CLIP SYSTEMS

CLIP SYSTEMS

One accessory you will require for complete and effective assembly of your deck will be deck clips. Although everyone knows that deck clips are part of your deck, no one wants to see them. This is as true when it comes to deck clips for composite decking as for any other type of decking installation.

Fortunately, our composite decking clips are designed to be totally hidden deck clips. These concealed deck clips, two for each board, support and hold your deck together without creating an unsightly break in the appearance of your deck construction. We have hidden deck clips available to fit all of our board systems, in 304 stainless steel, 304 stainless steel with black powder coating and TPO plastic.

TYPES OF HIDDEN DESK CLIP SYSTEMS

We offer mini gap system clips with CEC clip and locking clip mechanisms, T-Clip system clips with CEC and locking clip mechanisms or starting clips.

Our mini gap desk clip systems allow only a 3/64-inch gap between boards that is nearly undetectable, providing a virtually seamless look. The T-Clip system allows a 7/32-inch gap that creates a classic deck look with the clips themselves still completely undetectable.

CEC VS. LOCKING CLIPS VS. STARTING CLIPS

You will choose need both CEC clips vs. locking clips in your installation but where they go will depend upon the conditions surrounding your deck. Locking clips completely lock down and secure your boards so that they do not move at all once clipped in. CEC, or control expansion & contraction clips, have some give to allow the board to expand or contract. Starting clips, also called start clips or starter clips, are clips you will use for the boards at either end of your deck, where the deck “starts.”
