MANUFACTURED FROM ACCOYA®
Accoya® is modified wood. It is extremely durable and weather
resistant, a wood material of natural beauty that offers convincing
environmental benefits, which have been honoured with awards.
The worldwide leading high-performance wood, which is the
result of decades of research and development, combines the
well-tried modification process of acetylation with innovative
proprietary technology. It was conceived for exterior applications
of highest demands, ranging from windows and doors to facade
cladding and flooring and including landscape applications such
as bridges, benches and many others.
Accoya® means responsibility
Therefore, all Accoya® wood products originate from FSC-certified sustainably managed forests. Moreover, the product carries the “cradle-to-cradle” gold mark, which is a guaranty for continuous metabolic cycles and positively defined materials. Healthy for humans and the environment.
Wood at its best
The wood of the Pinus Radiata, from sustainable forestry with FSC certification, is optimised by the acetylation process in many respects, from the surface to the core, 100 % natural. The process reduces the ability of the wood to absorb water. This gives the wood a significantly higher dimensional stability and makes it extremely durable.
The intelligent solution
Therefore, Accoya® is the first choice for the manufacture of dimensionally stable, exterior components with any kind of stain or varnish finish. Considerably reduced swelling and shrinkage of the wood enormously increase the dimensional stability and thus significantly reduce stress on the pigmented coating. This leads to less maintenance and noticeably reduces running costs.
The outstanding dimensional stability, like no other wood, allows the realisation of even demanding solid wood facade designs or terrace floor boards with a width of 192 millimetres and a length of up to 4.8 metres, without reason to worry. The acetylation process gives the wood a pleasant warm and durable feel, is „barefoot friendly“ and is ideally suited for prefabricated wood seats of any kind.
Classification in resistance class 1 guarantees the highest resistance to wood-destroying fungi and insects and enables a maximum long-term outdoor use of this wood over at least 25 or 50 years!
