A Summary of Accoya® Wood

Accoya® high performance wood is suitable for wooden cladding and façades where aesthetics, less frequent maintenance, dimensional stability, durability and insulation value are key factors. Accoya’s® versatility makes it ideal for use in residential, commercial and industrial structures.

Manufactured using a non-toxic treatment and timber sourced from sustainable forests, Accoya® wood has properties that match those of the best tropical hardwoods.

Every batch of Accoya® wood is tested after production to ensure that its durability can be guaranteed.

Take a look at just some of the benefits:

  • Accoya® wood is modified all the way through, not just at the surface.
  • Coating maintenance intervals can be expected to be twice as long on Accoya® wood.
  • Thermal conductivity is improved in comparison with softwoods and hardwoods.

Accoya® wood’s durability (resistance to rot) is Class 1, matching and even exceeding the performance of nature’s most durable woods such as Oak, Teak, Iroko and Sapele. Every batch of Accoya® wood is tested after production to ensure that its durability can be guaranteed.

  • Class 1 durability – facilitating a longer life span.
  • Lasting 50 years above ground.

Significantly enhancing the dimensional stability of Accoya® wood provides compelling environmental advantages over slow-growing hardwoods (which are often unsustainably sourced) and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastic, steel and concrete.

Properties of Accoya® wood match, or even exceed those of the best tropical hardwoods, yet is manufactured from sustainably sourced wood.

  • Outstanding dimensional stability.
By significantly enhancing the durability and dimensional stability of fast growing, abundantly available certified wood species, Accoya® wood provides compelling environmental advantages over scarce slow growing hardwoods, woods treated with toxic chemicals, and non-renewable carbon-intensive materials such as plastics, steel and concrete.

Accoya® has been certified at the C2C Gold level since 2010, as the only structural building material around. A large benefit of C2C certification is that, especially at the higher certification levels (Gold & Platinum) it contributes to several credits in recognised Green Building Schemes such as LEED and BREEAM.

At end-of-use, Accoya® provides no challenges whatsoever. It can be treated similar to untreated wood and thus can be re- or upcycled in various ways.

  • Always sustainably sourced from abundantly available, often fast growing wood species.
  • Use phase advantages: increased life span, less maintenance, superior thermal insulation.
  • Non toxic and 100% recyclable – a perfect fit with the bio-cycle of the C2C philosophy.
  • CO2 negative over the full life cycle.
