* Joist spacing calculations and construction documents shall be prepared by a registered design professional to verify the suitability of the boards and supporting structure to resist necessary forces under varying environmental and physical conditions.
Millboards are manufactured with non porous material, therefore resists both algae growth and stains. We do not recommend the use of any kind of solvent, chemicals, abrasive cleaners, wax, oil or other household cleaners on Millboards as these may harm the boards finish. There is no need to pressure wash Millboards as dirt does not become ingrained. As the surface texture is non-porous, to remove dirt and grime wash with soapy water and brush with a broom before rinsing off, like internal flooring.
Urbanline Millboard should always be stored on a flat surface or level bearers a maximum of 400mm apart.

Millboard Durafix ‘lost head’ top fixing
That’s how easy the ‘hidden’ fixing is. Just screw straight in, no pre-drilling, counter sinking or fiddly clip fixings. The unique Lastane material closes back over the Millboard Trimhead fixing, leaving a virtually indistinguishable hole or at the most a very small entrance hole.
All our recommended board fixings have self-cutting tip and a torx drive head for ease of use. Ensure the head is 5mm below the surface. We believe the most secure and best way of fixing a board is through the top. It gives better anchorage and a more rigid stable structure. We recommend 2 fixings per joist and 3 fixings on the end of the wider boards.
- Stainless steel – no rusting
- Wax lubricated for easier fixing
- Lost lead ‘hidden’ fixing system
- Torx drive for added grip and power
- Easy to use – no pre-drilling or countersinking required
What is Millboard made of?
Millboard core is made from a blend of natural minerals, bonded with a polymer resin, plus added fibres for strength and durability.
What colours does Millboard Decking come in?
Millboard Decking is available in Coppered Oak, Golden Oak, Limed Oak, Smoked Oak, Jarrah, Vintage and Driftwood.
What size and length does Millboard come in?
Millboard Decking boards are available in two sizes: 176 x 32 mm and 200 x 32 mm. See Millboard table for more info.
Should I purchase all of my decking material at one time?
Yes. Purchasing all required decking material at one time is recommended as manufacturing runs can produce slightly different colours. Like most composites, individual Millboard Decking boards will have slight colour variations from piece to piece. Colour variation is not covered by warranty. We recommend purchasing extra material in case boards need to be repaired or replaced in the future.
What is the benefit of using solid composite decking over hollow composite decking?
It is easier to work with a solid product, because it frames like wood and feels more substantial on the deck.
What is the difference between Millboard and wood?
Millboard combines the look of wood with the durability of plastic. Unlike wood decks that require continuous maintenance, there is no need to apply weather protectants or water seal products to Millboard.
Why is composite decking more expensive than treated wood?
Composite decking is more expensive to manufacture. However, over time, the maintenance, repair and/or replacement costs associated with wood outweigh the initial investment in Millboard Decking.
How should Millboard be stored and handled?
You can store them the same way you would store any wood product.
Does Millboard Decking come with a Warranty?
Yes, our extensive 25 Year Residential Warranty gives you peace of mind against rotting, splitting, twisting and mildew decay. Millboards are hand crafted in the UK. Full details and terms and conditions can be found on our website.
Why is Millboard Decking virtually maintenance free?
Millboards are manufactured with non porous material, therefore resisting both algae growth and stains. There is no need to use any kind of solvent, chemicals, abrasive cleaners, wax, oil or other household cleaners on Millboards and no need to pressure wash as dirt does not become ingrained. As the surface texture is non-porous, any dirt and grime may be simply washed off with soapy water and brushed with a broom before rinsing off, just like internal flooring.
Is all Millboard Decking anti-slip?
Yes, in accordance with BS79.76 (Equivalent rating R11) slip resistance tests Millboards lead the industry with their high scoring antislip ratings even in wet conditions.
Are Millboard colours consistent and UV stable?
After an initial stabilisation the Lastane® two-tone finish will remain colour stable. As with all flooring it is best to buy all you need at one time as batches made may vary slightly. Otherwise we recommend blending different batches.
Does Millboard mark?
The Lastane® finish is highly resistant to scratches and food and drink stains.
What fixings should be used to fix Millboards?
Following extensive trials we recommend and supply ‘Durafix’ self drilling stainless steel screws. There is no need to pre-drill or countersink Millboards and the unique Lastane® material will self-heal leaving a virtually indistinguishable mark for a clean finish.
What about winter snow and ice?
A light application of granulated white salt can be used to help keep your Millboard ice-free, as rock salt can be very abrasive. A spring clean of soap and water with a soft broom is recommended when winter is over.
Can Millboard be used for other applications?
Millboard is extremely versatile and can be used to create not only beautiful decks, but balconies, roof gardens, boardwalks, planters, bridges, pontoons, seats, steps, and much more besides.
Can I put Millboard over concrete?
Yes. It is possible to install Millboard over concrete. First, check with your local building code authority for specific footing requirements. Standard joist framing is still required. Drainage and ventilation is necessary for best product performance; therefore we recommend shims to level the deck that allows a clear 50mm space between the bottom edge of the joists and the concrete.
Can Millboard be cut just like wood?
Millboard may be cut with a carbon tipped multi-purpose drop saw. Matching colour coating for exposed ends is available in 500ml tins. As the formed end of the board is lost when cut, these can be placed in less visual areas against a wall or edging profile.
What joist spacing do you recommend?
Joist spacing of 400mm is recommended for normal residential and light commercial use. On heavy commercial bridges, balconies, moorings, doorways and steps, use 300mm spacing. If you need to cut the Millboard down along its length, then reduce the joist centres accordingly. A minimum of 3 joists are required for any cut boards. All Millboards are reinforced for additional strength. For laying 45° to the joist we recommend max 300mm centres and 240mm on commercial applications.
How do I finish the edging detail?
We recommend that our purpose made edging is fitted at steps, and bullnosed or fascia boards at edges of decking to complement the aesthetic finish and performance of your deck. Fascia boards and edging come in rigid as standard, however flexible boards and edges are also available and can be curved to follow a maximum convex diameter of 3 metres.
