International Timber supplies ACCOYA® cladding nationwide

Reinforcing its commitment to providing an unrivalled breadth and depth of high quality, sustainable products nationwide, International Timber is now a key distributor of Accoya® cladding across the UK. The development follows a successful start to its contract to supply the modified softwood products in Scotland. 

The result of over 75 years research and development, Accoya® combines a long established acetylation wood modification technique with cutting edge technology to give properties that surpass those of the best tropical hardwoods. Offering a more environmentally friendly solution, it is manufactured using non-toxic processes and timber from managed, sustainable sources. 

Accoya® cladding provides numerous aesthetic and practical benefits. It has a minimum 60 year life expectancy, backed by BRE and supported with a 50 year guarantee, and is rot resistant; achieving the highest possible British Standard durability rating, class 1. 

International Timber also offers exceptional coatings performance on Accoya® products as an approved Sikkens partner. With guarantees of up to eight years for opaque finishes and six years for translucent finishes; minimal maintenance is required, even in urban environments. 

Steve Rogers, product and market director at International Timber, comments: “Sustainability and durability are key considerations when specifying timber cladding products. Accoya®’s outstanding 60 year durability and the significant reduction in timber shrinkage and expansion it provides make it an ideal choice for architects and specifiers looking for a low maintenance, long-lasting solution that will stay looking good for years to come.”
