Why Accoya?

Accoya® turns everything you know about wood on its head. Through a revolutionary scientific process called acetylation, it modifies wood to give it properties above and beyond the very best hardwoods – and in many cases, aluminium and PVC.

Since its launch in 2007, Accoya has been selected by hundreds of manufacturers as their wood of choice and used on architecturally significant projects from around the world. But perhaps its most exciting application is in everyday homes, where it brings new possibilities for windows, doors, decking and cladding.

The benefits of Accoya mean that timber projects can now be designed with absolute confidence. Our quality mark signals the Accoya difference.

Performance Benefits

Accoya brings unprecedented reliability for timber; it is checked and trusted not to visibly swell, shrink or distort, with minimal movement. Highly durable, it withstands the test of any climate and is a highly rot resistant wood. And what’s more, it stays that way – a 50 year above ground, and 25 year below ground and freshwater warranty are testament to the fact that you can expect to enjoy your Accoya wood for many decades to come.

PERFORMANCE encapsulates all the properties of Accoya which make it such a great choice for external applications, no matter the environment. It means it competes not just with hardwoods for endurance, but also other materials such as PVC and aluminium.

FINISH sums up all the reasons designers and manufacturers love working with Accoya – its flexibility in natural and coated finishes makes Accoya ideal for a variety of applications.

SUSTAINABILITY is at the heart of Accoya – its credentials are world-beating. From source, to production and through the end of life, sustainability shines through.
