Accoya® - your 50 year guarantee wood | New in South Africa

 



Accoya® is available as an enhancement to the standard product range or as a complete product unit.

Imagine a solid wood that is sourced from fast-growing sustainable forests, has zero toxicity and provides dimensional stability and durability that exceeds even the best tropical hardwoods. Imagine a wood that can replace increasingly scarce tropical hardwoods, treated woods and less sustainable materials in new and existing outdoor applications. Imagine a wood that will act as a better carbon sink during its extended life span and can be safely recycled at the end. Such a wood exists. It is Accoya® wood: the world’s leading high technology wood.

 

Accoya® wood has been tested over prolonged periods in all types of weathering conditions — above ground, below ground and even in water — and has been proven to withstand the toughest of external environments. The exceptional durability and dimensional stability mean that Accoya® wood requires significantly less maintenance, because paints and stains stay where they belong: on the wood. In fact, test results between Accoya® wood and unmodified wood constantly prove that coatings last up to 3 times as long on Accoya® wood.

Accoya Solid and Accoya Enhanced products are manufactured by Tailormade Joinery, the Distributor of Accoya Wood for Southern Africa.

Natural Science

  • Spanning eight decades of research, Accoya® wood combines past and present scientific wood acetylation study with a proprietary production process to deliver reliable commercial-scale results. The acetylation process used to make Accoya® wood is entirely non-toxic and introduces no chemicals not already found in the wood. In producing Accoya® wood, the chemical structure of the wood is modified from the surface to the core, providing outstanding and durable performance Accoya® wood is fast becoming the material of choice for exterior applications and can be used for virtually anything, from windows to doors, decking to siding and even for applications which were once only feasible with non-sustainable materials.

Why Choose Accoya®

 Window frames, doors & shutters

Accoya® wood is naturally insulating and is more durable and dimensionally stable than other woods. This means windows do not swell closed, doors continually open freely and shutters maintain their authentic beauty. Accoya® wood may be opaque, translucent or transparent coated, and its lower maintenance requirements increase its cost effectiveness.

 NL green label

Accoya® has been given “A” rating, which is the highest rating because of its extremely high durability, low maintenance requirements and the excellent recyclability.

 Cradle to cradle gold certificate

Accoya® wood (Radiata Pine and Alder) is one of the very few building products to have acquired Cradle to CradleSM Certification on the exclusive Gold level. Cradle to Cradle (C2C) provides a means to tangibly and credibly measure achievement in environmentally-intelligent design including the use of environmentally safe and healthy materials and instituting strategies for social responsibility.
