Concealed starter fasteners enable quick and simple installation, creating a sturdy and attractive decking area with a smooth finish.
Starter fasteners are hidden clips, which secure the first and last board of every run to the joists so that you can use spacers (Concealed 3mm Fasteners or Concealed 6mm Fasteners) throughout the rest of the deck. Our fasteners ensure there is no unwanted movement in the deck and that it remains sturdy, elongating the decking’s lifespan. Use concealed starter fasteners in any decking project for a seamless finish, with nothing sticking up from the boards.
It is important to space joists 30cm apart, making sure the structure is sturdy and able to support the weight of the decking, and anything on top. We advise you pre-drill holes, as this makes the joists less likely to crack.
Depending on the style and design of your decking, the number of starter fasteners required can vary. However, as a rough guide, it is recommended that you purchase a box of 100 for every 25 square metres of decking.
