TREX TRANSCEND® DECKING FASTENER OPTIONS
TREX HIDEAWAY® HIDDEN FASTENING SYSTEM
In pursuit of the perfect deck, the Trex® Transcend decking range comes with a hidden installation option. When using the grooved edge decking boards, the Trex Hideaway fastening system installs between the deck boards, fastening them to the joists with no visible deck screw heads on the walking surface. This precision also creates perfectly consistent spacing between the boards of 5mm gaps for a flawless look across the entire deck.
The Trex Hideaway hidden fastening system includes a few simple components:
The Starter Clip
These are black stainless steel fasteners designed exclusively for Trex. These are used to install the perimeter decking boards.
Timber Structure Connector Clip
The self gapping connector clip is the main fastener component of the Trex decking hidden fastener system. It features a stainless steel deck screw already set in the universal clip for increased durability and easier installation. This clip is perfect for use with a timber frame.
Metal Structure Connector Clip
The self gapping connector clip is the main fastener component of the Trex decking hidden fastener system. It features a stainless steel deck screw made for metal substrates already set in the universal clip for increased durability and easier installation. This clip is perfect for use with a metal frame.
TREX STARBORN CAP-TOR COLOUR MATCHED SCREWS
Starborn Cap-Tor® xd screws are specifically designed to provide a clean, smooth and uniform finish in composite decking. Cap-Tor xd is approved for use with the Trex decking brand. Cap-Tor xd screws feature extra deep star drive recesses, undercut heads, reverse threads, tri-lobular shanks, Type 17 auger tips, and are 316 grade stainless steel.
In Australia we sell these screws to suit both a timber structure or a metal structure in approved colours to match the Trex Transcend decking range. These screws are perfect for face fixing your square edge boards.
It is highly recommended to install the screws utilising the Smart-Bit Depth Setter.
TREX KLEVAKLIP SNAP-LOC CLIP FASTENING SYSTEM
Trex have now released a hidden fastening system in conjunction with KlevaKlip - The Trex KlevaKlip Snap-Loc Clip System.
KlevaKlip Snap-Loc system is a multi-board fixed pitch decking system. This system provides a consistent gapping between the boards. The Snap-Loc clip allows the boards to be snapped into the clip by the weight of someone "walking the board into the clip". The teeth of the clip flex allowing the board to insert into the clip, and then "snap" into the grooves of the Trex decking board, locking into place.
This system is highly recommended for use on square or rectangular shape decks.
