WILMINGTON, OH -- TimberTech, a leading manufacturer of alternative decking and railing, has taken the guesswork out of deck fastening with the introduction of TOPLoc Face Fastening and Fascia Fasteners. TimberTech first entered the fastening marketing in 2006 with the industry leading hidden fastener, CONCEALoc.
By providing TOPLoc through TimberTech's nationwide network of distributors, all TimberTech dealers and contractors now have access to TOPLoc, a competitive face fastening option with colors to compliment TimberTech's deck and fascia offering.
"TimberTech has always had the densest board on the market, providing industry-leading strength, increased span, and lack of deflection. Some fasteners just work better with TimberTech decking and we knew that we had to supply the best fasteners to match our quality and aesthetics," said Toby Bostwick, Sr. Product Manager.
TOPLoc Fasteners are covered by TimberTech's 25-year residential warranty, providing homeowners with the assurance of one warranty.
TOPLoc Face Fastener is a #8 x 2-1/2" alternative decking screw that has a T-20 star drive recess to improve bit engagement. TOPLoc Face Fasteners feature tri-lobular design to reduce compression within the board and has an undercut head with three annular rings to eliminate undesired mushrooming without pre-drilling (except at ends).
Oil canning, which is any warping or waving, can be a major issue with fascia when it is not properly installed. By using the TOPLoc Fascia Bit - which pre-drills and countersinks fascia in one step to decrease installation time - installers will hang the fascia, not drive it, which is a major contributor to the effects and appearance of oil canning. The TOPLoc Fascia Fastener is a #10 x 1-3/4" trim head screw that also has a T-20 star drive, ensuring a flush and secured fastening solution.
With the five colors of TOPLoc fasteners (Cedar, Grey, Rosewood, Teak and Walnut), TOPLoc can be color matched perfectly to all twelve decking colors in the TimberTech product lines.
