* If using 1-1/2″ or thicker material, you may need to upgrade to a longer screw option
than what is typically packaged with the fastening kit.

** For decking 8″ (20,32cm) or wider, the (A) dimension should be at least 1-1/2″ (38,1mm). Using a wide plank such as this for surface decking will most likely cause cupping issues regardless of how the material is fastened if thicker material is not used.

*** This formula will create a symmetrical profile that allows you to flip and/or rotate the decking to be able to put the best side up.

**** Fastener automatically achieves correct gap spacing when boards are pushed tight during installation
