There are three reasons for using hardWood Clip™ fasteners: beauty, safety and practicality. In terms of beauty, the lack of visible screws, even spacing between boards, lack of board deterioration and warping gives wood decks a high-end look with built-in safety features. The design of the fasteners, materials used and installation method ensure that these features withstand the test of time, regardless of climate. hardWood Clip™ is also the only fastening system with a stainless steel insert moulded inside, which further enhances its mechanical resistance. In practical terms, hardWood Clip™ fasteners and SPAX® screws are quick and easy to install. They can save 30% to 40% (of non-structural) deck construction time and don't require any specific tools.
