Accoya® doors and windows add finishing touches to stunning UK homes
30 Mar 17
Accoya, the world-leading modified wood, has been used in the delivery of bespoke joinery projects for two stunning new build properties in the south of England.
The first of the two properties is based in Berkshire and received striking exterior facing doors made from Accoya as part of a tailor-made joinery package. Accoya was selected as the ideal wood to use due to its insulating capabilities, dimensional stability, 50 year guarantee and aesthetic finish – both the architects and the owners felt Accoya tied in perfectly with the overall exterior appearance of the house.
Accoya was also the product of choice for the external doors and frames of a second new build home based in Winchester. Including bespoke bi-folding and French doors, the insulating properties and high durability of Accoya makes it the best wood product to withstand the changeable and often harsh UK weather.
SB Joinery, the company who delivered both projects are trained and certified Accoya users.. Garth Matley, sales director at SB Joinery said: “A large proportion of our windows and doors are manufactured in Accoya and we recommended this timber for windows, doors and external applications due to its outstanding properties. Accoya is a hassle free timber!
“Accoya windows and doors stay in excellent condition and require very little maintenance. The homeowners were very happy with the final look their properties achieved with the addition of their bespoke Accoya windows and doors.”
Laura Keily, head of marketing for Accsys Technologies, commented: “Accoya is a fantastic product to add the finishing touches to your home. Both of these stunning properties are great examples of the different types of doors and windows that can be made from one of the world’s most sustainable, resilient and best performing woods.
“Not only does the addition of the Accoya doors and windows really complement the overall appearance achieved by both properties, the homeowners can enjoy them knowing they will last for many years so come. We hope to see many more residential projects featuring Accoya in the UK in the near future.”
