With spring approaching, many specifiers and designers will soon be tasked with upgrading or introducing decking to outdoor areas in time for warmer weather.
Leading modified wood product Accoya® is considered by many to be the preferred wood for the job with installers, contractors, builders and DIY enthusiasts specifying the product for its easy maintenance, long lifespan, 50 year warranty and exceptional environmental credentials.
Manufactured by Accsys Technologies, the patented Accoya production process takes sustainably-sourced, fast-growing wood and enhances it through acetylation to create a modified and ecologically friendly wood that matches or exceeds the durability, stability and beauty of the very best tropical hardwoods.
Thermography tests show that the premium Accoya decking product is ‘bare-foot friendly’ meaning it remains cool to walk on despite being in direct sunlight in days of 32 degrees Celsius. It also remains smooth and splinter resistant, even in high temperatures. This is just one of the advantages of using the wood in locations with changeable conditions such as pool-side or in direct sunlight.
