Composite Decking Hidden Fasteners

Traditional decking installations are used to drill in screws on your deck to fasten the decking board and materials to the joists below.

Hidden fasteners on grooved decking boards eliminate this and provide a more polished finish in which wood grain patterns can take centre stage in your design.

Hidden fasteners are highly advantageous. We have listed three key reasons below why Ultra decking will only supply hidden fasteners. Hopefully, this will help you make an informed choice.


The first and most important reason is safety. Composite decking is sensitive to temperature changes. They can cause the decking board to expand and contract. Due to this, we have added some safety features. For instance, we use hollow decking boards and hidden fasteners to allow room for movement in the deck board during the process of expansion and contraction.

This ensures no nails will be exposed over time, giving you peace of mind when children, pets or customers are using your deck area.


As hidden fasteners aren’t drilled into the deck board’s surface, they minimise water penetration, stopping possible future issues with mould or mildew.


Last but certainly not least is the look. The hidden fasteners provide a smooth finish and polished appearance. Because there are no visible screws, the natural beauty of wood grain patterns or tailored patterns you pick will truly take centre stage.
