shape and finish of your windows and doors, making them totally your own.
In the process of Accoya production, it attains a better insulation value. Thermal values are 40% better than hardwood.
Energy conservation is just another way Accoya windows and doors deliver greater performance over their lifetime.
Accoya is 100% non-toxic and made with FSC® timber. The product has an overall Gold Cradle to Cradle standard and is rated platinum in the Cradle to Cradle material health category.
