Benefits of Accoya
Accoya® turns everything you know about wood on its head.
The benefits of Accoya® mean that timber projects can now be designed with absolute confidence. Accoya® is stable, water resistant wood and warrantied. Our quality mark signals the Accoya® difference.
Accoya® brings unprecedented reliability for timber; it is checked and trusted not to visibly swell, shrink or distort, with minimal movement. Highly durable, it withstands the test of any climate and is a highly rot resistant wood. And what’s more, it stays that way – a 50 year above ground, and 25 year below ground and freshwater warranty are testament to the fact that you can expect to enjoy your Accoya® wood for many decades to come.
Accoya® is the truly sustainable choice that helps you meet global challenges like climate change. From source to production and through to end of life, sustainability shines through.

With a low carbon footprint, you can help combat carbon emissions for a healthier world. It’s also non toxic, so safe for people and pets as well as the planet.
Finish sums up many of the reasons architects and manufacturers love working with Accoya® – coatings look brilliant and last longer, and its easy and hassle free care save time and money in the long-term. It also offers huge design freedom, with the ability to create a multitude of textural finishes such as smooth, charred and brushed, plus bespoke size and finish options for endless creativity.
