Hatton decking board starter clips and screws make installation of your composite deck a breeze. They are designed to fit at the first and last run of your composite decking providing a neat, concealed fixing at the start and for the last run of decking boards. Clips are required required to be placed every 350mm on the starter board and end board to securely hold down the board and yet the board expand and contract as they do in different weather conditions.
The clips are very easy to fit they are pre drilled so all you need to do is decide which way the boards are being installed and fix a clip along the frame edge that will have the length of the board running along it. Fix a clip at the corner and then 350mm apart. Once all the clips are in place simply slid the first board up to the clips and push it back into the clip. That’s it as easy as that.
Starter clips are sold in packs of 10. so divide the length of you deck by 350mm and order enough packs to cover the amount needed. w
