Accoya wood has recently been specified by Architekturo Siemonsen for windows at private residence in Hamburg, Germany.
Fitted by Reinhard Adling Accoya was chosen for this project because of its stability and durability properties over other woods.
Accoya wood is the perfect substrate for windows and doors as its naturally insulating and is so stable that the coatings last longer.
Extensive laboratory and field testing by leading institutes around the world (including in New Zealand, USA, UK, Sweden, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Netherlands and Japan) has shown the performance of acetylated wood to be extremely reliable.
Accoya® wood has been thoroughly tested for dimensional stability, durability, paint retention and in-ground conditions to ensure optimal performance. Indeed, it is so reliable that for many years it has been – and continues to be – used by scientists as the benchmark against which other treatments and modifications are measured.
Newlands Joinery can recommend Accoya for sash windows and other joinery uses and have received excellent feedback on recent projects in and around Sevenoaks.
