What is Deck-Max™ Original?
Our Deck-Max original fixing was the first secret fixing company in Australia that suited all timber decking timbers. We designed the original biscuit to perfectly suite most Biscuit cutters allowing you to put a groove in the side of your timber and use the secret fix biscuits to fix onto the joist.

What Do I need for my Timber Deck?
There are many ways to construct a deck as the construction will be dependent on your timber deck design. Your deck design will influence the way the deck is constructed also including the decking board colour and size will influence the decks over all look and feel.
The key things for any successful deck building are:
- Choose you deck design
- Select the choice of timber
- Choose the right secret fixings
- Select Screw Type
Deck-Max™ Original can be used on any Hardwood and some composite products giving you a wide range options for your timber deck finish. However if you want to use our High quality timber including end matching click here to view the pro biscuit and timber.
What are the differences between Original and Pro?
The key differences are if you have more time on your hands and want to source your own timber then the original system is perfect for you. If you want to use our high grade unique decking timber which is 110 wide this is already pre-grooved saving you time and money.
How Many Secret Fixings Will I Need?
The number of clips necessary for a project will depend on the distance between the joists of the supporting structure and the width of the deck board being used. The default calculations we work on is 90 x 19 and 140 x19 width of boards based on the spacing of the joists of 450 apart.
For example if you have a 30 Square Metre Deck, we would recommend the following to make your decking install much easier:
- 1 x 20 Square metre kit
- 2 x 5 Square metre kit
- 1 x 450mm Joist Clamp
- 2 x 600mm Decking Clamp
Again the above is only a recommendation however most of our customers use our clamps as it makes the job a lot easier and many of our contractors say: “it’s like having an extra contractor on site helping as the boards don’t move which frees my hands up to do a better quality job”
