GAFFNEY, S.C., May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ipe Clip® Fastener Company is proud to introduce the Deck Tile Connector. As part of the DeckWise™ brand of decking products, the Deck Tile Connector gives builders and DIY homeowners an easy and affordable way to fasten hardwood decking tiles. The DeckWise™ Deck Tile Connector achieves both. With a retail price under $2.00 each, the Deck Tile Connector is the key to making a wood-backed deck tile surface even more solid and reliable.
According to Christopher Shope, Sales Manager with Ipe Clip®, "Many deck builders and homeowners like the way deck tiles made of 100% hardwood have the same strength and resilience as solid hardwood decking. The one thing that was missing was a fastening system that took moisture and color into account. This is why we created our deck tile fasteners with a pre-cut drain hole and offer three different color options. The drain hole helps prevent water from pooling around the corners of the deck tile. And, with three distinct color options, people with lighter-colored deck tiles aren't forced into looking at black gap spacers."
The DeckWise™ Deck Tile Connector system benefits include:
- Uniform gap spacing for a consistently attractive surface
- Improved drainage with pre-cut centered drain hole
- Simple to fasten over an existing wooden deck or concrete slab
- Easy score & snap system for edges and corners
- Engineered with chemical & UV resistant polyethylene
- Matte texture provides a more subtle look between gaps
- Available in our signature colors: Hardwood Brown, Shadowline Black, & Composite Grey
Chris Shope adds, "Deck builders have been asking for a convenient way to install wood-backed tiles. Now, all they have to do is screw into a worn concrete slab, or patio, and place these tiles in the pattern of their choosing. It's just a smarter way to install deck tiles."
