* Accoya® wood is still timber. It will still exhibit traditional timber characteristics and will react to the local environment it is in.

Using Accoya® cladding, decking, seating and screening is the perfect way to get that beach or weathered look, Accoya® will grey over time while maintaining the natural grain and contours of the timber.
Like all timbers, the process of going from freshly machined timber to weathered grey can take time and can cause an uneven or inconsistent look throughout the ageing process.
The level of exposure to the elements creates a number of factors that impact the ageing of Accoya®, sun, wind, dust and grime, proximity to vegetation, placement in relation to other buildings, overhangs and fences. Each application of Accoya® will create a unique and beautifully natural space for you to enjoy.

One way to mitigate this is to use a grey tint in an external oil** so the timber is already grey before the environmental conditions start to weather it.
This way there is some surface protection from the harshest conditions, and it can provide a balancing of the greying off effect in those areas that maybe sheltered or where weathering inconsistencies may occur.
At Paradise Timbers we can machine Accoya® into a variety of different cladding profiles to suit your application and help you get the style you want to create.
Using Accoya® internally makes great sense especially for zones at high risk of damp, movement, or insect attack.
With hundreds of profiles to choose from here are some of the most popular profiles you can create:
Paradise Timbers machines everything on site in our purpose built facility. This means we can run any size or profile, match an existing profile, or design a new one to suit any application.
If it can be machined from timber, Paradise Timbers can do it. No job size is to small.
Accoya® was developed in the Netherlands and used extensively in their dike systems so it can be submerged in fresh water!
