What Is Accoya Wood?
Accoya is a wood product that has been made more powerful than any other wood on the market. Anyone who has built with wood knows that rot and deterioration are possible. Certain woods are not very strong, and you must be careful because these woods are impacted by the weather in different ways. Accoya fixes all those problems for you because it stands strong in all situations.
Our Accoya Wood Windows
One of our most popular Accoya joinery product is our Accoya wood windows, made from the reinforced engineered Accoya branded materials, that not only look pristine but have a fantastic guarantee unlike any other type of wood. Sustainable, ethical and reliable, they are a go-to choice for the ethical buyer and those looking for a quality investment that will last and enhance their home for many years to come.
The wood is guaranteed for 50 years when used above ground, and it is guaranteed for 25 years when used underground or in freshwater, however has the capability to last much longer. Being engineered wood, it does not rot or become damaged by the elements as usual wood does, and you cannot find a guarantee like this with any other wood product. Most companies expect wood to deteriorate after a much shorter period of time, but Accoya wood gives you decades of security because of the way it is crafted and formed.
Where Did It Come From?
Accoya wood has been around for quite a long time, but it was not mass produced until 2007 when the engineering technology caught up with the power of this wood. It became available to all builders, and it brought with it an amazing guarantee for durability and strength. It is strong enough to be used in everything from architectural structuring for homes and commercial buildings as well as other uses such as decking, doors and casements, and its reputation is growing exponentially in the industry.
A Sustainable Wood Solution
The acetylation process is used to help keep the wood strong and protected. Wood particles that would have come under the influence of water are replaced with acetyl (part of a molecule derived from carboxylic acid), and the wood cannot rot because water cannot penetrate it. The company has a C2C Gold certificate that makes them one of the most sustainable companies in the world, and they have managed to create a wood product that can be stained or painted just like any other wood. It can be recycled or upcycled depending on what the user wants to do, and it will stand the test of time due to the acetylation process.
Accoya has become the gold standard in builder’s wood because it lasts longer than anything else and is one of our most popular wood products for a number of our joinery products. Their 50-year above ground guarantee will change the way those in our industry work, and you can now even build your dream home out of this wood to ensure that your great grandchildren will be able to enjoy it someday too!
The revolution of Accoya engineered wood and their innovative way to treat wood is set to bring joinery and woodwork back into the 21st Century with a force, making it now one of the most sustainable choices for your home, but also a functional, practical and modern investment.
