We’re proud to have achieved Accoya ‘Approved Manufacturer’ status and look forward to utilising this pioneering timber within our range of British Standard (BS851188) certified Flood Resilience products.
M3 Floodtec have designed and engineered an Accoya timber flood door that has been independently tested to the latest British Standard, BS851188-2019 and now carries the BSI Kitemark for inward and outward opening timber doors.
The trees selected to make Accoya are sourced from fast growing, abundantly available, sustainably certified forests. It’s an alternative to slow growing and often unsustainable hardwoods, as well as many other carbon intensive and depleting materials such as plastics and aluminum.
Accoya offers incredible performance properties for flood resilience due to its resistance to water, extended durability, fantastic thermal properties and long life cycle.
Accoya brings unprecedented reliability for timber; it is checked and trusted not to visibly swell, shrink or distort. Highly durable, it withstands the test of any climate. And what’s more, it stays that way – a 50 year above ground, and 25 year below ground and freshwater warranty are testament to the fact that you can expect to enjoy your Accoya wood for many decades to come.
Finish with the ultimate consistency and quality
Finish sums up many of the reasons architects and manufacturers love working with Accoya – coatings look brilliant and last longer, generally require less maintenance saving time and money in the long-term. It also offers huge design freedom, with the ability to create a multitude of textural finishes such as smooth, charred and brushed, plus bespoke size and finish options for endless creativity.

Accredited by the FSC® and Cradle to Cradle Gold certifiedTM, it is the only construction material in the world to achieve C2C Platinum certificationTM for Material Health.
