Deckfast® Composite and PVC Deck Fascia Fastening System
The precisely engineered Deckfast® Fascia System includes the Fascia Tool and specially designed, color coated, Fascia Screws available in Headcote® stainless steel or epoxy coated carbon steel.
The Fascia System is designed to accommodate the large amount of expansion and contraction that can occur with many composite and PVC deck fascia boards. The pre-drilling tool creates an over-sized hole for the Fascia Screw, so that the fascia board hangs from the screw and can expand and contract without putting a large amount of force on the fastener.
Fascia Screws feature star drive recesses and are ACQ approved. Follow the decking manufacturer’s recommendation when selecting either stainless or epoxy coated fascia screws. In general, for applications where either corrosion or especially large amounts of expansion and contraction of the fascia material is a concern, use stainless Fascia Screws.
The Fascia System has been evaluated and approved for use by major decking manufacturers, including Trex® and DuraLife™. See decking manufacturer’s installation guides for changes to application instructions – with the improved performance of the Fascia System (compared to standard deck screws used to install fascia), fewer fasteners may be required.
- T-20 Star Drive Recesses
- Color Matched Stainless Steel and Epoxy Coated Steel
Fascia screws are available in a wide range of colors to match popular decking products. Stainless Fascia Screws are 9 x 1-7/8″. Epoxy Coated Fascia Screws are 10 x 1-7/8″.
- Type 17 Auger Tip
For faster, easier entry; helps prevent splitting of treated lumber.
- Free Spinning Stop Collar with O-ring
The stop collar spins free of the drill bit, prevent marring or burnishing of the fascia board surface.
- Anti-clog Debris Cavity
The cavity gathers waste material, keeping it clear of the countersink.
- Pre-set Countersink
The Fascia Tool matches the head diameter and countersink depth of the Fascia Screw for the perfect hole and fit.
- Pre-set Shaft length
Together with the countersink, the overall hole depth is designed for use with fascia boards from 1/2″ to 3/4″ thick.
