Millboard’s Enhanced Grain and Weathered Oak decking products have achieved certification for use in Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) areas across the country. 

With the increasing frequency and severity of wildfires, having WUI-certified decking products is necessary for homeowners looking to build in regions prone to fire. The WUI refers to areas where human development meets natural landscapes, creating a significant risk for wildfires. 

Millboard’s composite decking materials have undergone rigorous testing to meet the stringent requirements for the certification. The decking materials are made from polyurethane resin with mineral stone flour commonly referred to as resin mineral composite (RMC). It is unlike wood plastic composites (WPC) which can absorb water and swell, causing algae to grow on the boards, and attract pests. Millboard decking contains no wood or plastic.

“We want to help you provide those moments with your friends and family that enrich living life outside, with beauty and quality,” said Martin Stevenson, marketing director of Millboard. “Our team remains committed to delivering innovative products that exceed customer expectations.”

Key features of Millboard’s WUI-certified decking materials include: 

Fire-resistant properties: Millboard’s composite decking materials are engineered with fire-resistant technology, providing a crucial barrier to slow the spread of flames.

Durability: Designed to withstand the challenges of wildland environments, Millboard decking materials offer exceptional durability, ensuring long-lasting performance in the face of changing weather conditions.

Low maintenance: Millboard decking requires minimal maintenance.

Esthetic appeal: In addition to their protective qualities, Millboard’s decking materials boast a wide range of styles and finishes, allowing homeowners to enhance the beauty of their outdoor spaces.

Millboard continues to contribute to the safety and resilience of communities facing the threat of wildfires. This WUI certification underscores the company’s dedication to providing innovative solutions that address the evolving challenges associated with urban-wildland interfaces.
