Plas-Pro - the recycled, premium standard

A decking subframe is the structure that sits beneath your deck, keeping it supported and providing the base that your decking boards are attached to.

The key to a long lasting deck is a well constructed subframe comprised of high quality materials, set correctly in an appropriate foundation.

Plas Pro is Millboard’s premium 100% recycled subframe material and can be used alone or as part of our new DuoSpan landscaping subframe system. This all-weather, durable and flexible material is a non-rotting alternative to timber and is perfectly suited to spaces exposed to damp, such as jetties, pools, roof terraces and boardwalks.

What is Plas-Pro?

Plas-Pro is made from 100% recycled plastic. By using selected graded materials and cleverly engineered processes, Plas-Pro provides key environmental benefits and the assurance of superior quality performance.

Subframe material comparison

Each subframe option has pros and cons. Use the below table to decide the best option for your project. For more details on the benefits and drawbacks of each material, make sure you download the decking subframe guide.

DuoLift® Joist Pedestal

The ultimate support system for your frame. The DuoLift® joist pedestal system was designed to make installation significantly easier and to ensure successful outcomes. Providing substantial height flexibility within four stackable components, DuoLift® removes the common problem of having to order varying height pedestals for a single area. Height-adjustable from 15mm, DuoLift™ makes accurate height-setting easy, and is self-levelling from 35mm upwards.

With DuoLift®, you can quickly achieve a level support system that won’t rot, split or host algae. DuoLift®’s range of feet, pedestals, risers and cradles are even suitable for use in damp environments.
