Accoya - 10 year finish warranty

The Thetford range of wooden garage doors is hand crafted in Accoya® mouldings, and Accoya® tongue & groove boards. Its unique qualities make it ideal for garage doors and its ten year warranty on finish is remarkable.

The Thetford range of Accoya garage doors, named after the UK’s largest pine forest, uses Accoya®. What is Accoya®?

Accoya® wood is the result of decades of research and development that has brought together a long-established, extensively proven wood modification technique and leading-edge patented technology – acetylation to create a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications.

Accoya® has properties that match or exceed those of the best tropical hardwoods and treated woods, yet is manufactured using wood from sustainable sources.

Already the material of choice for a wide range of demanding outdoor applications, Accoya® wood can be used for virtually anything from decking to cladding, bridges to boats and even for applications that are presently only feasible with non-sustainable and man-made materials... and now Woodrite garage doors!

Accoya® wood has been modified right through to the core and the acetylation process does not weaken the original wood – in fact, its hardness is improved – nor does it compromise its bending strength.

Painting your door?

Accoya® is perfect for painting any RAL colour, Farrow and Ball paint or similar heritage paint finishes. The Accoya® treatment process fixes all tannins and resins, ensuring no leaching of stains through the paint finish can occur, making Accoya® the ideal timber to take a paint finish.

All finishes carry a ten year warranty from our stain supply partners Teknos - equivalent to a finished steel garage door!
