There’s no denying the importance of your home’s front door. Distinct, bold, and eye-catching, that all-important entrance panel is the first impression many will receive when visiting your property. For this reason, it’s important to get it right. Thankfully, Accoya doors offer great style, impressive performance, and exquisite security in spades, being a type of timber that improves upon original wooden doors to represent the very best front entrance option. Here’s why:

Engineered to improve the material’s technical properties

What makes Accoya doors different from their traditional timber counterparts is that they undergo a process known as wood acetylation. It’s an incredibly effective engineering process that actively changes the cell structure of the wood, strengthening it to enhance timber’s natural properties. The advantages of doing this are many; increased durability, retained hardness, and natural insulation. All elements that any good front door should boast!

Despite what some might initially think, Accoya wood is wholly crafted without adversely impacting the environment. Anyone who’s worked with us before knows how much we invest in the belief that ‘wood is good’, which is why we’ve aligned with a process designed to be as natural as possible. Once installed, Accoya doors offer all the benefits of a traditional timber entrance and more, all while remaining eco-friendly.

Generously long lifespan, offering more bang for your buck

When investing in an Accoya door, you can be assured that the ensuing benefits will be reaped for many years to come. This is because the panels are incredibly durable, with an estimated lifespan of 80 years – you’ll never need to purchase another entrance door again! Due to the modified cell structure, Accoya doors are some of the hardest and high-performing on the UK market. Softwood doors don’t stand a chance against them and won’t last nearly as long.

An overall sense of ‘history without the hassle’

Many of us marvel at the natural beauty of traditional timber doors, but what’s not so marvellous are the consistent levels of upkeep needed to keep them looking good. Accoya doors do away with this entirely, being strong enough in its UV resistance, infestation immunity, and dimensional stability to provide the feel of history without any of the historical hassle.
