Millboard New Enhanced Grain Slim Board Decking Now Available from Outlive
Same beauty of real timbers and durability of other Millboard products in a narrower profile
MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. – MARCH 10, 2023
Outlive announces the expansion of Millboard products now available in the U.S., with the debut of the new Enhanced Grain Slim Board. This multi-use 126mm (4.96 in) decking board can be used alongside the standard 176mm (6.92 in) Enhanced Grain board for a unique design alternating every other board, in a random pattern, or the Slim Board can be used as picture frame edging or to define a certain area of a deck.
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 which 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.
Each board is carefully 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 Millboard Enhanced Grain Slim Board is molded from real oak boards with a smoother and more subtle textured look and feel that lends a contemporary design showcasing the subtle nuances of natural wood. Each of the seven available shades highlight the organic grain for a classic and refined look that is suitable for any application.
Millboard decking combines the natural beauty of real wood with the high performance of a hybrid of polyurethane. Millboard boards have a unique molded Lastane® surface which 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.
Millboard decking is complemented by unique Durafix screws. These hidden fixings 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 to 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.
The Millboard product line includes accessories such as matching flexible bullnose edging that continues the beautiful wood grain right round the edge profile to maintain the authentic wood look, and Touch-up Coating in nine colors to put the finishing touches on exposed cut ends. Designed to resist high wear points, the edging profiles and fascia boards come in all of the Millboard colors.
The Millboard DuoSpan subframe, made from 100% recycled plastics, and DuoLift support systems enable straightforward construction of complex decks, screening and landscaping structures. Providing a unique landscape construction frame, DuoSpan combines the strength of aluminum with the design flexibility of recycled plastic. This combination, assisted by slot-and-screw assembly, enable distinctive decking designs and easier installations for outdoor structures that would be difficult to achieve with most conventional subframes. The DuoLift joist support system provides substantial height flexibility within four stackable components, removing the challenge of various fixed-height pedestals over a single area. It also provides enhanced ease of installation in addition to superior load bearing. DuoSpan and DuoLift can both be used with a wide range of decking and siding materials.
Millboard products have been used to build pathways, bridges, feature and privacy walls, residential decks, planters, pond surrounds, pool decks, tabletops, benches and docks in addition to many other applications. Millboard products have a 25-year warranty unmatched competitive qualities, and endless possibilities.
