Finesse Products & Accoya Wood

What is Accoya Wood?

Accoya wood is a class 1 durable material which is typically used in window frames, doors, facades, decking and cladding. Made from the pine tree 'radiata pine', the raw material undergoes a modification process called acetylation once harvested. This process creates a rot resistant, durable wood which maintains stability across all climates without affecting the materials natural appearance. The treated wood is a popular choice with joiners and builders due to its optimal performance both on land and in water - offering a 50 year guarantee on land and 25 years warranty in ground or water.

What are the Benefits of Accoya Wood?

Accoya wood offers a number of benefits including:

  • Increased stability - most types of wood experience dimensional changes when exposed to different conditions and temperatures. Particularly, swelling is often experienced in damp or wet conditions and shrinkage may occur in dry, hot environments. This causes issues in window and door applications including jamming, warping and splitting. Unlike other woods, Acooya wood offers excellent stability by reducing swelling and shrinkage by 75%.

  • Excellent finishing - The love for Accoya wood amongst builders and joiners also comes from the ultimate consistency and quality when finishing the material. Coatings last longer on Accoya wood, creating a low maintenance material which saves times and money in the long term.
