Ipe Clip Kits

Ipe Clip Kits offer everything you need to get started on a Hidden Deck Fastener System. Black Stainless Steel Ipe Clips with a protective colored polymer coating, as well as all of the additional fasteners required for an Ipe assembly. Ipe clip kits contain Ipe Clips, Trim Head Stainless Steel Deck Screws, Ipe Plugs, Bits and spaces depending upon the kit desired.
Ipe Clips, also known as hidden deck fasteners are used to install the boards of a deck to the main beams. Ipe Clips are used with pre-grooved boards (sometimes called Ipe Wood) as part of a hidden deck fastening system. For boards that are not grooved, slots for these clips can be added quickly with the use of a biscuit joiner or router.
Each Ipe Clip attached a deck board to a joist or beam with the use of a 45 degree deck screw on one side. The clip’s polymer coating is colored, often as well as the screw, to be as inconspicuous as possible and provide a smooth, clean, finished look. The Included Deck Screws can come in either 305 or 316 stainless steel.


Hardwood Plug Kits

Hidden Deck Fasteners don’t always mean Ipe Clips. Deck Builders and Clients each have their preferences, and a deck without visible screws often means countersinking the pilot hole, installing the screw and then plugging the top of the hole. This process is also required when installing an Ipe Clip system for the start and end boards.
This method of finishing is often used to create a smooth clean finish that highlights the natural look of the wood. Matching wood plugs are used to create a sleek and hidden finish, however contrasting wood plugs are also used to create a premium luxury look.
Hardwood Plugs, often called Ipe Plugs, are used as part of a decking system. First, a pilot hole is drilled into the deck board with a 3/8 inch countersink to accept the wood plug at the end of installation. Next, a trim head deck screw is installed into the hole to face screw the board into a joist or beam. A strong adhesive, such as Gorilla Glue, is then applied on top of the installed screw, which is used to hold the finishing wood plug-in place.


Painted Head Deck Screws

Painted Head Bugle Head Deck Screws feature a flat head that has been painted to closely match the color of the wooden or composite decking boards being used in a deck installation. The purpose of the paint is to make the heads of the screws less noticeable, and create a sleek and smooth looking finish. Stainless Steel Deck Screws in this selection feature a notched Type 17 point for easy installation into deck boards and joists, as well as a shoulder with sharp coarse threads to pull the boards closely together and ensure excellent retention with a snug fit. The double countersink flat bugle head has 6 nibs; utilizes a 6 lobe star drive to reduce cam-out and increase torque; and comes as a chipboard thread screw with partial thread and triple spline (one at the beginning on the thread and two at the end of point).

 


Decking Tools and Accessories

Installing a wooden or composite Deck is no easy task, but these tools and finishes are designed to create a top quality deck by working smarter, not harder. Premium board straightening tools, Power Bits and Drill Bits designed to simplify and streamline the installation process of both boards and fasteners, as well as cleaners and oils to ensure a premium finish and maximize the life of any deck.
Decking Tools and Accessories are designed to work in as many applications as possible, whether the Deck be face mounted with screws or built using a hidden deck fastener system. Many of these items are formulated to be used on a wide variety of decking materials including wood, hardwoods, PVC and composites.

Star Drive Deck Screws have Arrived!

Stainless Steel Star Drive Deck Screws

Also Known as Torx, 6lobe, and Hexalobular Drive

 
stainless steel deck screws

Star Drive Deck Screws are here by popular demand! Star Drive Deck Screws are functionally the same as our standard Square Drive Deck screws, however they feature an unconventional drive style that offers many installation benefits including higher torque possibilities and more resistance to cam out than a conventional style like Phillips or slotted.
The “Star” drive style for screws (like many things in the industry!), goes by many names including Torx, 6lobe and Hexalobular and is characterized by having a fastener recess with six points of contact which allow for these benefits.

Star Drive Deck Screw


Stainless Steel Deck Screws in all drive styles feature a notched Type 17 point to help cut into the wood or composite boards being installed, as well as sharp cutting threads for stronger retention. Stainless Steel Deck Screws are used primarily in outdoor applications due to the corrosion / rust resistant properties of the metal, making them a good choice for long-lasting applications.

Stainless Steel Deck Screws

Stainless Steel Deck Screws

Stainless steel deck screws feature easy installation in wood and composite deck materials with their flat head and notched type 17 point. Our deck screws have a square drive preventing screw stripping for high torque saving time and money replacing stripped screws. Historically, deck screws have either a bugle or countersunk flat head flush installed with decking beams, posts, and boards. Our 305 and 316 stainless steel deck screws resist rust suiting exterior use. Stainless steel is a durable best deck material. For easy fastening, titanium nitride premium power bits are recommended.

Decking Post Bases

Decking Post Base

Designed anchoring to concrete, post bases hold vertical beams or posts to footings. 316 stainless steel post bases commonly work with stainless wedges for strength as a premier deck material. See our video demonstrating post base install! Post bases include a square washer (two for 8×8) securing the anchor and a stand-off plate covering the anchor head eliminating wood underside holes. Provides high uplift capacity.

Our post bases use 316 stainless steel resisting corrosion even in harsh environments.

Decking Post Caps

Decking Post Caps

Post caps secure wood posts to support beams. They are essential building and reinforcing decks, using 316 stainless steel nails maintaining product warranty since stainless suits deck material needs.

Post cap anchors have one-piece and two-piece adjustable designs in 316 stainless steel.

Decking Joist Hangers

As framing connectors, joist hangers support and set joist ends to beams or girders. Typically deck ledger boards anchor joists and hangers to framing. Stainless steel is an ideal deck material, being strong and corrosion resistant! Joist hangers form the floored parallel pattern on decks.

Stainless Steel Joist Hangers

In decks, hanger height should match joist depth used. Hole numbers indicate nails securing connections. Special holes allow double shear toe-nailing for very strong joist attachments. Correct installing keeps decks strong despite wood changes over time. Hangers come in standard, concealed flange, and skewed types in 316 stainless steel.

Avoid mixing metals; use same grade stainless steel hangers and nails. Only use nails with hangers.

Happy Decking!
