Accoya®, the world-leading modified wood manufactured by Accsys Technologies, has been used by a leading UK supplier to create an innovative window solution for a Victorian warehouse project.
London Box Sash Windows was approached by Ben Adams Architects to design long-lasting, low maintenance, high performing timber sash windows for the renovation of the Bryant Building in London’s Shoreditch.
London Box Sash Windows selected their unique Accoya product, ‘50 Year Sash Windows’, and produced 45 windows comprising of 24mm 4/16/4 double glazed, low E glass units. The frames were finished with Teknos ‘Graphite Black’ low maintenance microporous paint.
Jack Ellis, director of London Box Sash Windows said; “The windows provided the ideal solution for Ben Adams Architect as they are covered by Accoya’s 50 year guarantee against rot and decay. The stability and durability of Accoya combined with the low maintenance paint from Teknos, means there is very little up keep required. In addition, the paint should last for up to two to three times longer on the Accoya frames than ordinary timbers frames.
He added: “Shoreditch’s new-found status as London’s creative hub made this a particularly exciting project for London Box Sash Windows to showcase our Accoya product offer. Moreover the architects, Ben Adams, worked to exacting standards including exposing some magnificent original exposed brickwork, cast iron columns and the requirements for the windows were the same. We are delighted to have met and exceeded their expectations with our “50 Year Sash Windows” made solely from Accoya.”
