The method of 45 degree screws hold the decking tight to the joist, while allowing one side of the deck board to remain free to expand.
Running screws straight down with composite/PVC decking allows these materials to naturally move on their length.

* If using 1-1/2" (38,1mm) or thicker material, you may need to upgrade to a longer screw option than what is typically packaged with the fastening kit.
** For decking 8" (20,32cm) or wider, the (A) dimension should be at least 1-1/2" (38,1mm). Using a wide plank such as this for surface decking will most likely cause cupping issues regardless of how the material is fastened if thicker material is not used.
*** This formula will create a symmetrical profile that allows you to flip and/or rotate the decking to be able to put the best side up.
**** Fastener automatically achieves correct gap spacing when boards are pushed tight during installation.
Boxes of Ipe Clip® Fastener Kits come in many combinations. Kit variations of 100 (50 sq. ft.) and 175 (100 sq. ft.) counts are easily customized with variations of decking screws different styles, length and color.
