Composite and PVC Deck Fascia Fastening System
The Deckfast Fascia System is a complete solution to common problems caused by large amounts of expansion and contraction of deck fascia boards. The system allows the fascia board to expand and contract around the fastener with changes in temperature and moisture.
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.
1. Auto-Stop™ Mechanism
The stop collar spins free of the drill bit, prevent marring or burnishing of the fascia board surface.
2. Anti-clog Debris Cavity
The cavity gathers waste material, keeping it clear of the countersink
3. Pre-set Countersink
The Fascia Tool matches the head diameter and countersink depth of the Fascia Screw for the perfect hole and fit.
4. 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.
Follow the deck fascia board manufacturer's installation instructions. The Fascia System is designed for use with fascia boards from 1/2" to 3/4" thick. Use the Fascia Tool to pre-drill and countersink all holes in the fascia board. The hole is complete when the stop collar stops spinning. Set the fascia board in place and fasten with Fascia Screws. Drive screws until flush with the fascia board; do not over-tighten. The fascia board should hang from the screws to allow for expansion and contraction.
5. T-20 Star Drive Recesses
6. 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".
7. Type 17 Auger Tip
For faster, easier entry; helps prevent splitting of treated lumber.
