Accoya Windows, Doors & Conservatories
Accoya® is the world’s leading high technology wood. Created from sustainably sourced softwood, Accoya matches or exceeds the durability, stability and beauty of the very best tropical hardwoods.The production process takes fast growing softwood and makes it as durable as hardwood. The is done by reacting the wood with acetic anhydride (known as vinegar when diluted), this changes the chemical structure of the wood, making the woods ability to absorb water much less.

All of our timber products are coated using the Teknos water-based paint system.
The paint or stain finish applied to our Dempsey product range is of an exceptionally high standard. Our timber products undergo a 4 step finishing process. The assembled product is treated to protect endgrains from moisture ingress and a base coat is applied by flowcoater and two top coats are applied to the correct micron thickness by a controlled spray line.
Our paint system protects the wood in three ways:
- It protects the wood from harmful ultra-violet rays which can cause greying and coarsing of the wood.
- It protects the wood from water ingress, and being microporous allows excess moisture to escape.
- It is flexible and it can therefore expand and contract naturally with the Timber.
