How to build a deck: traditional hidden Fasteners vs EasyClick System by iDecking Revolution Published: 04 May 2016 Building a deck is not the easiest task in the world! It still requires master deck builders to take care of that... There’s always some brave handyman who, after some research, loves the do it yourself world and we believe that nothing is impossible. Today we want to compare the classic hidden fasteners system with iDecking’s EasyClick innovative installation system. Now let’s go through some useful detail about the two systems and try to understand what are the benefits of a fast and safe installation. Traditional HIDDEN FASTENERS Decking System Definitely a cool way to get the screws out of sight, but they’re gonna be still there! But make sure to have A LOT OF TIME to dedicate to this job, you need to be focused, concentrated and... What if you need to remove a board once the deck is finished? Perhaps at the centre of your deck? NIGHTMARE !!!!! All you have to do is “just and simply” start from the nearest perimeter, take out all the boards till you reach the one you desire to remove, replace it, and re-install everything! Some pirates use to pull the board out and then face fasten it... (forget about that!). The real problem is given by screws... they won’t hold forever! And despite being a time waster thing, it force you to structural maintenance every single season (this depends on the kind of wood/material and screws you use). When the screw fails, the board lifts up, this is not just bad looking, is even dangerous especially if you have kids... just to give you a few examples: iDecking’s EASYCLICK innovative decking System EasyClick is the innovative system which allows you to install iDecking Revolution boards simply using your feet. No need to use any nails, screws, drills, spacers or “obsolete” clips. The EasyClick system helps ensure a quick and simple troublefree installation. EasyClick is essentially comprised of an understructure “rail system” which comes with pre-installed and pre-spaced patented EasyClick nylon clips. Our patented grooved decking boards are then simply pressed and locked in place. The system can be used both for Wood and for Composites such as DURO and ETHERNO (Carbonized Bamboo). What are the highlights of EasyClick system?
