International Timber Launches New Product Launch at Ecobuild

International Timber, the UK’s leading importer and supplier of timber products, has expanded its already extensive range with the launch of Accoya Face Laminated Components for windows and doors. This high performing, cost effective window and door product is brought to the UK through an exclusive agreement between Accsys Plc, NFP Europe and International Timber, and was launched at Ecobuild.

Accoya Face Laminated Components is a sustainably sourced manufactured product developed using a non-toxic modification process. It is a high performing, efficient alternative to tropical hardwoods and has a Class 1 durability rating on the weather facing elements. Due to its dimensional stability it can be used in windows and doors with less chance of them jamming in humid conditions.

The Accoya wood is laminated to the external weather face of the engineered Redwood components, ensuring a contemporary smooth finish which can withstand the elements. It also means the timber is competitively priced due to the reduced amount of Accoya needed.

As with all International Timber products it comes with leading environmental credentials from both FSC and PEFC, and is 100 per cent recyclable.

Tony Miles, managing director for International Timber, said: "Accoya Face Laminated Components is another great addition to our product offer and is a great alternative to tropical hardwoods for window frames and doors. Also, due to the way the timber has been treated, maintenance intervals are significantly increased which saves both time and money for the end user."

Accoya Face Laminated Components has also successfully passed stringent delamination and dimensional stability tests and is resistant to UV rays, rot and insects, making it a long-lasting and competitively priced solution for joinery professionals.
