Blazeboard non-combustible decking unveils a secret fixing system

Having ticked all the regulatory boxes for high-rise residential use with flying colors:

  • CE marked (UKCA mark on its way)
  • Third party certified
  • A2,s1-d0 non-combustible
  • Durability tested
  • Slip resistance PTV 36+ in ALL directions in wet and dry

One of the unique advantages of Blazeboard has always been that it could be cut and shaped like hardwood and screwed through like traditional decking.  This is handy when you want that traditional hand laid look, and for refurbishment projects where it’s safer to exchange one board at a time.  This was enabled by Blazeboard unique ability to remain impervious to water and corrosion even when screwed right through.  We love the aesthetic of the colour-matched stainless steel self-drilling screws.

But Architects were calling for a system that had no visible fixings, for a clean look, and installers wanted even faster installation.  Now this has been achieved.  The Engineers at Blazeboard have come up with a board profile which fits a stainless-steel black clip.  This sets the board gaps during installation at a consistent 6mm gap, and the black stainless-steel clip is virtually undetectable between the board gaps.

After testing and refinement, this optional system is available now and is already being used for a valued client in south London.

As Blazeboard is the number one choice in the United Kingdom for non combustible decking, you can imagine that is it high time that we talk about the benefits of non-combustible decking.

Contrary to popular belief, there are many different types of non-combustible decking but the type we wish to talk more about today is millboard. But before we get into millboard, let’s talk about the general benefits of non combustible decking here at Blazeboard.

Benefits of all Non-combustible Decking

Like most non combustible decking there are some benefits that might be known or might not be such as:

  • Anti-slip
  • Rot proof
  • Anti-corrosion
  • Anti-static
  • UV retarded
  • Easy clean
  • Mould resistant
  • Low Maintenance

However, there are some benefits that you might not know of, these sorts of benefits you will only find out if you gave us a call or enquiry but we will let you know these little secrets. As we believe it is imperative that everyone is knowledgeable about the product that they are purchasing, as non-combustible decking is a great product and perfect for your home balcony.

With our Millboard decking you can find that there are a couple of extra benefits that come with this as well as the benefits mentioned above. These include but are not limited to the following:

  • Algae resistant
  • Hardwearing
  • Looks like real wood, without the drawbacks

As you can tell, Millboard is the most popular type of non-combustible decking and comes in a variety of different colour options. So, you can chop and change what millboard decking you would like whenever you feel like it. As Blazeboard gives our clients the freedom to choose what ever they wish when it comes to our incredible non combustible decking.

What Can You Expect with Non-combustible Decking?

If the benefits above aren’t enough to entice you then think about the endless barbeques in the summer, hot tub parties in the autumn and winter as well as the kids in their paddling pools at the end of spring.

Other than that, you have the ability to sit outside in the evening and watch the sun set with a glass of red and know that your non-combustible decking isn’t going to go up in flames!

But in all seriousness, millboard is the perfect decking for a family as you or your kids won’t be slipping and sliding everywhere on a hot summers’ day, as well as, in winter the only problem you will get is ice. Which as you can imagine is a normal weather in the British winter, salt is always a good choice when it comes to protecting your millboard balcony decking in the winter.

Being a perfect choice if you have a swimming pool or hot tub you really cannot go wrong when it comes to your millboard decking as it is also algae resistant as we mentioned previously. But, there is nothing worse than getting out of a pool a slipping half way down the deck. But with millboard, you won’t find that problem at all, as it is non-slip and comfortable when you walk on it barefooted.
