There are many reasons for choosing a Shadowdeck™ Hidden Fastener over more traditional methods. Here are just a few examples below.
The fastening holding power from the head of the nail is only 4mm
Nails and screws cause splitting and twisting to happen through the timber naturally expanding and contracting
Rusting nails and screws cause stains marks on your deck surface
Nails & screws penetrating the face side of your decking causes the timber to rot
The old technique of “Drilling, Nailing and Punching” takes a lot longer to install your deck. Nail placement is important to the finish and for the builder this increases creation time.
