The latest offering from MyDek is the stunning Luxura® range of non-combustible decking boards. These are created using a unique, high-density, mineral-fibre compound developed by Blazeboard. A special formula is used to create durable, low maintenance and non-combustible boards from a reinforced calcium silicate composite. Luxura® brings the aesthetic of hardwood timber, adding a natural look and feel while delivering outstanding performance.
What Makes Luxura® Special compared with Other Non-Combustible Decking Solutions in the Market?
Luxura® is made with a unique high-density material that can be both drilled and machined like hardwood timber. That said, it is also a lot cleaner and easier to cure compared with stone or porcelain. Luxura® is also highly resistant against scratching, wear and tear and is capable of enduring extreme weather conditions. The natural colouring of the material is the same all the way through the product so even in the event of accidental damage to the top surface there is no external coating layer that will need to be repaired. Light surface damage can even be removed with a medium grit abrasive paper.
The installation process of Luxura® is fast and simple as it uses a non-combustible fixing clip system. It is screwed directly onto the subframe, clamping the boards via a neat groove in the side so that fixings are invisible. If necessary, boards can also be drilled and fixed using stainless steel countersunk screws.
Additionally, the unique material compound that is used to create Luxura® is impregnated with a special invisible sealant. This makes the range completely stain resistant and easy to clean and maintain. It also has outstanding slip resistance properties.
Luxura® feels and sounds as solid to walk on as stone or concrete, and therefore creates a high-quality user experience with a material that will endure for decades to come.
