SPAX® Fastening Solutions for Any Deck Project


May is NADRA’s Deck Safety Month® and SPAX® Has Fastening Solutions and Accessories for Any Deck Project

At the start of The North American Deck & Rail Association (NADRA) Deck Safety Month, SPAX® offers solutions to help professional builders and DIYers complete any project with enhanced performance and strong connections for a safer deck. A NADRA 2024 Bronze Deck Safety Ambassador, SPAX is a brand of ALTENLOH, BRINCK & CO. US, INC., with innovative fastening solutions designed for maximum efficiency. NADRA serves as a trade association with an emphasis on code compliance and deck safety. With more than 60 million decks in the U.S., NADRA estimates that 30 million decks are past their useful life and need to be replaced or repaired. That’s why each May, the organization promotes deck safety with public outreach and a Deck Safety Check List. Furthering SPAX’s commitment to deck safety and code compliance, Loren Ross, Structural Engineer for Altenloh Brinck & CO. US, INC., works with NADRA on their Code Committee.

With SPAX’s patented thread technology, their engineered fasteners require no pre-drilling and drive faster and easier than conventional lags and other structural lag screws. They are perfect for various interior and exterior applications in multiple materials, including the deck structure and for fastening deck boards, trim and railings.

“As a proud NADRA Bronze Deck Safety Ambassador, SPAX is the one-stop source for deck builders who pride themselves on craftsmanship and deck safety,” said Robert Knecht, Senior Marketing Manager. “Quality fasteners are key to deck safety in many structural applications, such as having a strong connection from the ledger board to the house.”
