Another solution for laying deck boards correctly is the deck glider system. Because of the clearance between the substructure and the deck board (10 mm), deck gliders also prevent the stainless steel screws from shearing, in particular when hardwoods/tropical woods are used.
However, in contrast to the distance strip, the boards are fastened directly here, ie screw heads cannot be seen on the surface of the deck.
Many architects and builders have always wanted to have fasteners that are invisible in wood constructions.
This is why Eurotec has developed this innovative fastening system for assembling wood decks.
Through the indirect fastening without screw heads on the deck floor each deck becomes a pleasure to walk in bare feet.
To fasten the boards the gliders are first screwed onto the underside of the boards and then from above onto the substructure. This method of fastening avoids direct contact with the substructure.
The deck boards therefore have greater freedom of movement (through the deck glider).
