Why Choose Accoya?

Why Choose Accoya?

Accoya® turns everything you know about wood on its head. Through a revolutionary scientific process called acetylation, it modifies wood to give it properties above and beyond the very best hardwoods – and in many cases, aluminium and PVC.

Since its launch in 2007, Accoya has been selected by hundreds of manufacturers as their wood of choice and used on architecturally significant projects from around the world. But perhaps its most exciting application is in everyday homes, where it brings new possibilities for posts, bollards, barge boards and finials.
