Creating the future with Accoya®

UNAVITA®

WINDOW WOOD

The wood window of the future

The excellent characteristics of Accoya®, which is to 100 % a naturally modified wood, prove their worth also in window construction. The unique combination of durability, dimensional stability, surface quality and ecologic sustainability sets new standards for this application. The extraordinary heat transmission values and the excellent thermal insulation properties provide for long-term energy saving in addition. Comparative tests with Accoya® and other unmodified wood species confirm again and again that stain and varnish finishes have an enormously long durability and thus significantly reduce the maintenance of Accoya® windows.

Accoya® is the tested window wood

The German Quality Association for Windows and Front Doors (Gütegemeinschaft Fenster und Haustüren e.V.) has tested Accoya® for all its properties at the most renowned institutes under the leadership of the institute of material testing ift Rosenheim. The result is the authorization of this material for window construction and the incorporation in the wood species list of VFF HO.06 Part 4 “Wood species for windows construction”: “Modified Wood.”

UNAVITA® WINDOW SCANTLINGS

Laminated Scantlings

Accoya® top layer of at least 22 mm thickness; random structure (mainly flat grains); the timber may show strong colour variations (grey/black streaks etc.) as typical for Accoya®; Accsys recommends stainless steel for all parts, such as screws, ironmongery etc., which can get in contact with the Accoya® timber; PU laminated; not additionally planed after the lamination process (some glue may be seen on the edges of scantlings!)

Available with all layers in Accoya® or combined with Pine or Spruce. Also with PEFC™-certificate available!

HISTORICLINE

Especially developed for historical windows, based on the preservation requirements for historical buildings

Rain drip bars without glue joint, made of a single solid piece of Accoya®. They perfectly protect the critical part of the window against weathering and ensure best possible resistance, shape stability and colour durability.
