Hidden fixing

Substructure: aluminium profile or wood

The deck gliders are fastened first of all to the

underside of the boards and then to the substructure.

The boards are fastened hidden. The fasteners cannot

be seen on the surface of the deck. The deck glider

functions as a means of joining and as a spacer.

 

Innovative solutions for all types of substructure and deck boards

Deck boards can be fastened in different ways, depending on the type of wood. We provide innovative solutions that enable your individual requirements and wishes for fastening your deck boards.

Hidden fastening of decking

Deck gliders

Deck gliders also prevent stainless steel screws from shearing through the clearance between the substructure and deck board (10 mm), above all when hardwood/tropical woods are used (see p. 21). However, in contrast to distance strips, the boards are fastened hidden, ie screw heads cannot be seen on the surface of the deck.

The gliders satisfy all criteria for fastening both wood and PVC boards.

T-Stick

The T-Stick is inserted between two wood boards and fastened in the board groove with a steel plate. The result is an attractive wood surface without visible screw heads. The board clearance is maintained automatically by the T-Stick. The clearance of 9 mm to the substructure enables good ventilation, and this prevents waterlogging. The service life is therefore affected positively.

If Eurotec‘s laying specifications are complied with, the T-Stick enables the boards to be adjusted easily before they are screwed down firmly. After screwing, the boards are absolutely firm. If a board has to be replaced, the system makes this possible even after the deck has been completed.
