Hand moulded composite decking for your next project

Why choose hand moulded composite decking: Because Millboard is a unique non-wood decking which perfectly replicates the visual appeal of natural timber, it can boast superior performance. Hand-moulded in durable polyurethane, it has superior safety features with higher anti-slip ratings than conventional composite decking. The distinctive look of Millboard takes skill, impeccable attention to detail and patience to achieve.

Hand moulded composite decking: The journey begins with real timber, which we source from the local area and carefully select by hand, paying particular attention to the subtle nuances of the natural grain. These timbers are then used to create the moulds for Millboard, enabling us to replicate the natural character of the original wood in our unique composite material.

 

 

Our director, Jerry, handpicks each timber personally, sifting through hundreds of specimens until he finds the winning combination of characterful grain and distinctive knots. We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to seek out these original masters, often chancing upon them in the most unlikely places. The 100-year-old oak used to create our beautiful Weathered collection, was found in the rural countryside and originates from the floor of a French railway carriage. We were granted special permission to take moulds from these distinctive pieces of wood, which now form the basis of a truly unique decking material.

Self-levelling pedestals ideal for decks and terraces

Millboard self-levelling pedestals are ideal for podium decks and terraces. The innovative adjustable head ensures easier, faster and more stable installations. Their smart design allows pipe work and services to be laid beneath Millboard, whilst also improving breathability and reducing rot which can occur to roof timbers or a timber sub structure.

The weight of the joist is spread evenly, creating a sturdy support, and reducing pressure on the membrane. They’re available in incremental adjustable sizes, from 40-300mm giving you complete control of the height of the area. Read more.

 

The perfect fit and performance for your outdoor space.

Pedestals for podium decks and terraces

Most decking projects would require a support system to raise the terrace to meet the internal floor level. There are many adjustable pedestal systems available to help with projects like this. Most of them rely on a collar under the head as means of adjustment, with the head fixed to the thread. This means that the head follows the fall of the roof, with the decking being to a lesser fall, or near level, thus creating a pressure point on the pedestal head which can be transferred through the pedestal and onto the roof membrane.

An alternative pedestal would be one that has a ‘self-levelling’ head to get round high pressure points being unnecessarily created. A self-levelling pedestal ensures that the decking joist (or paving) remains level on the pedestal head and prevents unnecessary bounce or rocking of the joist or paving. Considerations should also be given to the size and rigidity of the pedestal base, to ensure low pressure points on the roof membrane.

With Millboard’s adjustable pedestals, their smart design allows pipe work and services to be laid beneath the boards, while also improving breathability and preventing rot. The weight of the joists is spread evenly, creating a sturdy support, and they’re available in incremental adjustable sizes from 300 up to 600mm tall, giving you complete control of the height of the area.
