At SashWise all of our windows are made from a timber called Accoya. It may be the first time you are hearing of this type of wood, so allow us to explain a little further.
Sustainably sourced and Environmentally friendly
Created from sustainably-sourced wood, Accoya undergoes a non-toxic treatment process that permanently modifies the wood to the core. The result, an environmentally friendly solid wood with durability, dimensional stability and beauty that matches and even exceeds the most durable woods such as Oak, Teak and Sapele.
Great for us and great for your home
Why we at SashWise love Accoya? Improved dimensional stability means far less swelling and shrinkage so windows openly effortlessly all year round. It also means paint coatings last up to two times longer than on other woods. This combined with the fact that Accoya is virtually rot-proof results is far less ongoing maintenance costs.
