Product description
The wooden decking board substructure is individually suitable for visible or invisible attachments of the decking boards. Distance
strip 2.0 is very well suited for visible attachments of decking boards. It works as a spacer and allows freedom of movement between panel and substructure. At the same time, it benefits the air circulation. Standard wood screws, such as Terrassotec screws,
are used for the screw connection of a wood substructure. Distance strip 2.0 reduces the risk of sheared off screws.
Distance strip 2.0 is made of hard plastic and is intended to prevent the stainless steel screws from shearing off. The shearing
is caused by the swelling and shrinking of the wood, the so-called working of the wood. This working of the wood is especially
pronounced in the transverse direction of the boards. The wood „wants” to take the screw with it, while the lower part of the screw
is still firmly seated in the substructure. Since hard and tropical wood is very hard due to its very high density, the screw does not
have a chance of pressing into the wood if the wood is working. If the screw breaks off due to this stress, this is called shearing
off. Distance strip 2.0 was developed in order to prevent stainless steel screws from shearing off. It creates a freedom of movement
of 7 mm between substructure and decking boards, which gives the stainless steel screws the opportunity to move together with the
wood

Substructure: wood

Deck substructures made of wood are suitable individually for fastening the deck boards with visible or hidden fasteners. The distance strip is particularly suitable for the visible fastening of decks, it acts as a spacer and enables freedom of movement between panel and substructure.

At the same time, it supports air circulation underneath the deck; if this is not done, the result is rotting.

Normal wood screws are used to screw the boards onto wood substructures.
