WHy WOOD?

Wood is the material of choice for traditional windows and doors. It offers warmth, durability, sustainability and ease of maintenance. The appearance of wood is in keeping with the period home and Woodland’s long experience hasn’t been wasted – since our founding in 1978 we have continuously researched and improved the materials we use to ensure the highest quality in every component we manufacture.

We believe we manufacture the finest windows and doors you will find. We are committed to sourcing only the best materials, without compromise. For this reason Accoya™ is incorporated in every product manufactured by Woodland.

More information about Accoya™

Accoya™ is a high performance wood. Created from sustainably-sourced timber, 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 tropical hardwoods.

Accoya™ wood is sustainably sourced, 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.

Accoya™ wood is perfect for demanding applications such as windows and doors, where it is important that tolerances are tight yet regardless of the conditions, they open year round.

Extensive laboratory and field testing by leading institutes around the world (including in New Zealand, USA, UK, Sweden, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, the Netherlands and Japan) has shown the performance of acetylated wood to be extremely reliable. Accoya™ wood has been thoroughly tested for dimensional stability, durability, UV resistance, paint retention and in-ground conditions to ensure optimal performance. Indeed, it is so reliable that for many years it has been - and continues to be - used by scientists as the benchmark against which other treatments and modifications are measured.
