Accoya is made from sustainable wood which provides maximum resource while locking in carbon from the atmosphere.
Accoya wood is a type of treated wood that has several advantages over traditional wood materials. The treatment process changes the wood’s cellular structure, making it more hydrophobic, durable, and stable. It’s also a renewable material that can be sustainably sourced. Here are some of the benefits of Accoya wood:
1. Improved durability and stability: Accoya wood is highly resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage. It’s also more stable and less prone to warping, swelling, or shrinking.
2. Increased lifespan: Accoya wood has a lifespan of up to 50 years above ground and 25 years below ground.
3. Moisture resistance: Accoya wood has lower moisture content than other types of wood, which makes it ideal for outdoor applications.
4. Sustainability: Accoya wood is sourced from sustainable forests, and its manufacturing process produces less waste and uses fewer resources than traditional wood treatments.
5. Versatility: Accoya wood can be used for a wide range of applications, including decking, cladding, joinery, and exterior furniture. It can also be painted, stained, or left natural.
