Color Matched Screws for Composite, PVC and Hardwood Decking on Steel and Aluminum Framing
Applications and Usage Notes
Decking and Metal Dimensions: The 10 x 1-5/8" version of Deckfast Metal is designed for decking materials with an actual thickness of ¾" to 1" attached to steel or aluminum* up to 12 gauge or two 14 gauge joists doubled up. The 12 x 2-3/8" version of Deckfast Metal is designed for decking materials with an actual thickness above 1" and up to 1-1/2" attached to steel or aluminum up to ¼" thick.
*Note: When using the 1-5/8" screw with thinner gauges of aluminum, ensure that the wings shear off cleanly by applying slightly more pressure during installation.
Pre-drilling: Pre-drilling is not required, even in hardwoods.
Perfectly Set Fasteners: To achieve a clean and uniform appearance, with screws set at a perfect and consistent depth below the surface, use the new Smart-Bit Deck Screw Depth Setter.
Corrosion Information: The combination of 410 Stainless Steel and Epoxy Coating provides good corrosion resistance; however, Deckfast Metal is not recommended for use in applications exposed to salt air, near large bodies of water, swimming pools or other areas where corrosion is likely to occur. For these applications, use Grade 316 Stainless Steel fasteners.
DECKFAST® Fascia System
Composite and PVC Deck Fascia Fastening System
The Deckfast Fascia System is a complete solution to common problems caused by large amount of expansion and contraction of deck fascia boards. The system allows the fascia board to expand and contract around the fastener with changes in temperature and moisture.
