Luna Comp

Luna Comp

LunaComp is an innovative wood composite decking. It is manufactured with a unique patented process using Lunawood thermally modified wood fibre and recycled polymer.  LunaComp is produced by the Finnish company Lunawood Ltd, the world's largest and leading producer of Thermowood.

MBM Speciality Forest Products are proud to have exclusive distribution rights for LunaComp throughout the UK.

Background

The UK has witnessed a steadily increasing demand for decking over the last 25 years in both domestic and commercial applications.  As our market evolves, new decks are being installed and old wooden decks are being replaced. The consumer has become increasingly discerning, requiring low maintenance, attractive design and durability.  To meet these evolving demands, a number of developments have occurred and one of the most successful has been the introduction of wood composite decking.

Wood composite deck boards have been widely used in Europe and North America for many years and are now gaining increased popularity in the UK.

LunaComp used their Scandinavian experience and technology to develop an ideal decking material.  They took a unique blend of Thermowood fibre and polypropylene  to produce an attractive deck board.  By utilising 65% Thermowood fibre, the deck board benefits from both greatly enhanced stability and durability. These two fundamental advantages set LunaComp apart from other WCP on the market.

The Lunawood content does not readily absorb moisture, is very stable and carries a BRE endorsed 30 year service life expectancy.  The qualities of Lunawood are incorporated into LunaComp.

For more information on the benefits of Lunawood, please see our Lunawood page on this website.

Further information

In service performance

Once laid as a deck, LunaComp will fade initially upon exposure to sunlight and once the initial fading has taken place the colour will settle to a constant shade.

The surface tends to mark with abrasion such as that caused by the scraping of furniture legs - it is a wood-based product and still exhibits some of same characteristics as the natural timber from which it is made.

Care needs to be taken during installation with normal building site conditions. Cover sheets and walking boards should be employed and not dragged across the new deck surface.
