DeckWise® Hardwood Deck Tile System and Connectors give contractors, architects, DIY homeowners, and even renters a quick and easy way to construct semi-permanent decking or renovate their outdoor living space. The DeckWise® Hardwood Deck Tile System can be tailored to any specific need or application and are perfect for restaurants, rooftops, patios and bar establishments. Any area where space might be limited or where permanent decking cannot be built.
With the DeckWise® Deck Tile Connector you never have to worry about loose or uneven gaps between tiles. The DeckWise® engineers surveyed deck tile installers to ask what they wanted to see in a deck tile fastening system. Their input gave us the fuel we needed to design and engineer the easiest way to install wood-backed hardwood decking tiles.
DeckWise® Deck Tile Connectors have pre-drilled countersink holes ready for fastening to an existing surface or sub-structure. Patented: D665,657
Make sure the surface being covered is relatively flat and free of anything that may get in the way of installation such as sticks, rocks or furniture. Then choose one corner of the area to begin working in. Optionally, you may snap a chalk line to have a straight line to follow during installation.Installation Video
Many wood-backed deck tiles are milled with four predrilled holes located in each corner. The Deck Tile Connector fits each of these holes with four specially designed ribbed pins (aka Pine tree fasteners). For a secure fit, simply set one of the tiles onto the preinstalled fasteners.Installation Video
Once the first tile is laid, you can proceed placing the other tiles onto the remaining pins. The Deck Tile Connector automatically sets the gap spacing to 3/8” so you won’t have to worry about an uneven look.Installation Video
Simply score the connector using a utility knife along the pre-molded grooves that mark the edges of the built in spacers. Bend the edges downward to snap the connector in half. Repeat the same process to use a quarter of the connector to install on the corners of your deck tiles.

Note: You can use both halves of a halved, or quartered tile connector on either hidden or exposed edges. You can also use the edge with the spacer to provide a gap between your new deck and any adjacent structure such as a house, fence, or wall.
