The Z-DECK is a concealed, very strong stainless steel deck connector. Mounting is made easy through screwing horizontally in the board and vertically in the construction below. Through the special shape of the Z-DECK, the connector allows the wood to shrink and swell, and fixes the boards stronger than a normal screw from above.

Tests have shown a great performance of the Z-DECK with hardwoods, as well as tropical woods. The Z-DECK connector is concealed, but every board can be removed individually.

The Z-Deck connector has a special hook that hooks into a groove on the narrow side of the board. As the connector is hooked and screwed to the narrow side of the board, the connector with the board will be screwed to the joints below. At the same time, the screw allows shrinking and swelling between 4-6 mm. The connector is hidden but each board can be removed individually.

  • Concealed from the first board to the last
  • Very robust and can be used even for beach and boat docks
  • Boards can be quickly and individually replaced
  • Optimal wood protection through self-cleaning joint design
  • More solid than visible screw connections from the top
  • Increased security against twisting of the boards
  • Connectors and screws are made of quality stainless steel
  • Exceeds the requirements of Holzforschung Austria

Tips:

  • Even the best connecting system cannot offset poor quality of some timber.
  • Please ensure that the timber is dry; particularly, avoid timber from the core and spiral-grained boards.
  • Recommended length of deck board: max. 3 meters (9.8 ft.).
  • Recommended spacing: starting at 7mm
  • Pre-drill, particularly with hardwoods, such as oak.
  • Follow the installation instructions of your timber supplier.
