hardWood Clip™ is a quick and easy-to-install hidden fastening system that reduces your (non-structural) wood deck construction time by at least 30% to 40%.
The SPAX® self-tapping screw eliminates the pre-drilling and countersinking of screw holes required in traditional installations with visible screws. It even works with hardwood decks made from exotic species (ipe, cumaru, teak, bankirai, padouk, etc.).
The groove profile of boards is simple. It can be cut in a workshop along the full length of the board or during installation using a Lamello® type groove cutter at each point where the boards are fastened to the joists.
The spacer integrated into the fastener guarantees automatic and even board spacing.
What makes the hardWood Clip™ fastening system so unique is the fact that boards are screwed down to the joist at a 45° angle. This method firmly immobilizes them, which stiffens and secures the decking.
The other side of the board moves freely so it can contract or expand as needed without compromising the wood, while ensuring constant and even deck board spacing over time.
