Boardwalk, Falkirk


A sophisticated new look added by this venue’s new owners

Formerly known as The Wheelhouse, the popular Boardwalk venue near to the Falkirk Wheel has been completely revamped under new owners Cawley Hotels.
They were keen to create outdoor spaces for their customers to enjoy, but the wooden decks they had in mind would be time-consuming to maintain and become slippery during and after any wet weather.

We were looking for something that gave authenticity to ’Boardwalk’. The minute I saw the product, I loved it! It provides an instant aged look and adds to the sense of theatre for our customers. Thanks to its slip-resistance it feels very safe too. We’re so pleased with it, Millboard decking is also going to be installed at Duck Bay, our flagship property on the banks of Loch Lomond. Alan Cawley, Cawley Hotels

Putting the boardwalk into Boardwalk

Stylish, practical, safe
Millboard Weathered Oak decking provided the perfect solution for creating safe,
low-maintenance terraces and walkways that provided the authentic boardwalk look the client was after. It offers superb slip-resistance, even in the wet, so Boardwalk customers could enjoy it without fear of falling. And with no wood content at all, it will not rot, split or warp whatever the weather throws at it, and without the need for any maintenance beyond an occasional clean with standard household detergents.
But while its performance far exceeds that of wood decking, Millboard’s decking manages to look exactly like real wood, thanks to the unique way in which it is made. Every board is created in a range of carefully created moulds from painstakingly selected timbers, then hand-finished to create decking that is indistinguishable from natural wood.


The result

Boardwalk’s new look, of which the Millboard decking is an integral part, has proved a real hit with its patrons. So much so that Cawley Hotels now intend installing the same decking at their other properties, to create a distinctive – and distinguished – look that will become an integral element of their brand.
