Nova - Real Wood Solutions
The ONLY Hidden Deck Fasteners that Allow Wood to Expand and Contract Naturally.
Perfect for Hardwoods like Ipe, Batu, Cumaru, Tigerwood & Mahogany.
Hidden Deck Fasteners & Wood Decking
Natural wood decking is subject to expansion and contraction in the width of the boards as a result of seasonal changes in humidity in your individual location.
We designed the ExoDek QuickClip hidden deck fastener specifically to allow for this natural swelling and shrinkage in the widths of individual boards after installation.
Typical deck boards can swell up to 3/16” in width. The ExoDek QuickClip hidden decking fastener will compress to absorb this expansion. When the wood later dries out,
the hidden fastener spring clip will move the boards back into place, centered perfectly, and securely fastened to the joist below.
