Our Composite Decking Screws & Fixings – The FAQ’s
Can You Screw Composite Decking?
NeoTimber® advises against screwing composite decking boards across the main decking area and to only use their purpose-built decking screws when they are unable to use a clip (either at the edge of the deck or on the fascia of a deck area).
How Often Do I Install A Clip On My Decking?
We suggest you fix a clip at every intersection between a board and a joist as this guarantees a secure fixing. If you have stick to our guidelines as per our installation guide, this means you will fix a clip at every 250-350mm along its length.
Are Screws Provided With Clips?
Each of our box of clips come with the torx head screws, a relevant drill bit and a neat spacer to allow you to evenly space your deck boards are butt joins.
Can I Use An Alternative Supplier’s Clips To Fix NeoTimber® Composite Decking Boards?
We advise against this as our clips are purpose-built to allow for the adequate spacing between our NeoTimber® boards.
What Gap Do The Clips Create?
The side-to-side spacing between the boards is mainly dictated by the type of clip you opt for. Our 3mm stainless steel clip allows for a 3mm gap and our 6mm plastic FastClip allows for a 6mm gap.
