Fasteners with multilayer protection system MITEK offers anchors, hangers, framing angles, straps and fasteners in Gold Coat for twice the corrosion protection. The multilayer system pro- tects the integrity of the structural connector by offering two layers of corrosion resistance; the top layer, an appealing gold color, is a specially formulated organic polymer designed specifically for outdoor applications and contact with treated wood. Stainless steel forms the base material for the Gold Coat system on fasteners, which includes nails, wood screws and LumberLok Screws in a range of sizes. Circle 24 on inquiry card Two hidden fastener solutions DECKORATORS offers The Stowaway Hidden Fastener and the Cortex Hidden Fastening System for deck fastening solutions. The Stowaway Hidden Fastener discreetly secures deck boards to joists with a single stainless steel, color-matched screw—resulting in a smooth and virtually fastener-free deck surface. Coming preloaded with the Stowaway screw, the fas- tener ensures deck boards are automatically spaced at proper intervals and eliminates the need for predrilling and countersinking. The Cortex system hides deck screws on stairs, perimeter boards or when replacing a board, and all company decking colors are available for the system.

With the counter- sunk portion offering a good centering possibility, ideal applications are decking, framing, sub-floors, fencing, lattice, shelving, railings, stairs, fine woodworking and more. It is available in lengths from 1 ½ in. up to 12 in. in hardened steel, and lengths from 1 ½ in. to 4 in. of 316 grade stainless steel.
