DeckWise™ Debuts Hardwood Decking Tiles

Fastener Company Launches Deck Tile Line

BRADENTON, Fla., June 19, 2012 —, an internationally recognized manufacturer of hidden deck fasteners and accessories, has recently introduced high-quality hardwood deck tiles to their inventory lineup in an effort to expand their esteemed and established product offerings to include commodities beyond the deck building supplies they traditionally produce.

"We have established ourselves as a leading supplier of high-quality stainless steel screws to South American deck tile manufacturers. So it seemed like a natural fit to offer our US customer base deck tiles built with our screws and, at the same time, help promote our South American clientele. Ultimately, our success distributing screws and Deck Tile Connectors to our dealers made adding the tiles as a pre-assembled accessory a no-brainer," said Jeffrey Horn, COO of DeckWise, a division of The Ipe Clip Fastener Company LLC.

Three of the world's most luxurious and in-demand hardwoods form the catalog of the new deck tiles, which conveniently come in multiple variations:

  • Ipe: Available in two sizes: 24 x 24 inches with a thickness of 1.69 inches, and 20 x 20 inches with a thickness of 1.18 inches. The latter's surface comes in two incarnations: smooth and anti-slip; the former comes in smooth.
  • Cumaru: 20 x 20 inches with a thickness of 1.18 inches; smooth surface
  • Tigerwood: 20 x 20 inches with a thickness of 1.18 inches; smooth surface

Deck tiles, also known as instant decking, portable decking or pre-installed decking, have dramatically grown in popularity in recent years, hence the decision by DeckWise to add them to their "starting lineup" of product choices.

"Besides giving past, present and future customers more premium-quality product choices from DeckWise, we've also given them another benefit that many can reap in this current rental-dominated market: portability," said Jeffrey. "Whereas traditional decking is meant to be permanent and left behind in the event a tenant relocates, decking tiles allow anybody – tenant or homeowner – to place them on their patio and then easily take the tiles with them when they move."

Jeffrey adds that "Decking tiles are ideal for people who wish to cover up ugly, aged concrete patios and other structural blemishes, as well as liven up their outdoor surroundings with a luxurious look that can be seamlessly moved and arranged with ease."
