DeckWise® Hidden Fasteners have a stainless steel reinforced middle and are tested to be up to 3x stronger than other hidden fastening systems. Unlike some all metal deck fasteners, which can have a reaction with certain woods, the Ipe Clip® is molded of a malleable plastic polymer resin coating (with UV and chemical resistant qualities), which allows the natural expansion and contraction of natural wood decking. This coating, which is available in 3 colors, also gives your clips even more of a hidden look.

Ipe Clips are made specifically for Brazilian Hardwoods to give your deck a clean, sleek look with no screw heads showing. Our clips are made to go into the grooves that can be milled in the sides of your boards (or you can use a biscuit joiner). The Ipe Clip Extreme fits into the groove while the stainless steel screw goes through your hardwood and then into your joist to hold your hardwood boards securely in place. Ipe Clip is made for Ipé which is air dried and leaves a 3/32 of an inch gap while the Extreme 4 works on both kiln dried and air dried wood and has a 5/32 of an inch spacing between your boards (this is the clip used for Hidden Clip Decking Pattern which even hides the gap between your boards) . The Extreme KD is made for your kiln dried hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Garapa (use 316SS) and Massaranduba creating a ¼” gap between your boards.

Ipe Clips are available in brown, gray and black. Plugs are made out of the Brazilian Hardwoods and the appropriate plugs are shipped to match your wood and are included in the 175 pc. kits.

All Ipé Clips are also available with a 316 Stainless Steel Screw which is for use with Garapa or any deck that is near saltwater. $127.00 316 SS 175 pc. or $77.50 316SS 100 pc. For larger contractor buckets, see below.

Reliable Deck Board Spacing

The reason Ipe Clip® Extreme™ invisible clips set a smaller gap between deck boards than Ipe Clip® ExtremeKD™ or the Extreme4™ clip is because different decking materials require different gap spacing due to expansion and contraction of the wood species. The Extreme™ (3/32” (2,4mm) spacer) is designed for small gaps such as on hardwood decking such as Ipe, while the Extreme4™ uses a 5/32” (4mm) gap (for use with Hidden Clip Decking) and the ExtremeKD™ can be used with kiln dried hardwoods such as Tigerwood, Garapa (any kiln dried hardwood) for a 1/4” (6,4mm) gapping. For example, air dried decking material will tend to contract on its width more than kiln dried material (which can also expand) so a smaller gap space between boards is required. These deck clips are installed with one side of the decking board, free to contract and expand on its width as needed.

There are Advantages To DeckWise® Invisible Fastener Clips

Shape: Due to the size and shape of our clips, the square biscuit Ipe Clip® brand speeds up your install and eases installation problems associated with other decking fastener method. The smaller shape allows for approximately 1" of tolerance in the positioning of the slots cut by a biscuit joiner or router.

Other unseen fastening methods do not allow for much tolerance in the cutting of the edge slots, which can complicate and slow down your installation.

Color: Our Clips are available in 3 colors: Hardwood Brown, Composite Grey or “shadowline" Black to help you match the desired look of your exotic hardwood deck.

Tools & Accessories: Our fastener kits can be ordered in multiple combinations of clip colors, screw types and lengths and screw head colors, screw bits and tips, gap spacer sizes, as well as face screwing and leader board wooden hole plugs.

We carry a full line of accessories so that you can fill all of your decking material needs all at once with our other great items such as a hardwood oil finish (Ipe Oil™), an end grain sealant (Ipe Seal™, wood cleaner and brighteners and much more.
