Innovation in wood.

The possibilities wood offers can be seen wherever we look: as furniture, decoration, musical instruments, structures – wood is a material that is aesthetically pleasing, endlessly practical and is our only naturally renewable building material. However, as an organic material that is susceptible to its surroundings, wood presents natural challenges when used for certain exterior applications.

Historically, the only way to overcome these challenges was to treat the wood with preservative chemicals or to choose tropical hardwoods from rapidly diminishing forests – offering only partial solutions to the natural challenges that are faced when using wood as a building material.

If an alternative existed which offered all of the best characteristics of wood, was sourced from sustainable forests, had zero toxicity and provided dimensional stability and durability that matched or exceeded even the best tropical hardwoods, an ideal material would have been found.

Accoya® wood is the solution.


Accoya® wood is the result of decades of research and development that has brought together a long-established and extensively proven wood modification technique – acetylation – and leading-edge patented technology to create a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications.

Accoya® wood has properties that match or exceed those of the best tropical hardwoods, yet is manufactured from sustainable sourced wood.

Already the material of choice for a wide range of demanding outdoor applications, Accoya® wood can be used for virtually anything from windows to doors, decking to cladding, bridges to boats and even for applications that are presently only feasible with nonsustainable and man-made materials.

Accoya® is the future of wood.
