Product Features

PVC/Composite Tool

Auto-Stop™ Mechanism
Once target depth is reached, the Auto-Stop™ mechanism inside the tool disengages the driver bit and stops the screw from driving further, preventing the screw recess from stripping.
Free Spinning Stop Collar
The free-spinning stop collar is fitted with a rubber O-ring to prevent damage to the work surface.
Special bits for Deck and Trim Applications
Driver bits used with the PVC/Composite Tool are replaceable. There are two types of driver bits: DECK bits and TRIM bits, each optimized for their specific application. Both PVC Tool packages and PVC Deck/Trim Kits include spare bits.

Fasteners

Stainless and Epoxy Coated Star Drive Fasteners:

Epoxy Coated Carbon Steel, Grades 305 or 316 Stainless Steel screws are available in various lengths (2" - 3"). All screws feature a star drive recess and are ACQ approved. When driven below the surface with the PVC Tool, both fasteners create a perfect hole for the plug without pre-drilling.

Plugs
Plugs are made from actual deck and trim board material, so the colour and grain match perfectly.

Starborn Industries Deckfast metal screws

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
Starborn Industries Deckfast fascia screws

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.

The precisely engineered Deckfast® Fascia System includes the Fascia Tool and specially designed, color coated, Fascia Screws available in Headcote® stainless steel or epoxy coated carbon steel.
The Fascia System is designed to accommodate a significant expansion and contraction with many composite and PVC deck fascia boards. The pre-drilling tool creates an oversized hole for the Fascia Screw so that the fascia board hangs from the screw and can expand and contract without putting a large amount of force on the fastener.
Follow the decking manufacturer's recommendation when selecting stainless or epoxy coated fascia screws. In general, for applications where either corrosion or substantial amounts of expansion and contraction of the fascia material is a concern, use stainless Fascia Screws.
The Fascia System has been evaluated and approved by major decking manufacturers. See decking manufacturer's installation guides for changes to application instructions - with the improved performance of the Fascia System (compared to standard deck screws used to install fascia); fewer fasteners may be required.
