International Timber expands range with Accoya Redwood Component 
 
International Timber, the UK ’s leading importer and distributor of timber products, has introduced a revolutionary new product - Accoya Redwood Component. With the same high performance as Accoya, but at a more competitive price due to the reduced amount of Accoya used, this engineered softwood solution is already proving a welcome addition to the timber market.   
 
Accoya Redwood Component is produced from sustainably sourced, fast growing wood. A non-toxic modification process is used to give the timber performance that rivals even the most durable tropical hardwoods and it has a Class 1 durability rating and a minimum 60 year service life.
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 of International Timber, comments: “Accoya Redwood Component is a durable and convenient solution to meet all joinery needs. It delivers consistent quality and is easily machined. Due to its stability it can be used in windows and doors as there is less chance of them jamming in humid conditions.”

Naturally insulating, Accoya Redwood Component offers enhanced thermal conductivity in comparison to softwoods and hardwoods.  It has successfully passed the stringent BRL2902 delamination test and is resistant to UV rays, rot and insects, making it a long-lasting and competitively priced solution for joinery professionals.
