Accoya - now good for 70 Years?

TRADA ( UK) has upgraded the life expectancy for windows and doors made from Accoya from 50 to 70 years in the UK and Europe as long as they are made using good joinery practice and are coated and maintained. Accoya use in the Joinery trade in Europe and the UK is booming. The long life and good practices are a winning combination. In NZ we have seen a number of jobs use Accoya but the trade has to date not seen the benefits as has been the case in other countries. Pretty hard to not see the benefits of a timber that is so stable and durable for Joinery. In NZ the joinery in your house to meet the Building Code only has to last 15 years, not exactly what most of us expect, but it is the law.

The London Door Company

Accoya use in other applications such as weather boards is taking off, as is use for boardwalks, decking, and other specialised end uses. The weather boards are a big change and combined with battens and screens we are seeing big volume sales flowing into this particular end uses. Decking sales are growing steadily as well.

Prestigious Doors

Sales in Accoya are growing fast and the demand is being driven in many cases by those that choose not to use Tropical Hardwoods. The miss use of hardwoods is helping our case as well. In recent weeks the failure of hardwoods in boardwalks has been a case in point over the great value Accoya can bring to many applications. Why have to maintain and replace timbers when using accoya means less maintenance and longer life?
