Deck fixings advice
Q-Deck Plus Timber-Tite heavy duty landscaping screws. Q-Deck Tite Plus stainless steel decking screws.
All Q-Deck products should be fixed or secured using recognised quality products. We recommend the use of screws to fix deck boards and bolts or structural screws to secure newel posts or structural elements of the deck. The raw material and the type of coating used to protect these from corrosion is vital.
This is why Hoppings recommend stainless steel fixings for the best results.
If galvanised fixings are used they should be of the hot dipped variety to help avoid corrosion. We do not recommend the use of pneumatic nail guns to secure decking boards.
Q-Deck-Tite Plus Stainless Steel Decking Screws are available for use with any Q-Deck decking but especially Q-Deck smooth Bangkirai decking. Q-Deck Lunawood decking features a special concealed fixing clips and stainless steel screws. 100 per box (includes driver bit).
Always follow the manufacturer's instructions when working with deck fixings.
