Accoya® wood is a high performance wood. Created from sustainably-sourced wood, Accoya® undergoes a proprietary, non-toxic acetylation process that permanently modifies the wood to the core.
The result: an environmentally friendly solid wood with durability, dimensional stability and beauty that matches or exceeds even the best tropic hardwood.
Accoya® wood is sourced from sustainable sources, including FSC and has class leading environmental credentials such as Cradle to Cradle™ Gold certification by the highly prestigious McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) organization.
Wood acetylation is a process that has been studied by scientists around the world for more than eighty years. The Accoya® wood production process combines this work with years of proprietary research and investment to deliver consistent results on a commercial scale.
By significantly enhancing the durability and dimensional stability of fast-growing and abundantly available certified wood species, Accoya® wood provides compelling environmental advantages over slow-growing hardwoods, woods treated with toxic chemicals and non-renewable carbon intensive materials such as plastics, metals and concrete
Jacobs Joinery used Accoya in the construction of the bell tower at Craneswater Junior School, Portsmouth.
This dynamic young company was established in February 1997. This was a direct result of our parent company, Jacobs Construction Ltd, finding that they had ever-increasing requirements for specialist joinery.
Jacobs Joinery started manufacturing in late February 1997 on behalf of Jacobs Construction but were soon being asked to provide quotations for the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke joinery, predominantly to commercial markets, mainly to architects drawings and specifications.
