Millboard

A revolutionary PLASTIC FREE decking product, made in the UK. Looks like real timber but without the maintenance! Forté are the exclusive distributors for Millboard decking in New Zealand.

What is Millboard? 

Millboard is a premium UK-made decking product which is changing the face of decking as we know it. Millboard has a high-tech core together with a rubberized surface which is moulded from real timber and finished by hand, resulting in an incredibly realistic look that captures the beauty of real timber. But unlike traditional timber - which needs regular on-going maintenance like oiling & sanding to try and stave off rotting, mould, stains, warping, cupping, fading, splinters & a host of other undesirable effects - Millboard is totally different! 

What Makes Millboard different? 

Millboard decking is made from a revolutionary Polyurethane resin, reinforced with mineral fibres, which retains the beautiful look and feel of wood, but without the maintenance needed to keep it that way.  Each decking board is moulded from carefully selected oak samples that showcase the beauty of natural wood grain, then hand-tinted by craftsmen for a perfect real-wood look. The result is decking that is virtually indistinguishable from wood in appearance, but far superior in performance. It doesn’t rot or warp, and its UV stability resists fading. With no wood content, there’s nothing to encourage algal growth either.

To add to its easy-to-live-with qualities, each board has a Lastane® surface layer which is both non-porous – so spills don’t leave stains – and highly slip-resistant, even in the wet. There’s no need to spend time applying expensive, often environmentally-unfriendly treatments to keep it looking beautiful, either. Just an occasional wipe over with standard household floor cleaners is all that’s needed.

A FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY

Millboard decking and the processes used to create it have been rigorously tested to ensure there is minimal impact on the environment.  Millboard is the first premium outdoor flooring company in the world to have its carbon footprint independently verified and UKAS accredited, to the international standard ISO 14064-1 Verified Carbon Footprint Assurance Mark – 1.31kg/CO2 per m2.
Millboard decking puts no pressure on the world’s hardwood forests, and its durability also leads to fewer demands on global resources.  Its boards require minimal maintenance, and there’s no need to use potentially harmful cleaners or preservatives.
