Accoya Wood

Accoya Wood is the latest high-tech development in durable, stable and sustainable long-life timber.

The Accoya process applies 90 years of research and development to sustainably sourced softwoods, modifying the cell structure of the wood from surface to core in a 100% safe and non-toxic way.
The resulting Accoya timber is an ethically sourced softwood with the strength and beauty of a traditional hardwood.

ACCOYA vs PLASTIC

It could be said that PVC is comparable to Accoya in terms of durability. However, PVC windows are promoted on their energy efficiency. In truth Calder Wood Joinery, Accoya produced wood products are more energy efficient with high natural insulating qualities.

– Cheaper Repair Costs –
– Better Long Term Appearance –
– Wider Array of Colour Options –

Why use Accoya?

Accoya is rapidly becoming the material of choice for a wide range of outdoor structures, being ideal for windows, doors, cladding, decking and so much more.

Traditional woods absorb and release water as weather conditions change, making them susceptible to expansion and contraction when used outdoors. Accoya has been rigorously tested over prolonged periods in all conditions, including being underground and even in water for 20 years, proving its ability to withstand the toughest environments.

Accoya woods modified structure means the timber absorbs 80% less water, vastly improving the woods stability, significantly reducing the need for maintenance. For instance, coatings such as paints and stains stay on Accoya wood up to 3 times longer than on standard materials.
The Timber Research and Development Association (TRADA) found Accoya the only wood that didn’t cup under extensive test condition.

Accoya wood uses

Accoya Wood from Calder Wood Joinery is an ideal choice for all outdoor applications, especially where aesthetics and infrequent maintenance are critical. The dimensional stability allows for complete design flexibility.

Decking
Accoya Wood’s all-weather performance and dimensional stability make it a perfect timber for decking. Additionally, it is 100% non toxic, making it completely safe for people and pets.

Outdoor Furniture
Accoya wood is ideal for tables, chairs, tree houses and landscaping timbers due to its non toxic nature and ability to withstand the rigors of the British weather, lasting at least 25 years in ground contact.

Window Frames & Doors
Accoya wood has natural insulating properties and is more durable than other woods. This means no more swelling or shrinking, so no more sticking doors or windows. Plus Accoya wood retains its look for longer meaning lower maintenance requirements and increased cost-effectiveness.
