Lasta-Grip Decking

Application

Use Millboard decking for all standard outdoor flooring applications (e.g. in residential, commercial, education, healthcare, leisure and hospitality) including:


  • Ground level terraces/ patios;
  • Roof level terraces;
  • Balconies (subject to Building Control);
  • Podium decks;
  • Public spaces/ areas;
  • Pathways;
  • Boardwalks;
  • Pool surrounds;
  • Jetties/ pontoons/ marinas.


Installation:

For all applications Millboard decking boards to be installed with a 4 mm gap between the boards and a 1 mm gap at butt ends, to facilitate drainage. There is no need for a ventilation gap to be left under Millboard decking boards. The maximum unsupported overhang for the boards is 50 mm, each cut board must be supported by a minimum of three joists. Each board must be screwed down with 2 x Millboard Durafix® stainless steel screw fixings where a board crosses a joist, and 3 x Millboard Durafix® stainless steel screw fixings at the ends of the boards.


Ground level application (soft surface):

Millboard decking boards installed over DuoSpan 99 mm Joists and Beams, Beams supported by Plas-Pro Posts concreted into the ground. Installed with DuoSpan brackets to the recommendations set out in installation guide found on manufacturers website.


Hard surfaces application (roof terrace, concrete base):

Millboard decking boards installed over DuoSpan Joists, Joists supported by DuoLift joists supports onto a solid/stable base. Installed with DuoSpan brackets to the recommendations set out in installation guide found on manufacturers website.


Joist spacing:

The Lasta-Grip boards need to be supported at 400 mm centres for residential applications, for commercial applications, bridges, balconies and steps this needs to be reduced to 300 mm centres.

Description

A polyurethane resin mineral board, moulded from real oak master, and hand-finished, Millboard decking is slip-resistant, splinter-free, anti-static and its non-porous composition makes it resistant to algae and insect infestations.

UV and weather-stability, stain resistance and resistance to rotting and warping, make it a low maintenance product for use in all standard outdoor flooring applications.

To be used with Millboard Durafix® stainless steel screw fixings where extra slip-resistance is required, Lasta-Grip Decking has integral textured strips moulded into its surface, achieving the highest slip resistance. The Lastane® surface helps deaden footfall and furniture movement noise, making the decking the perfect choice for public places, commercial and leisure applications. The Lasta-Grip is also extremely easy to cut and work with compared to other grit impregnated decking and is available in Coppered Oak or Golden Oak colours.

The structural core of Millboard decking is a blend of natural minerals bonded in a polymer resin, with long fibre reinforcement for mechanical strength and durability. The top surface is a textured, resilient Lastane® layer which is chemically melded to the core and hand-tinted using 2K component pigments that resist fading and UV damage.


Features and benefits:

  • 100% wood-free and hand-moulded, on three sides, to give a real-wood grain representation.
  • Unique Lastane® finish provides low slip potential, and is resistant to scratches, food and drink stains, and everyday wear and tear.
  • Millboard Durafix® stainless steel screw fixings sink into the Lastane® material to achieve a virtually indistinguishable mark.
  • Non-porous composition makes it resistant to algae, insects and liquids (including fats, food, drink and urine).
  • No need to leave a ventilation gap when installing.
  • Manufactured under ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standards, ISO 14001 Environmental Standards and ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Standards.
