Sensibuilt Building Solutions, LLC, the leader in the development and manufacture of high-quality alternative building materials, announces the launch of the Deck Pilot, a new hidden fastening system developed exclusively for Sensibuilt decking.
The Deck Pilot system (patent-pending) gives contractors a simple, strong, cost-effective way to install Sensibuilt decks without exposed screw heads or expensive brackets. It delivers the best-looking finish on the market today, installs in a fraction of the time with simple screw fasteners and saves two dollars or more per square foot in material costs.
The Deck Pilot is the first and only system to fasten solid decking directly through the edge of the deck board with no pre-drilling. This proprietary system is designed to work simply and flawlessly with all Sensibuilt decking. No composite decking material allows edge angle-fastening due to edge “blow-out”. ASTM tests of the system on Sensibuilt decking have proven that it far exceeds hurricane zone requirements in uplift tests.
Not only is the Deck Pilot system strong against uplift, but it also fastens each board twice at each joist interface. This keeps the deck boards from bouncing underfoot as other systems can, and it also strengthens the framing underneath, preventing racking, sliding, shifting or loosening of joists or deck boards. All this, plus no visible fasteners, at speeds equal to or faster than screwing directly down through the deck boards.
Fast, simple, strong, affordable, and invisible. The Deck Pilot delivers an unseen advantage for both contractors and homeowners.
