EB TY Decking System

The EB-TY provides a unique method of fastening deck boards that makes the fasteners virtually invisible. Fastening is done into the side of the board, leaving a fastener-free deck surface. This system can be used with most types of decking, including Cedar Decking and Mahogany Decking.


EB-TY Decking System

The EB-TY provides a unique method of fastening deck boards that makes the fasteners virtually invisible.The EB-TY is a polypropylene biscuit fastener that fits into a slot the builder cuts into the edge of the deck boards with a standard biscuit joiner. The EB-TY fasteners are inserted and fastened with a screw driven into the joist. Nesting each successive board against the EB-TY automatically ensures consistent spacing and uniform height.


Features

Construction adhesive is not recommended when installing composite deck boards as some adhesives will have an adverse reaction upon contact with certain plastics.

  • Easy to install since all fastening is done from the top side
  • Affords easier deck resurfacing since nail heads are eliminated from the deck surface
  • Formed from long lasting polypropylene to last the life of the deck
  • Stainless-steel #7 trim-head screws included
  • Each EB-TY package includes installation instructions and enough EB-TY fasteners, screws and tapered Ipe wood plugs to install 100 square feet of decking (175-Pack quantity assumes 6" wide boards, installed perpendicular to joists spaced 16" on center)


Installation

  1. Fasten the first board using construction adhesive and screws, then cut slots where the board intersects joists using a 5/32" router bit or plate joiner (biscuit cutter #20) and install the first EB-TY fasteners. Do not use construction adhesive with composite decking.
  2. Cut slots in the next board where it intersects the joists.
  3. Apply a bead of construction adhesive to the top of each joist and install the new board so that the slots fit over the EB-TY fasteners installed in the first board.
  4. Insert EB-TY fasteners into each slot in the exposed edge of the board and fasten with screws.
  5. Repeat the process until all boards are installed.
