About the KlevaKlip Merbau Clip

Merbau is an extremely attractive, highly durable hardwood timber. 90mm Merbau decking is Australia’s single most widely used decking material.  

There is no doubt that people absolutely love the look of a timber deck unencumbered by the look of hundreds/thousands of screws or nails in the surface of the boards. Whilst concealed fixing systems have long been around for timber decking, most of the various systems available required either pre-grooving or pre-drilling of the boards to enable the system to be used. This can be expensive, time consuming, detrimental to the integrity of the boards, or sometimes all three of the problems put together

Enter the KlevaKlip!

Adopting the same principle of a fixed-pitch, multi-board concealed fixing system that has been so successful with the ModWood composite decking, the people at KlevaKlip introduced a clip specifically designed for use with 90mm merbau decking. Unlike the “ModWood clip”, which (due to the stability of composite decking) simply needs “hold” the board in place, the merbau clip is a “penetrating clip”, meaning that the teeth actually discretely penetrate the sides of the decking board, giving excellent holding power.

The great advantage of this clip is that not only is it a very efficient way of fixing your boards down, but you can purchase “off the shelf” decking boards that require no pre-grooving or pre-drilling for the system to work properly. Now, that’s a clever way of doing things!

KlevaKlip "Merbau Clip" is a multi-board concealed fixed clip. Working on "fixed pitch" principle, this clever clip provides a consistent finish that is obtained without the use of nails or screws. As each board is inserted into the KlevaKlip, its "teeth" locked into place by a special fixing tool that is supplied with each box of clips.

This mechanical holding is supported by the use of adhesive to provide a look, longevity and feel that is difficult to obtain with conventional fastening systems - with the clever advantage of not having to pre-groove your boards.
