Accoya – The ideal wood for windows, doors, cladding, decking, structural products and more.

Accoya is essentially the future, ticking all the boxes for sustainability, the environment, performance, visual appearance and longevity. The timber Accoya is based upon acetylated wood technology, a process that has been studied by scientists around the world for more than 75 years and has produced some astonishing results and modern day benefits to construction work. This method of improving wood has been proven to deliver such superior performance that it has long been used as the “gold standard” against which other methods are measured.

What are the Benefits for Garage Doors?

The stability of Accoya timber will increase the lifespan of all external joinery products.

Typically, expect hardwood products to last for about 50 years in external service with proper maintenance adhered to. Accoya should add a further ten years to this service life.

The hard and consistent structure produces a much finer finish after sanding, and the lack of absorption of water from the paint mean that the final finish quality is better than for hardwood. An even greater finish is possible by using undergoing a grain fill process prior to painting. The hardness of the timber makes it less susceptible to denting or damage, and therefore increases the likelihood of maintaining the paint coating in the long-term.

This of course improves the longevity of the products. This timber can be grown in 25 years, but will last 60 years in application – this makes it a net absorber of CO2 and an incredibly green building material.

For window frames, Accoya wood is the material of choice. Not only does it have extremely low thermal conductivity but it matches or exceeds the durability and dimensionally stability of the best tropical hardwoods available. It can be opaque coated in a wide range of colours, or for those wishing to enjoy the natural look of timber, translucent coated. Accoya’s low maintenance requirements add to its cost effectiveness and environmental acceptance.

Exterior timber doors should always be durable, dimensionally stable, to prevent doors potentially jamming and becoming difficult to open and close in bad weather and changes in air moisture content from season to season. It should also be easy to maintain. Accoya timber meets all these criteria and may be used to create simple or complex designs with a choice of coating finishes with greatly improved lifetime stability.

Accoya is a perfect solution for exterior cladding, siding and façades where aesthetics, less maintenance, dimensional stability, durability and insulation value are always key factors. It is also crucial that the wood is non-toxic and therefore totally safe for people and pets. Accoya timber again meets these requirements. Accoya timber has been modified right through to the core and the acetylation process does not weaken the original wood – in fact, its hardness is improved but neither does it compromise its bending strength.

Combined with exceptional durability and stability Accoya timber can be an ideal material for structural requirements and has been used in bridges and other large structures around the world.
