TimberTech Deck Fastening
Deck fastening has always worked to keep up with advancements and changes in the industry. Traditionally TimberTech decking has been installed with TopLoc face screws, color matched to the composite or pvc decking, and is still a preferred method for some applications. Azek PVC was one of the first to utilize Cortex screws and plugs. Cortex truly revolutionized the way we understand hidden fastening with the ability to fill the top of a screw hole with matching decking plugs. Perhaps the next greatest advancement was the creation of CONCEALoc clips. Now days, TimberTech Composite Decking as well as Azek PVC Decking has grooved boards that utilize CONCEALoc fastening clips. Square edge TimberTech Decking Boards are available in 16 foot and 20 foot lenghts. are used for stairs and perimeter decking boards, and are fastened with face screws or a screw and plug system.

Both have a similar installation method and color selection and are of the highest quality composite railings available. Their top rail profiles are about the only thing that sets them apart.

Another available composite railing is the Trademark Rail Collection, featuring robust and almost oversized traditional railing made from composite. TimberTech has one series of aluminum type railing, Impressions Rail Express is a second generation aluminum railing that is both cost effective and versatile.
