Kuiken Brothers offers a wide range of fasteners for new construction and remodeling applications. Connectors and hangers are rarely seen by the homeowners or their guests, but are always one of the most important components of a home. We continue to partner with the leading manufacturers in the industry to ensure your homes are built to the highest of standards. Fastener manufacturers include Bostitch, FastenMaster, Simpson Strong-Tie and Starborn Industries.
Deckfast Stainless Steel and Ceramic Coated Screws
Deckfast screws are available in both stainless steel and epoxy coated hardened steel. The epoxy coating on Deckfast Epoxy Coated screws provides excellent corrosion resistance and comes in four colors – Gray, Green, Red and Tan – to match treated lumber. The adhesion of the epoxy coating on these ACQ-rated screws is one of the very best on the market. Deckfast Stainless combines the same great features as Deckfast Epoxy deck screws with the added benefit of stainless steel for superior corrosion resistance.
Fastenmaster Cortex Hidden Fastener
You build a FastenMaster Cortex deck the same way you would screw down any deck. Using your standard drill and the Cortex Setting Tool, drive the Cortex fastener to the preset level below the deck surface. It is important that the Cortex screw is driven perpendicular to the deck, with two screws per joist. The setting of the Cortex screw creates a cored-out hole in the deck surface. Place the Cortex Engineered Plug into the hole with the deck surface side up. Gently tap the plug into the cored-out hole until the plug is flush with the deck surface.
The FastenMaster LedgerLOK is engineered for the attachment of ledger boards to the rim joist of the house FASTER – EASIER – STRONGER THAN ½” LAGS. No predrilling and no ratcheting needed. It will cut your labor time in half. The LedgerLok also has a built in washer head which eliminates the need for an additional washer and allows for increased holding power. The LedgerLok has been engineered to offer higher design shear values than other ledger fasteners including ½” lags. LedgerLok is fully compliant with ICC-IBC Code.
NO MORE MUSHROOMS! The FastenMaster TrapEase Composite Wood Deck Screw is specially designed to eliminate the “mushrooming” effect caused by standard deck screws in composite deck materials.
Headcote Stainless Steel Color Match
HEADCOTE stainless steel deck screws with color coated heads are designed to blend with all types of decking. HEADCOTE Composite screws are designed with a unique TransVerse threading that helps prevent mushrooming without the need to pre-drill.
Tiger Claw Hidden Fasteners
Kuiken Brothers stocks the TC-G fastener which is used primarily for grooved composite boards (Portico Eclipse Decking). Recommended for use in 5/4″ or thicker decking. A router or biscuit joiner can be used to create grooves in solid edge decking.
