The System consists of the following components:
(1) Screws: Epoxy Coated Carbon Steel, Grades 305 or 316 Stainless Steel screws are available in various lengths (from 2″ – 3″). All screws feature a star drive recess and are ACQ approved.
(2) PVC/Composite Tool: This unique patented tool drives screws to the correct depth below the surface. It features a No Cam-Out Auto-Stop™ mechanism that prevents the screw from stripping and a free spinning stop collar that protects the board.
(3) Plugs: Made from actual PVC/Composite deck or trim material, so they match perfectly.
Plugs and screws are now available in separate packs with our Inventory Management Program. This program offers lumberyards the ability to carry a wider range of plug fastening options, while keeping inventory and shelf space to a minimum.
Once target depth is reached, the Auto-Stop™ mechanism inside the tool disengages the driver bit and stops the screw from driving further, preventing the screw recess from stripping.
Free Spinning Stop Collar
The free spinning stop collar is fitted with a rubber O-ring to prevent damage to the work surface .
Special bits for Deck and Trim Applications
Driver bits used with the PVC/Composite Tool are replaceable. There are two types of driver bits: DECK bits and TRIM bits, each optimized for their specific application. Both PVC Tool packages and PVC Deck/Trim Kits include spare bits.
Stainless and Epoxy Coated Star Drive Fasteners:
Epoxy Coated Carbon Steel, Grades 305 or 316 Stainless Steel screws are available in various lengths (from 2″ – 3″). All screws feature a star drive recess and are ACQ approved. When driven below the surface with the PVC Tool, both fasteners create a perfect hole for the plug, without pre-drilling.
Plugs are made from actual deck and trim board material, so the color and grain match perfectly.
