Accoya® wood is a high technology wood which is more durable than teak, redwood or hardwood. It is sustainable, dimensionally stable and highly reliable. Accoya® has been developed to have performance properties that match or exceed those of the very best tropical hardwoods and is made only from fast growing, sustainably-sourced wood. It is non-toxic and, because it is so stable, it is easy to maintain which has both financial and significant environmental benefits. It also boasts superior resistance to the effects of UV exposure meaning that the natural appearance of the wood is retained for longer.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwdRUXKZE2E
