Millboard Charred Oak (phased out) - replaced by Millboard Burnt Cedar


Channel 4's previous terrace decking had stained badly with time and algal growth made it slippery, dangerously so when wet. In refurbishing the terrace, the aim was to provide a surface that not only looked great, but was also safe in all weathers and required minimal maintenance.

Millboard supplied 370m² of Enhanced Grain decking in Charred Oak, together with matching fascia boards and square edging, and a Plas-Pro sub-frame. The decking was laid radially out from the building to fill the quarter circle shape of the terrace.

Channel 4 was delighted with the results. The new decking has lifted the terrace area from being a rather shabby, underused space to a supremely stylish location where staff can relax, hold meetings or entertain visitors. The Millboard decking requires no special maintenance and its anti-slip properties make it safe for everyone to move around on it with confidence. In the longer term, it will not rot or attract algae, so will maintain its looks and usability for many years to come.
