Millboard Decking Collections
December 26, 2023
Millboard maintenance-free decking collections are now available in the U.S. The only decking hand-molded from natural timbers for unmatched texture and variation, Millboard decking is virtually indistinguishable from real wood, yet outperforms it on almost every level. Unlike timber boards, or even some conventional composite boards, Millboard decking features a strong polymer core that provides structure while also resisting the elements. These boards require minimal maintenance, are slip resistant, and won’t warp or rot from moisture decay, algae or harbor insects.
Millboard decking and siding products combine the natural beauty of real wood with the high performance of a hybrid of polyurethane. Millboard boards have a molded Lastane surface that is produced using the same pliable material as the soles of shoes, allowing the patented lost-head fixings to disappear into the board and boasts slip-resistance even in wet conditions. Beneath the Lastane surface is a polymer resin core, reinforced with fiberglass for extra strength and material stability, making Millboard one of the most dependable decking materials available.
Each board is carefully hand-colored in the realistic true-to-life tonal shades that are Millboard’s signature feature and with a variety of colors and textures available, Millboard appeals to all styles. The mold masters for the Millboard collections are carefully selected.
Millboard currently offers three decking collections:
Enhanced Grain – Molded from real oak boards for a textured look and feel, the Enhanced Grain collection’s contemporary design accurately showcases the subtle nuances of natural wood. Each of the eight available shades showcase their organic grain for a classic and refined look that is suitable for any application.
Weathered Oak — Beautifully aged in appearance, the Weathered Oak collection is hand-molded from real oak boards over a century old and colored by hand with authentic tones. Providing a timeless look, this collection retains its natural beauty and offers a surface with minimal maintenance and very high slip-resistance even in wet conditions. It is available in three shades.
Lasta-Grip — The Lasta-Grip collection combines the attractive appearance of the Enhanced Grain boards with a textured design that offers the ultimate slip-resistance, without the rough feel of conventional gritted strip boards. Perfect for areas where safety is paramount, but appearance is important. This collection is available in two finishes.
Millboard decking is complemented by Durafix screws, hidden fixings that make installing Millboard easy and allow the rubber-like topcoat to hide the hardware for an even more natural look. With Durafix there’s no need to pre-drill, countersink or use clip fixings. Simply screw them straight in just below the surface. Millboard’s innovative Lastane coating flexes back over the screw-heads, ensuring the screws are not left exposed. The screws are still accessible and can be removed later if needed.
