Accoya Door

Church glazed doors

Oak Door

Spring Newsletter

Accoya wood has been a new timber we have been using to great success over the last 12 months or so. A New Zealand Radiata pine which has essentially been pickled, to produce a hard wearing, durable timber suited to exterior and challenging conditions.

Accoya® has properties that match or exceed those of the best tropical hardwoods and treated woods, yet is manufactured using wood from sustainable sources.

We have produced a number of door sets and gates from this astonishing timber, which is dimensionally stable and is easy to paint. If you would like a quote for a build in Accoya wood, drop us an email and we will be happy to quote.

We are also busy building with our homegrown stocks of Perthshire oak. This fabulous timber has beautiful grain patterns and magnificent rays! Ideal for garden gates, exterior doors or garden furniture.

Get your plans for the Summer going here!
