Invisi-Fast Typical Installation - Before your first board ...
Prior to first board installation

Step 1: Starting from the outside, attach the Invisi-Fast™ with no spacer between each joist. *Install first board with proper overhang and secure using the top holes (Deck Board Holes) of the Invisi-Fast™ fastener.

* For a more sound deck and to prevent squeaks, we recommend applying a 3/8” bead of Silicone or Construction Adhesive along joist before installing Invisi-Fast™ hidden deck fastener to help fill in voids and imperfections on the mating surfaces between the joist and deck boards. Not applying adhesive will not compromise stability. This practice is very common. It is the same as if you were to install the floor decking on every house built. They install an adhesive to keep the decking from squeaking. Especially outside where the temperature change allows for expansion and contraction of the deck boards.

Invisi-Fast Typical Installation - Step 1 Step 2:  Using the Invisi-Fast™ with spacer, slide the convenient Overhang Tabs under your first deck board for hands free attachment. Then, using an approved deck screw, fasten the Invisi-Fast™ to the joist using a lower hole.

We recommend one screw to be fastened into the joist. The other 2 holes are to be used as backups (if wood imperfection is present.)
Invisi-Fast Typical Installation - Step 2 Step 3: Secure the deck board by using the corresponding upper hole. Slide your second board into place. Secure deck board by using the remaining upper hole.

Continue this process for the length of the joist.

Note: When 2 boards meet each other on a joist, install an Invisi-Fast™ on each side of the joist.
Invisi-Fast Typical Installation - Step 3 Step 4: Repeat this process until the last deck board.

Note: Prior to securing the final board, cut your board to size if necessary. Using the Invisi-Fast™ without a spacer, secure the Invisi-Fast™ to the inside perimeter board (rimboard) using the lower hole. Then once all perimeter fasteners are secure, fasten your final deck board using the upper deck board holes.

 

For 16" on center decks, use our handy 16" Calculator to find the right amount of Invisi-Fast Hidden Deck Fasteners for your project. Calculation is an estimate and does not apply to the Invisi-Fast Plus Fastener.

For 12" on center decks, use our 12" Calculator.

Using Construction Adhesive
Construction adhesive acts as an insulator, helping eliminate squeaking and creaking after your deck boards have settled, so your deck will sound solid years after installation. Depending on which exterior construction adhesive is required for your climate area, the adhesive also provides additional holding power. 


Natural Wood Spacing Tip
It's really a personal preferance. You can choose to go with a spacer if want to pregap your boards or a no spacer. We are findng that when no spacers are used the deck boards shrink about 1/16". This is on the field testing we have completed, and from contractor feedback. Alot of people prefer this while others would prefer to pregap the deckboards. There is no wrong way to install treated or cedar boards, just whatever your preferance may be.

**Use No-Spacer or 1/8" for Treated, Cedar or Redwood Decks. In some instances, you may decide to go with 1/4" to allow pine needles and tree seeds to fall through the gaps.
