The Alpha Sash Window Company are Accredited Accoya Suppliers.
Accoya is the world’s leading high technology wood. Created from sustainably sourced softwood; it matches or exceeds the durability, stability and beauty of the very best tropical hardwoods.
The Accoya wood production process takes sustainably sourced, fast growing softwood and, in a non-toxic process, creates a durable and stable wood.
This method of improving wood has been proven to deliver such superior performance that it has long been used as the “gold standard” against which other methods are measured.
The stability of the timber will increase the lifespan of all external products. Typically, 50 years in external service with maintenance program adhered to.
New sashes and Box frames (if being supplied) are spray painted at the workshop with Teknos water-based paints (1 coat primer with 2 top coats). This paint is micro porous (which allows the timber to breath) and is recommended with the use of Accoya timber as well other timbers.
Any existing box frames being retained are hand painted on site with Dulux Weather Shield Oil Paints to the external areas and the internal areas are painted with a Johnson’s Opaque Water Based Paint.
