The Twin System Clip – for the hidden fastening of decking with grooved sides

The system clip is placed between two wooden decking boards before being secured within the board groove using a stainless steel clamping plate. This plate is then attached to the aluminium substructure using a drilling screw between the joints. The spacer domes ensure uniform joint spacing from board to board. (The product comes with the clip and a screw).

Information on Working with Wooden Decks

  • Pilot-Drilling – The best method for working with problematic woods. This mostly includes types such as hardwood and tropical woods, however some coniferous types can have a tendency to crack easily. E.g. Douglas fir. The pilot-drilling method prevents the wood splitting, but you must always ensure there is a minimum of 6mm in edge distance at the end of the board.
  • Always take into consideration extreme fluctuations in wood properties within the same type of wood as the sources can vary significantly.
