Why KlevaKlip?

Two things set the KlevaKlip system apart from its competitors:

  • KlevaKlip is Australia’s only multi-board, fixed-pitch decking system – the clip controls the spacing of the boards, with each clip simply butting up to the previous one. This makes our system quick and easy to use when compared to other systems in the market.
  • KlevaKlip does not try and sell a “one product fits all” approach. This simply doesn’t work. Although many of the principles of our clips are the same, the actual clips for fixing ModWood and Merbau/Kwila are specifically different.

KlevaKlip has been the only recommended concealed fixing system for ModWood composite decking for many years and has been used successfully on many, many thousands of ModWood decks. Approximately half the ModWood decks laid in Australia are done so with KlevaKlip – the other half being laid using traditional screws or nails.

For merbau/kwila decking, KlevaKlip merbau clip allows you to purchase and use decking boards “off the shelf” without the need for deep grooves in the sides of the boards which are not only expensive and time-consuming, they can in some cases affect the integrity of the side edges of the boards. Introduced in 2010, the merbau clip has been used on many thousands of decks across Australia.

Why ModWood and Merbau/Kwila?

Simple ModWood is far and away Australia’s most popular wood/plastic composite decking board, and Merbau/Kwila is the largest selling hardwood decking timber in Australia.

The KlevaKlip “ModWood clips” have been tailor-made to fit the ModWood 88mm and 137mm decking boards, each of which have a shallow groove in the sides of the boards. These clips will not fit other brands of composite decking boards.

The KlevaKlip “Merbau clip” has been designed to suit the size, hardness, density and shrinkage rates of 90mm merbau/kwila. It is not designed for use with other timbers. As previously mentioned, we do not believe in the “one product fits all” approach to our clips – that’s why they work!

Aesthetic Appeal

There is one main reason why people use a concealed fixing system - they love the look! 

The undisputed appeal of concealed fastening allows you to see the natural beauty of your decking boards, not the cluttered look of thousands of fixings. Now that's clever!

Unlike most concealed fixing systems, KlevaKlip is actually very quick and easy to use - even if you are not an expert. Time studies have shown that laying your deck with KlevaKlip can give you at least 30% time savings versus traditional pre-drilling and screwing your decking boards. Clever builders simply won't use anything else but KlevaKlip.            

Can be used with Timber or Metal Joists

Quick, Easy, Clever!

Did you know that most manufacturers of steel joists do not recommend fixing decking boards direct to the steel joist - advising to fix a timber batten first?

KlevaKlips have the huge advantage that they can be used directly onto either timber or steel joists without problems and without building unwanted stresses into your deck. KlevaKlip are the recommended fixing for Lysaght steel joists.

Safe for Children

With no nails holding your boards down, your risk of stubbing your toe on a nail that's popped up is eliminated.. This reduces splinter and trip hazards - making your deck safer for small children and adults alike.

Future Maintenance

Perfect Finish!

Not only does KlevaKlip help prevent water damage to boards and joists caused by water permeating screw and nail holes, the absence of top fixing means that you can re-sand your timber decking boards without having to re-screw/punch every fixing on your deck . Now that's a clever time-saver!
