The Future of Decking

We spend thousands on beautiful wood for our decks and then screw the boards in place. Who wants the focus of their deck to be unsightly screws?

Finally, there is a product which allows the wood to be the focus of your deck and not the screws.

EasyClip is the future of wooden decking, with its registered design allowing for a smooth, screw-free deck surface. Children and bare feet can roam carefree. No longer will you worry about injury caused by exposed nails or screws.
The EasyClip fasteners are hidden between the boards, making them almost invisible. This not only enhances the aesthetics of your deck but also contributes to improved safety.

The EasyClip system is easier and faster to install than any other system, saving you time and money. EasyClip fasteners are durable, UV resistant and resistant to most chemicals. Your deck will last longer and stay beautiful for years without being damaged by screws.

Traditional Screw Based Methods

Unsightly, expensive water trap

Screws have for years been the preferred method of affixing wood in decking applications. The straightforward logic of one screw per anchor point makes sense, but the trade-offs are simply too great, both aesthetically and structurally. When one considers the cost of a wooden deck, both materials and labour, it soon becomes apparent that using screws no longer gives lasting value.

Having worked in the wood industry for many years, we saw the need for a robust alternative to screws that needed to:

 

  • Look more attractive than screws and plugs
  • Impact less on the integrity and water resistance of the wood
  • Cut down on installation time, while maintaining perfect spacing

EasyClip, the result of years of observation and design fulfills all of these requirements, and beats screw-based decking convincingly from any viewpoint.

 

 

Fungus and rotting

Screws by their very nature damage the wood, on the side most exposed to the elements (and peoples' eyes!), most importantly, the holes created by the screws allow water to collect within the wood, keeping it damp, and allowing rot to set in. This reduces the strength of the wood, leading to loose deckboards, and ultimately an ugly, unusable deck.


Incorrect installation using screws also poses its own set of problems: an inexperieced fitter, or even a poorly placed screw can result in cracking of the deckboard along its grain, a screw going in slightly skew results in a slightly protruding screw head - unsightly and dangerous. Correct usage of screws is a very skilled process that takes up to 3 times longer than installation using the EasyClip system. Screws must be countersunk, plugged and sealed - a labour-intensive process that can never match the aesthetics of using the EasyClip (which is infinitely easier to install).
