FastenMaster Cortex Driller Hidden Fastening System is the fastest, easiest way to hide the heads of fasteners on deck boards used on steel deck framing. Perfect for use on perimeter boards, stairs, and breaker boards to create a completely hidden fastened deck.
The 1-5/8" Cortex Driller fastener requires no predrilling into steel deck framing. Simply drive the fastener at the preset level using the setting tool to fasten the board and create a clean, cored hole. Next, gently tap in the plug made of the same decking material to create a fastener free surface.
NOTE: To get a smooth finished look, it may be necessary to predrill a 5/32" pilot hole through the deck board. No need to predrill the steel framing.
