MANUFACTURED FROM ACCOYA®
Wouldn’t it be great if there is a wood that was made from fast growing, carbon catching trees, combined with performance credentials that matched or exceeded tropical hardwoods, PVC and aluminium? The answer is Accoya®.
Accoya® means responsibility and SUSTAINABILITY
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!
