Beautiful Charred Accoya Wood from reSAWNDecember 12, 2017
Appropriate for both interior and exterior cladding, Accoya is an “acetylated” wood that’s resistant to weather and rot.
The process of acetylation modifies the wood by naturally altering its chemical structure. By changing the free hydroxyls within the wood into acetyl groups, acetylation reduces the wood’s ability to absorb water without introducing toxins—“rendering the wood more dimensionally stable and extremely durable.”
reSAWN’s Accoya utilizes the revered Japanese technique of wood “shou sugi ban,” charring and sealing the wood to create a compelling aesthetic and unsurpassed performance.
The product is also eco-conscious, offering a longer lifespan, low maintenance, enhanced thermal insulation, and a low carbon footprint.
The rapidly renewable species is 100% recyclable and reusable. And all of reSAWN’S Accoya timber is sourced from sustainable sources.
