Tiger Claw TC-3S for Composites - Bucket of 900 - With Screws and 4 Installation Block Tools has been developed specifically for use with composite or synthetic decking materials and some medium density hardwoods.
The TC-3 will work with composite and synthetic decking lumber varieties such as Boardwalk, ChoiceDek, Elements, EverGrain, EverX, Fiberon, GeoDeck, Green Tree (2x4 hollow), LakeShore, Latitude, Monarch, Nexwood, Portico, ProCell, TimberTech (5/4 planking), Trex, UltraDeck, Veka, Veranda, Weather Best, and WeatherShield.
TC-3 will work with medium density hardwood decking lumber varieties such as Cambara and Meranti.
We do not recommend our fasteners for Correct Deck, TimberTech 2"x6" hollow plank, and Oasis. Unfortunately, due to the design of the materials, installation testing results showed difficulty and require additional skill. Please consult your composite manufacturer or ask us first if you plan to use any other composite or synthetic material not listed above in your decking project.
- TC-3s specifically designed to use with composite, PVC, or mahogany decking
- Made of 304 stainless steel; Approved for saltwater applications and ACQ or chemically treated lumber
- Simple three-step installation process results in a safe, secure, fastener-free decking surface
- Fasteners are designed to allow decking to expand and contract naturally by sliding on the fastener prongs and still maintain hold down strength. From the point of installation, the TC-3S Fastener can handle expansion up to 1/8" and contraction up to 3/16
