“At Deceuninck North America, we are pleased to be working with FastenMaster, whose products offer one of the fastest installation methods of grooved decking materials on the market,” said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “By utilizing ConnectClip and Cortex, contractors and builders will be able to work even more efficiently, saving them time and money. The aesthetic appeal of the fastener system also greatly enhances the appearance of Clubhouse Decking, increasing the deck’s durability and delivering even greater quality.”

Clubhouse Decking is 100-percent PVC and contains no wood or wood fillers. It is formulated to be up to 25-percent lighter than most wood and composites while offering superior strength and a solid underfoot feel with Deceuninck’s Korelite(TM) technology. Korelite also helps to keep moisture out and reduces the opportunity for degradation from mold, mildew, freezing and thawing. Clubhouse Decking is also 100-percent recyclable and colors and wood grains do not require painting or staining. Clubhouse Decking features a limited lifetime warranty with 25-year fade and stain protection backed by Deceuninck.
