The Benefits of using Accoya
Accoya® wood is a high performance wood. Created from sustainably-sourced wood, Accoya® wood undergoes a proprietary, acetylation process that permanently modifies the wood to the core. The result: an environmentally friendly solid wood with durability, dimensional stability and beauty that matches or exceeds even the best tropical hardwood.
Accoya® wood is sourced from sustainable sources, including FSC and has class leading environmental credentials such as Cradle to Cradle™ Gold certification by the highly prestigious McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) organization.
Accoya® wood is perfect for demanding applications such as sash windows Kingston upon Thames and doors, where it is important that tolerances are tight yet regardless of the conditions, they open year round. Accoya® is perfect for siding where wood’s natural beauty is desired, but sustainability and high performance are of the utmost importance. In decking, where it is important that boards do not warp, twist, bow split, Accoya® is up to the challenge.
Westgate Joinery were one of the first companies in the UK to start using Accoya® wood back in 2007 and have completed a large number of projects that included Accoya Timber WIndows & Doors.
