ACCOYA STARS IN SUSTAINABLE GARDEN AT 2009 RHS HAMPTON COURT PALACE FLOWER SHOW

Sustainable timber product Accoya® is to be featured in the first ever 'Sustainable Gardens' category at this year's RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July.

Sussex-based timber and joinery manufacturing business Westgate Joinery is co-sponsoring 'The Rain Chain' garden, both detailing and constructing its house wall backdrop. Because of Accoya's credentials for sustainability, durability and dimensional stability, it is the natural choice for cladding and decking in 'The Rain Chain', which features a house and urban rain garden set in a flood risk zone.

The Accoya-clad house wall backdrop will be innovatively recycled after the show - it has been designed to be rebuilt as a unique Summerhouse with a green roof. It features Westgate Joinery's Accoya casement window which carries an 'A' rating under the BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council) Energy Rating Scheme.

The Summerhouse will be sold by online auction to the highest bidder, with 50% of the proceeds donated to Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres. Prospective bidders can obtain full details and place their offer at http://www.westgatejoinery.co.uk/summerhouse.htm from 12 June 2009. The closing date for bids is 12th July 2009.

The Rain Chain garden is co-sponsored by Hadlow College, one of the UK's leading land-based colleges and the holder of numerous medals and awards and is designed by ex-student Wendy Allen. "Accoya was the clear winner when choosing a timber product for this garden", Wendy explains. "It is FSC approved, has a Class 1 durability rating with a 60 year life expectancy, is non-toxic, fully recyclable, does not warp or swell - and looks great. Westgate Joinery have provided us with a unique feature built to a superb standard."

David Pattenden, managing director of Westgate Joinery, says that "Accoya is the culmination of years of extensive engineering, product testing, field testing and market review by leading scientists whose aim was to create a more robust and sustainable material''. He adds: "The reaction of users and specifiers to this exceptional material has been very positive and an appearance at Hampton Court will raise awareness of this modified wood. With its impeccable environmental and performance credentials, we firmly believe Accoya is set to become the industry standard for exterior applications, and was an obvious choice for this project."

Hadlow College's director of finance and resources, Mark Lumsdon-Taylor, comments "We are delighted to be co-sponsors of a garden that is featuring in the new 'Sustainable Small Gardens' category - especially as the designer is an ex-student. We are proud to be a leader in 'sustainable development' and passionately advocate the importance of fulfilling the widely used definition of sustainability: 'development to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs' ".

To see Accoya in action, tickets for the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (7th - 12th July 2009) can be purchased from http://www.rhs.org.uk
