composite decking

I am putting an information request out to the forum because of all of the experience we have out there. I am going to be building a deck here in NJ, using Timbertech 1x6 decking with slot for conceiled anchors. Question 1 is I would like any feedback on their "Earthwood Evolutions" decking. It appears to be composite with a vinyl wrap. /question 2 is Timbertech has their own fastener called Conceiloc. It is typical of a kirf type fastener with a screw. My supplier (Allied) has a nail gun like a flooring gun (pneumatic/mallet) that uses stainless nails. It looks like a huge time saver but I am a little affraid to try it. What does anyone have to say? Thanks Jeff

With this type of decking us the timber teck hidden fastener, the other type of gun I think you are referring to is also called hid fast, looks like a flooring gun, it works with PVC but dies have problems cracking and breaking iff pcs of the encapsulated products. Another hidden fastener clip u can look at is tiger claw

RE: composite decking

Good Morning Jeff,

I came across this post, and while it is a bit old, I figured I would address it regardless in case anyone else has a similar question.

Previous to my current position, I served as the Deck Products specialist for a fastener company where I worked on product development, particularly for composite decking.

TimberTech's Earthwood Evolutions is a capstock decking with a recycled center and a hard outer shell.

From my experience, the best way to fasten-down Evolutions is using the Cap-Tor fasteners by Starborn industries (available at www.manasquanfasteners.com).

Shoud you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me.

Best Regards,
Ryan Unick
