Black Teflon Plastic Clips

Fishers Decking & Flooring’s Black Teflon Plastic Clips are highly sought after and widely used across South Africa and beyond. These clips are the most cost-effective option available on the market and have been successfully installed for over a decade without any product failure claims.

The clip measures 30mm in length, 11.5mm in height, and 4.5mm in thickness at the lip that fits into the recess or groove of the plank. The width of the clip is 18mm. Once fitted, the clip leaves a 5mm gap between the planks, which is an essential aspect of the deck’s aesthetic. This gap allows the planks to expand and contract as needed while maintaining their position.

The clip is secured to the deck structure material with a screw inserted into the screw hole. The pressure applied by the clip keeps the planks in place, and once installed, all clips and screws are hidden below the deck’s surface, creating a seamless look.

While stainless steel clips are sometimes used, they are typically reserved for specific applications. The Black Teflon Plastic Clip with the black screw is the best choice for most applications, providing superior aesthetics and functionality. Fishers Decking & Flooring is committed to providing its customers with the highest quality products and services, and the Black Teflon Plastic Clip is no exception.

Narrow Gap Stainless Steel Clip

The narrow gap stainless steel clip offered by Fishers Decking & Flooring is designed for specific applications, and should not be used for general decking projects. It is ideal for situations where a floor-like surface is needed, but the aesthetic of a deck is preferred.

For instance, if you are building a tented camp and require a heavy-duty surface with no gaps and a proper seal, this clip can reduce the gap between planks to a 2mm spacing that can be sealed with silicone. It is also suitable for a dance floor in a venue, as the narrow gap ensures high heels won’t get caught between the planks.

However, installing a deck with these narrow gap stainless steel clips takes longer and requires more labor, which can increase the cost. Additionally, if there is a problem with the deck that requires removing a plank or making changes to the framework, all planks in front or behind must be uplifted. The narrow gap between planks makes it difficult to access the screw holding the planks in place, as there is no space for a driver to fit between the planks.

Furthermore, these clips are three times the price of the black Teflon clip and require 26 clips per square meter, which can add up significantly on large projects. Therefore, it is recommended to use these narrow gap clips only for specific applications where their benefits outweigh the added cost and labour.

Silver Range Clip and Clad Wall Cladding Clips

Fishers Decking & Flooring is constantly expanding its product range to keep up with the evolving composite wood industry. The latest addition to our collection is the clip and clad wall cladding panelling system, which utilizes a specially designed stainless steel clip that is unique to this product.

Similar to our Gold and Diamond range wall cladding, this system boasts a hidden fixing application, resulting in a seamless finish with no visible gaps between the planks. For optimal results, our specifications require 25 clips and 25 screws per square meter, with the joist, support, and structure spaced at 350mm center to center. Please note that this system is only compatible with the designated clip and cannot be used with any other type of clip.

Fishers Decking & Flooring Fixing Screw Options

Fishers Decking & Flooring has all the correct screws you need to install our top-notch products. It is important that we know what framework you will be using so that we can quote on the correct screws. Fishers Decking & Flooring has three screw type options:

The Pan Head Self Drilling Tech Screw is an electroplated black screw made of 410-grade stainless steel. Its design makes it ideal for fixing screws that need to go directly through composite material without the need for a pilot hole. These screws are effective in penetrating steel up to 2.5mm thick and work well with the steel profiles Fishers Decking & Flooring sells. Primarily used for pergola and screening applications where it goes through the thinner profiles supplied by Fishers Decking & Flooring, this pan head self-drilling tech screw is 32mm long with a 4mm shaft. Its pan head has a rounded smooth top to ensure it sits on top of the material without penetrating it. Fishers Decking & Flooring takes longevity seriously and, as such, all their screws have hexagon heads to protect against potential damage or stripping of the screw head in case planks need to be removed.
