KlevaKlip is the clever clip for ModWood decking. ModWood is a popular composite material made from recycled wood and plastic. This composite structure has multiple benefits. Firstly it looks and feels like a natural timber deck, but requires none of the maintenance.
If you've already decided on ModWood, you'll want to build your deck in such a way to maximise the beauty and texture of the material: KlevaKlips sit underneath and at the sides of the decking boards, creating the most natural, safe and beautiful finish possible.
KlevaKlip's clever clips for ModWood are available in both powder coated and plain clips. The powder-coating makes the clip less visible between the boards on your deck.
Buliding a ModWood deck with KlevaKlips is the ultimate in practicality and style .
How popular is KlevaKlip? Over a million KlevaKlips are supporting beautiful ModWood decks all over Australia.
Merbau is by far the most popular timber for building a deck in Australia. Also known as Kwila, the timber is very durable as well as termite resistant, both very desirable qualities for Australian decking. But perhaps the feature that makes Merbau so popular is its wonderful deep colour. The last thing you want to see in your new deck are screw or nail-heads, spoiling the look of the Merbau grain and getting in the way of re-sanding when the deck is a couple of years old!
There is now a clever alternative: KlevaKlip has a clever clip specifically designed for Merbau decking. Contrary to the ModWood-type clip which simply holds into the grove in the side of the board, the Merbau clip actually penetrates the sides of the Merbau boards, protecting the boards and joists from water ingress, and substantially increasing the long term durability of your deck, as well as keeping it looking great.
KlevaKlips are easy to use. If you are a first timer, it might take you a little while to get up to speed, but generally, building a deck can take about two-thirds the time it would have taken to secure the decking boards by pre-drilling and fixing with screws or nails. Don't worry if you're not sure how to build a deck with KlevaKlips, you'll find plenty of easy-to-follow videos showing you exactly what you need to do.
Installing your Merbau deck with KlevaKlips is the ultimate in practicality and style.
Clever Adjustable Joist Hanger
As many houses these days are built on concrete slabs, there is often a shortage of height available to build a deck substructure of stumps, bearers and joists etc. Indeed, many houses have a slab for a patio area set down only approx 100mm below the height of the main housing slab. Fixing timber battens directly to concrete slabs is regarded as a poor building practice due the moisture uptake into the batten which will rot out the batten way before its normal lifespan. Now deck design problems for concrete slab areas are a thing of the past.
The clever people from KlevaKlip have released the Adjustable Joist Hanger . This purpose-built product provides the perfect answer to the question of how to build a deck over concrete. The Adjustable Joist Hanger lifts the joists off the concrete and allows you to adjust the "top of joist height" from 80mm (using 60mm length bolts + 70 x 45mm joists) to 170mm (using 120mm length bolts + 90 x 45mm joists).
The KlevaKlip Adjustable Joist Hanger is registered for Patent approval. It is simple to install ( click here >>> for PDF installation instructions) and can be used with suitably treated timber joists with a width of 45mm, and minimum height of 70mm.
Note: Hardwood joists should be screwed to the joist hanger rather than nailed.
Please note: - the Adjustable Joist Hangers come in standard boxes of 24 units - each unit being a Joist Hanger + a Base Plate. Bolts, nuts, washers and dynabolts are standard sizes and must be purchased separately from your hardware store.
