Accoya® is wood, but not as you know it. It is modified timber in which a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology, enables it to resist rot, defy the elements and stay strong for decades. Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years in ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable.
Accoya® wood is the material of choice for window frames and doors. Not only does it have extremely low thermal conductivity but it is more durable and dimensionally stable than the best tropical hardwoods. It can be opaque coated or, for those wishing to enjoy the natural look of wood, transparent coated. Accoya®’s low maintenance requirements add to its cost effectiveness and environmental credentials.
Exterior doors should be durable, dimensionally stable (to prevent doors becoming difficult to open and close in bad weather) and easy to maintain. Accoya® wood meets these criteria and may be used to create simple or complex designs with a choice of finishes.
