Accoya Garage Doors by Woodrite

Accoya® Wooden doors.

Accoya: The ideal timber for windows, doors, decking, structural products, playgrounds, bridges and cladding for various impressive buildings worldwide.
Essentially the timber of the future, Accoya ticks all the boxes for sustainability, the environment, performance, visual appearance and longevity.

The timber Accoya is as a result of the advancing acetylated wood technology, a process that has been studied by scientists around the world for more than 75 years, producing astonishing results and modern day benefits to construction work.

What are the Benefits for Garage Doors?

Accoya timber grainingIn regards to the garage door industry, Accoya is the ultimate timber; its stability increasing the lifespan of all external joinery products, adding an additional ten years to the average 50 for maintained hardwoods. The sheer hardness of the timber makes it less susceptible of denting or damage, therefore improving the longevity of the products. Its low maintenance makes Accoya significantly cost effective and environmentally sustainable.

Not only this, Accoya is the perfect timber for painting! The hard and consistent structure produces a much finer finish after sanding than comparable timber species, and the lack of absorption of water from the paint means that the final finish quality is better than for hardwood, as well as far more durable. An even greater finish is possible by using undergoing a grain fill process prior to painting.Environmental Advantages & The Acetylation Process

Accoya timber can be grown in 25 years, but will last 60 years in application – this makes it a net absorber of CO2 and an incredibly green building material.Accoya is manufactured using species of timber that can be managed sustainably

Its existance is as a result of the acetylation process, meaning that Accoya has been modified right through to the core, increasing the timber's strength whilst not compromising its bending properties.

As the timber is only sourced from forest's where sustainability is high and closely monitored, and due to its supreme durability, Accoya is surely the best timber available in regards to the environment. Of course, the wood is non-toxic and entirely safe for both humans and pets!

The timber species commonly selected to process into Accoya is radiata pine, as this is a softwood species that grows rapidly.

The Industry's Ultimate Timber

Here at The Garage Door Centre, we recognise the importance of all exterior timber doors being durable, easy to maintain and dimensionally stable, all to prevent doors potentially jamming during bad weather and changes in air moisture.

Accoya is the perfect solution for exterior cladding and façades where aesthetics, little maintenance, durability and insulation value are always key factors. Plus, it can be opaque coated in a wide range of colours, or for those wishing to enjoy the natural look of timber, translucent coated.

For window frames, Accoya wood is the material of choice. Not only does it have extremely low thermal conductivity but it matches or exceeds the durability and dimensionally stability of the best tropical hardwoods available.




Are you looking for an authentic, traditional and hardwood garage door? Look no further than Accoya wood! Not only is Accoya durable and long-lasting, but it is also sustainable. The process of acetylation significantly increases the durability and stability of the raw timber, prolonging its useful life and so keeping the carbon locked in for longer.

So, let us dive in and discover how an Accoya Garage Door can transform your garage.

Upgrade the security on your home with Accoya Gates

We have been specialists in the design, manufacture and installation of timber gates since 1986. We have installed thousands of timber gates around the UK in various designs, sizes, timber species and operating methods. Accoya is a fantastic natural material to work with and use in and around a property externally. The majority of timber gates we install are electrically operated and the gates are more than suitable for the pressures that gate automation applies to the gate leaves.

Have peace of mind with Accoya Gates and the benefits that come with this hardwood.

· 50 Year Guarantee against Rot from the manufacturer when used above ground.
· Extremely minimal movement/shrinkage/swelling, this is due to the acetylation process that the timber is put through, which realigns the cells in the timber so that they are all facing the same way which prevents the movement of the timber.
· A very good timber for painting, staining is also acceptable.
