As a national distributor of the product, James Latham is seeing popularity of Accoya® - its modified, highly durable and dimensionally stable certified softwood - grow by the day - particularly within the bar and restaurant sectors where alfresco areas are more important than ever - as the material can withstand the elements without requiring frequent maintenance.
From garden furniture to decking, cladding and facades, Accoya® is ideal for all kinds of exterior applications due to its superior looks, sustainability and Class 1 durability.
Accoya® is guaranteed for 50 years in exterior use and 25 years when used in the ground and is one of the most advanced wood products on the market, using Accsys’ proprietary wood acetylation technology to achieve these outstanding levels of performance.
Made with FSC® certified wood from legal, manageable and sustainable forests, this high performance product carries a whole range of impressive features and benefits. As well as being dimensionally stable, it can be safely recycled and is as impressively durable as the highest quality tropical hardwoods. Plus, the wood’s natural appearance is retained for longer, thanks to the superior resistance to the effects of UV exposure.
James Latham has a strong track record in successfully marketing new and innovative products and Accoya® is now available from all ten of its timber distribution points covering the UK.
Paul Leach, James Latham’s Group Product Sales & Development Manager for Accoya said: “The outdoor space offered by a restaurant, bar or club has become more important than ever and as customers increasingly want to enjoy relaxing outside, whether it’s for decking, benches, tables, cladding or facades, Accoya® can help to create a stylish alfresco area.”
He added, “Accoya® is a fantastic material for external specification and fits perfectly with our already established range of sustainable products. The market is now looking for products which are not only more dimensionally stable and durable but are also versatile and Accoya® ticks all the boxes."
