Face-fixing options – for square edge boards
Pro Plug® Composite Deck Screw
A superior easy-to-install plug fastening system for an invisible face fix. The system includes epoxy coated carbon steel screws, a colour matched deck plug to provide an invisible finish and a PvC tool which drives screws to the correct depth without stripping the screw recess or damaging the deck board surface.
Colour Match Composite Deck Screws
These epoxy coated steel screws are used to install the square edge deck boards for a traditional face-fix. They are colour matched and come in three colours: Dark Brown (for use with Vintage Lantern, Lava Rock and Spiced Rum), Grey (for use with Gravel Path, Island Mist and Pebble Grey) and Light Brown (for use with Tiki Torch and Torino Brown).
Deckfast® Fascia Screws
These colour match screws are designed to accommodate the expansion and contraction that can occur with fascia boards. They are installed using the pre-drilling fascia tool which is available separately – see below.
Deckfast® Fascia Tool
The pre-drilling deckfast® tool creates an over-sized hole for the fascia screw, so that the fascia board hangs from the screw and can expand and contract without putting a large amount of force on the fastener.
Trex square edge boards require traditional screws for installation. However, a Trex hideaway groove cutter can be used to route a groove into the side of any traditional board to accommodate the hidden fastening system. This is ideal for starter boards and steps.
