We are please to announce we have added Dempsey Dyer’s new Accoya timber to compliment the traditional hardwood and larch range. Accoya timber has been under development by leading research institutes across the globe since 1928. It is now commercially available and living up to billing of exceptional performance.
Quite simply, these are the best timber windows money can buy. Without costing the earth.
Specifically designed to be installed in exposed areas the Accoya range performs well in any aspect and while the Accoya range does come at a premium over traditional hardwoods it boasts the follows features:
