Hidden Deck Fasteners


QUATRO 65 | Deck Fasteners

Connecting system for decks, panels, and wood facades

The QUATRO 65 is the ultimate hidden fastener for decks, and paneling. Each set consists of 2 identical plastic spacers and 5 screws. These plastic spacers allow your boards to sit slightly above the joist, giving space for airflow. In turn, avoiding wood to wood contact will help extend the life of your deck, giving you many more years of enjoyment. The QUATRO 65 designed allows you to to space your boards to your liking. Not only is it used for decks, it is also used for wood panels and facades. The connectors is equipped with extra holes, allowing room for building imperfections in so that your project can still look perfect.

Features and Benefits:

  • Hidden from the first board to the last.
  • Constructive wood protection against moisture.
  • Optimal rear ventilation through the spacing between the boards and the joists.
  • Also suitable for wood board facades for which rear ventilation is needed.
  • Easy installation with mounting templates.
  • Allows shrinking and swelling of the wood.
  • UV and weather-resistant fiberglass reinforced plastic.

Tips:

  • Even the best connecting system cannot compensate for the poor quality of some timber. Please ensure that the timber is dry and in particular avoid timber from the core and spiral-grained boards.
  • The maximum recommended length of the boards is 3 meters (9.8 ft.).
  • Pre-drill, particularly with hardwoods, such as oak.
  • Follow the installation instructions of your timber supplier.
  • Recommended for spacing no smaller than 7 mm.

Z-DECK | Stainless Steel Deck Fastener

Stainless Steel Hidden Deck Fastener

The Z-DECK is a concealed, very strong stainless steel deck connector. Mounting is made easy through screwing horizontally in the board and vertically in the construction below. Because of the special shape of the Z-DECK connector, it allows the wood to shrink and swell, and fixes the boards stronger than a normal face screw from above.

Tests have shown a great performance of Z-DECK with hardwoods as well as tropical woods. The Z-DECK connector is concealed while allowing each board to be removed separately.

The Z-Deck connector has a special hook that hooks into a groove on the narrow side of the board. As the connector is hooked and screwed to the narrow side of the board, the connector with the board will be screwed to the joists below. At the same time, the screw allows shrinking and swelling between 4-6 mm.

Features and Benefits:

  • Hidden – from the first board to the last.
  • Very robust – can be used even for beach and boat docks.
  • Flexible – boards can be quickly and individually replaced.
  • Smart – protection of wood components through self-cleaning joint design.
  • Solid – better than visible screwing from the top.
  • Increased security – against twisting of the boards.
  • High quality – connectors and screws are made of quality stainless steel.
  • Superior – exceeds the requirements of Holzforschung Austria (Timber Research Center Austria).

Tips:

  • Even the best connecting system cannot compensate for the poor quality of some timber.
  • Please ensure that the timber is dry. Particularly, avoid timber from the core and spiral-grained boards.
  • The maximum recommended length of the deck board is 3 meters (9.8 ft).
  • Minimum recommended spacing in between boards is 7 mm (¼ inch)
  • Pre-drill, particularly with hardwoods, such as oak.
  • Follow the installation instructions of your timber supplier.
