Starter Board

  • The first board laid on your new deck is referred to as a starter board. Oztuff “C” clips  allow you to accommodate the required 10mm distance from the wall/structure.  
"C" Clip

 Hidden Fixing

  • The Oztuff boards are designed to be used with both our ABS plastic or stainless steel hidden clipping systems. The clips will guarantee a consistent gap between the edges of the boards. Each floor joist requires 1 clip per board.
  • When joining boards using a Butt join, a double side by side joist is required. Fitting a clip on each joist.
  • Using the Oztuff fascia is an ideal way of finishing the edges of your new deck. Pre drilling of the fascia is required prior to fastening.
  • Oztuff Fascia is available with a brushed finished in all decking colours.
