ACCOYA TIMBER – THE FUTURE OF WOOD
Joinery For All Seasons proudly uses Accoya Timber as material for our doors and windows. Accoya wood offers the best characteristics of tropical hardwoods but is far more sustainably sourced. Accoya wood can be used for practically anything from doors to windows, decking to cladding and for applications sourced from non-sustainable and man-made materials.
Accoya wood has been proven to withstand and retain its appearance under the toughest environments and conditions. This gives greater reassurance to both manufacturers and homeowners like you, who choose Accoya for upcoming home projects.
Its three main advantages are DURABILITY, DIMENSIONAL STABILITY and SUSTAINABILITY.
Accoya can last up to 50 years, boasting Class 1 durability and exceeding even teak. It’s virtually rot-proof, giving you years of high performance and reliable operation.
Swelling and shrinkage in Accoya are reduced by 75% or more. Doors and windows operate seamlessly year round, requiring little or no maintenance, which means reduced maintenance costs.
Accoya is manufactured from sustainably sourced wood. With greater durability and dimensional stability, Accoya is far more environmentally advantageous than woods treated with toxic chemicals and non-renewable materials such as concrete and plastic.
Perfect for Coating
Accoya wood’s enhanced stability means coating can last two times longer than other materials. It is easier to coat and requires less preparation and sanding.
Accoya wood maintains its natural colour after acetylation, the ‘gold standard’ across methods, and a process by which Accoya is produced. This serves to illustrate that the wood’s natural beauty persists in exposed conditions.
TRIED AND TESTED
Accoya has been tested for characteristics such as durability and dimensional stability and paint retention to ensure optimal performance. Indeed, it has proven reliable through the years and continues to be considered the benchmark for other treatments and techniques.
At Joinery For All Seasons, we are proud to use Accoya wood across various projects. If you want to know more about our application of Accoya wood, feel free to speak to us today.
