A high performance wood which is smooth, stable and easy to work with, ideal for joinery projects


What is Accoya Wood?

Accoya® turns everything you know about wood on its head.  A revolutionary scientific process called acetylation modifies radiata pine wood to give it properties above and beyond the very best hardwoods.


Accoya brings unprecedented reliability for timber; it is incredibly stable and so won’t visibly shrink, swell or distort. Highly durable, it withstands the test of any climate. 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.


Providing the ultimate consistency and quality, finish is a key reason that so many architects and manufacturers love working with Accoya. Coatings look brilliant and last longer, and generally require less maintenance which saves time and money in the long-term. Accoya also offers huge design freedom, with the ability to create a multitude of textural finishes such as smooth, charred and brushed.  Accoya machines beautifully and easily to offer bespoke size and finish options for endless creativity.


From source to production and through to end of life, the sustainability of Accoya shines through. It is Cradle to Cradle Gold® certified and the only construction material in the world to achieve C2C Platinum® certification for Material Health. Accoya is FSC® certified to guarantee it has been sourced from responsibly managed forests. 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.

Accoya has excellent workability as well as being highly stable and durable.  This makes it perfect for both internal and external joinery projects, for example creating bespoke doors or window frames.
