How is the Even Screw Pattern Produced?

Our system guarantees you a clean and uniform screw pattern on your wooden deck. The centrepiece of the set is the deck board drilling guide for effortless and precise alignment of the drill holes. Simply align the template at the last fastening and prepare the screw connection by drilling into the front drill bush first and then into the rear drill bush using the screw starter and countersink. The bushes are made of hardened steel and safely guide the drill. 

Advantages:

  • All screws are perfectly aligned in a straight row
  • Even distancing between the screws and the edge of the board

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Determining the drilling position

After you have built the substructure, you can start on the decking. On the top of the decking board, mark the two drilling positions for the screws with two lines. Make sure that the bore holes are not positioned in one of the grooves of the board.

2. Adjusting the drilling guide

Place the deck board drilling guide on the board. Use the notch on the side to adjust the guide until the rear drill bush is accurately positioned on the appropriate marking line.

Repeat the same procedure to adjust the front drill bush to the second marking line, using the notch on the side.

Subsequently position the board accurately on the supporting beams.

3. Placing the spacers

Every 80 cm, insert a spacer between the decking boards. You can choose a spacing of 6 mm or 8 mm between the boards.

Use the lug of the drilling guide to align it with the existing row of screws and, for the time being, just spot-drill the screw holes.

4. Finishing the drill holes

Then place the drilling guide aside and finish drilling the holes. In the process, the holes for the screw heads are also sunk. The screw starter with countersink and depth stop can be used to accurately set the countersinking depth.

5. Fastening the screws

Once all holes in the entire board have been drilled, centre the board on the support beams and fasten the screws with the magnetic bit holder. With the installation clamp, you can also straighten warped boards.
