The strength of a face-fastened connection with the beauty of a hidden fastener available online at

The Cortex® Hidden Fastening System is the fastest, easiest way to hide the heads of your deck screws on market-leading deck board types. Set the screw, set the plug, and you’re all set. Cortex® offers a strong connection between the deck board and the joist and can hide fasteners across the entire deck: first and last board, perimeter, and stairs.

Hidden fastening systems all suffer from the weaknesses of increased complexity. All the various clips, brackets and other hardware are all subject to corrosion, improper installation and structural failure. Cortex’s simplicity is its strength. Nothing can beat the simplicity and strength of a through the deck board screw. Once the plug is installed the screw is hidden and sealed off from the elements.

Cortex for Decking is made for 5/4” thick AZEK, EverGrain Classic Colors, TimberTech Twin Finish, TREX Accent and TREX Escape Collections.

FMW Fasteners also offers free shipping on orders over $25.00 and flat rate $5.00 shipping on orders under $25.00.
