Frequently Asked Questions
What is Millboard Decking?
Millboard is the only decking hand-moulded from natural timbers, making it the most realstic composite decking available. Unlike timber, Millboard decking is virtually maintenance free, is highly slip and stain resistant and won’t rot from fungal decay or warp in the way that timber can.
ToughThe unique Lastane layer resists scratches and stains and is designed to withstand more demanding outdoor environments than timber can.
EnduringThe dual-tone Lastane surface is hand tinted using pigments designed to replicate the look of natural timber
SaferMillboard is wood-free and non-porous, which means high resistance to algae growth and excellent anti-slip properties.
LighterMillboard's unique closed 'cellular' internal structure reduces weight while maintaining strength.
StrongerThe structural core is a blend of natural minerals bonded in a polymer resin with long fibre reinforcement for added strength.
DurableMillboard decking is solid, not hollow. This makes it strong and means it won't warp, rot or harbour insects and pests like timber would.
If you are an Architect, Specifier or a Builder we also have Architect's Sample Packs available which showcase the full Millboard composite decking range.
If that wasn't low maintenance enough, unlike traditional timber or even common Wood/Plastic composites, Millboard decking also doesn't contain any timber, flour or husk fibres (which all have sugars in them), so Millboard will not host algae or mould growth.

Buyers AwarenessWith Millboard's wide range of colours, you can choose what is best for you. As with all products, the darker colours will feel hotter underfoot in sunny exposed locations. If this is an issue, opt for lighter colours for such locations.
To recreate the aesthetic of natural colour variation, Millboard intentionally adds secondary toning colours. There may be variance within the same board or from board to board in colour tone. This means that samples cut from boards may vary from the general colour of the boarding.
Whilst every care is taken to ensure consistency some colour variation from batch to batch may occur. To avoid this, we recommend that you order all you need in one delivery. If you do have different batches it is best to mix the batches to blend the colours.
As with all things constantly exposed to ultra violet light and all weathers, colours will tone slightly in time, this is normal for decking. On delivery if you find the colour unacceptable or believe them to be defective in any way, do not install the boards.
