Durability like no other wood, 50 years above ground, 25 years in-ground!

Accoya® wood is Class 1 durable, which is comparable or better than the durability of hardwoods such as Jarrah, Rosewood, and Teak. Accoya® wood is also FSC certified and has class leading environmental credentials such as Cradle to Cradle™ Gold certification by the highly prestigious McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) organization.

Great for decks, windows, doors, cladding and more

Accoya® wood is perfect for demanding applications such as windows and doors, where it is important that tolerances are tight, yet regardless of the conditions, they open year round. Recent tests show that Accoya® wood is perfect for coated cladding where reduced maintenance is required, even with wood stains and dark colours. In decking, where it is important that boards do not warp, twist, bow split, Accoya® is up to the challenge.
