Check out this intro video:
Adjustable Joist Support
The Adjustable Joist Support has been designed specifically to enable decks to easily be built over concrete slabs in areas where limited ground clearance is available. It is ideal for use when the step-down from your door to your concrete slab is between 100mm / 4 inches (minimum) and around 260mm /10 inches (maximum).
There are two types of Adjustable Joist Supports the AJH45G has been specifically designed to be used with 45mm wide treated pine timber joists for the Australian & New Zealand markets and the AJH38G (metrically measured) has been specifically designed to be used with 2 inch wide pressure treated timber joists for US markets.
Keeps your joists off the concrete and free of unwanted moisture ingress.This prevents joist-rot through the bottom of joists.
Is ideal for use on area where the concrete has built in "fall" - to provide a level deck.
Quick and easy to use – purpose-built for the application
Gives a neat, professional look across your deck structure without resorting to various different packers and brackets to achieve your end result.

Adjustable Bearer Support
Every deck starts with the process of getting the substructure right - if it isn't properly spaced out and level, the chances of building the deck correctly are almost zero.
Therefore time must be spent on getting the posts or piers set to the correct height across the deck - a job made even more difficult if the ground is not level.
The clever people from KlevaKlip have introduced the Adjustable Bearer Support.
Extremely easy-to-use, and suited for decks up to approximately 600m off the ground, the Adjustable Bearer Support allows you to be much less critical with your height measurements in the knowledge that you can simply wind the bearer support up or down to set your perfect height.
It will save lots of time and make your job so much easier.
The range of KlevaKlip Joist Connectors have revolutionised the way joists are attached to bearers.
An absolute must for every handyman and quickly becoming the preferred fixing method of many builders, the
Joist Connector makes the set-out and fixing off of your substructure a breeze.
