Deck Fasteners

The right hardware for a custom look

Keep it together with style.

The choice is yours.

Whether out of sight or on the surface, Fiberon fasteners get the job done. Choose hidden fasteners for a smooth, uninterrupted deck surface or face fasteners with color-matched plugs for a more traditional approach. Either way, you're sure to give you a look you'll love.
