INVISI-CLIP is DECKER’s hidden clip fixing system for DECKER Decking.
DECKER’s installation system for composite decks is easy, quick and hidden.
Our clips are fixed directly to the joists. Our boards are held in place through the clip which fits into the edge channel. This means there is no screwing directly into the decking boards and the clip system allows for slight expansion and contraction with temperature variations.
We have two decking ranges each with similar fitting systems; a plastic T clip as the preferred method and metal clips as an alternative, which are slightly different for reach range.
We slightly prefer the plastic Invisi-Clip because it is fixed with a single screw which can be fixed through the gap between the decking boards (roughly 5mm). This has advantages if you ever want to lift just one board at a later date.
However, both clip types are great for easy installation of DECKER decking.
In addition we have starter clips for the first row of decking boards, fixed to the joist with a flange to hold the first board’s channel.
We recommend using 20 clips per square metre, and sell the clips with composite decking wood screws in packs of 100, or boxes of 500.
Our preferred fixing method and the default for orders.
These plastic clips are designed to be screwed into the joist between two boards firmly in place.
Leaves a constant gap between the boards of 6mm.
Holds the board in place and is largely invisible between the boards.
Allows for some slide as boards expand and contract lengthways with temperature changes.
Available for DECKER PROTECT and PERLABOARD ranges.
For DECKER PROTECT only – These stainless steel clips are designed to be fixed directly on the joist before inserting the board edge, which rests on the flat base of the clip.
This gives a firm fixing but has a disadvantage when trying to remove a single damaged board.
These clips provide for very close board spacing, roughly 2mm between the boards.
Available in polished and black finishes. requires 25mm 6-8g timber screws.For
As an alternative to Plastic Clips, these Iron V Clips are designed to be fixed between the boards. These boards have a spring flange design to allow boards to be gripped firmly.
This Invisi-Clip system provides for a 4-5mm gap between the boards.
Available in a matt black finish.
Starter clips are stainless steel clips used for first and potentially the last board.
We provide these in packs of 10 because you don’t need many for a deck.
Last boards may need to be ripped because exact board width doesn’t fit. Either rout a channel in the ripped board for an invisible fixing or screw fix the last edge using a pre-drilled screw hole.
Available in black and silver and for PERLABOARD and DECKER PROTECT ranges.
These metal clips are designed to be fixed between boards at the centre of a board. These clips grip the board so that the board cannot move at the point of fitting.
These clips are recommended when board lengths exceed 4.5m.
Longer boards expand and ontract more with temperature variation. These clips keep the centre of the board in place whilst expansion and contraction occurs, ensuring that any butt join gaps between boards remain even when expanding and contacting.
Available in a matt black finish.
