  USE PHASE

Due to its improved properties – such as increased durability, improved thermal insulation and longer coating life as a result of increased dimensional stability – Accoya® wood provides several environmental gains during its use phase.

Longer lifespan: Since Accoya is Class 1 durable
(EN 350), the highest durability class possible,
and is guaranteed to last 50 years above ground
and 25 years in direct soil contact, it has a longer
lifespan than the alternatives which enables
lower material consumption (less replacement!).
The planned Service Life of Accoya is actually 77
to 90 years, depending on exposure conditions.

CO2 neutral: The low emissions during Accoya
production combined with the increased life span
and good recyclability, means Accoya window
frames are even assessed to be CO2 neutral
over the full life cycle, for more information
see environmental assessments.

Less maintenance: Furthermore, the superior dimensional stability of Accoya means it requires less frequent coatings maintenance with the subsequent environmental benefit (and lower costs as well).

Better thermal insulation: Finally, compared to other durable wood species, Accoya offers superior thermal insulation, which yields energy conservation advantages in applications such as window frames.
