Metrolinx choice on selecting Accoya was due to its great natural appearance, low life cycle costs and Accoya’s 50 year exterior warranty.
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. This is everything that Metrolinx needed and wanted! The Accoya wood components for this project were processed at Geometrik Manufacturing in West Kelowna, British Columbia.
