This page has been designed to help architects and specifiers with the selection and specification of Accoya cladding, louvres, shutters, windows, doors, canal lining and decking. Its use will ensure every Accoya application meets industrial performance standards, requires minimal maintenance and offers a level of durability which is compatible with typical building design life expectations.

General specification principles

The principles of specifying products made from Accoya wood are the same as for other timber products except that service life expectations for Accoya wood are generally greater than for other timbers and there is greater flexibility of design relating to the stability of wood.
See Accoya Specification Guide.


Where can you find Accoya wood products?

Accoya wood is produced in rough sawn boards of various dimensions. These boards are then supplied to distributors and onto the manufacturers who make products such as cladding, decking and joinery products out of them. Find a supplier.
