Building Products Partners with
HIDfast Deck Fastening System
SCRANTON, Pa -- AZEK Building Products,
manufacturer of AZEK Deck, the #1 brand of stain resistant decking, announces
an agreement with the makers of the HIDfast deck hidden fastening system
giving them access to the AZEK distribution channel. As part of the
agreement, the incredibly fast HIDfast system will be sold only through
the AZEK channel.
"HIDfast is one more fastening solution
that works well with AZEK Deck," said Michael Gori, AZEK's Product Manager
for Decking. "It has re-invented and raised the bar of hidden deck
fastening and we think it will benefit contractors with speed and ease
Manufactured by HIDfast, Inc., the system
is the first collated air-driven hidden deck fastener system on the market.
Similar to a hardwood floor installation, it features patented, stainless
steel fasteners that are much larger and stronger, with a built-in spacer
to help hold an 1/8" gap between boards.
"We've developed a tool that is the perfect
partner for AZEK Deck--and represents a smarter way to work for decking
contractors," said Glenn Tebo of HIDfast Inc. "With AZEK Deck's numerous
consumer advantages and the HIDfast system's convenience and speed, it's
a win-win for contractors and their customers."
How It Works: The HIDfast
system installs fasteners through the edge of the decking and down into
the joist at an angle. This type of edge fastening is secure and gives
customers a smooth, screw-free decking surface that is safer for bare feet
and looks more attractive. HIDfast fasteners are available in 2.5
or 3 inches in length which is perfect for securing an AZEK Deck to most
types of framing. The pneumatic air-gun is loaded with two 25-piece
collated fastener strips and, during use, is used to drive the fasteners
into the board one at a time. The HIDfast system can fasten 100 square
feet of decking in approximately 10 minutes. For more information,
AZEK Deck is made of cellular PVC so, unlike
wood or composites, it is resistant to stains, scratches, and splits –
common problems with other types of decking materials. AZEK Deck
is available in 11 popular colors and several grain patterns. All
AZEK Deck products are covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty and are either
building code listed or are under confirmation testing for a code report.
In addition to the new HIDfast system, AZEK Deck can be installed using
traditional deck screws as well as other hidden fasteners on the market.
