Guinness World Records has certified a window that is constructed largely from Accoya wood, as the biggest wood and metal window in the world, according to reports.

With certified Class 1 durability and numerous green credentials, Accoya wood was the  choice of material for Mr Rüdiger Baumann, of Baumann Holzhandel GmbH, when he commissioned students from the German Academy for Glass, Windows and Cladding to construct the largest window.

“We are delighted to be part of this record-breaking build,” said Sylvie Froger, marketing manager at Accsys Technologies, “Using Accoya wood for the world’s largest window is great testament to the legitimacy of high technology wood as a material for use in applications where weathering, durability and thermal conductivity are a must.”
