Hidden Fastener Line

FastenMaster has expanded its Cortex hidden fastening line with seven new colors of pre-aligned, collated Cortex Plugs for the Trex Enhance decking system. The plugs, packaged with FastenMaster’s exclusive Spotter Lid, are specifically designed for proper Trex Enhance board installation on joists and rim supports. The new offering rounds out FastenMaster’s line of Cortex Plugs for all Trex decking options.

Time studies have demonstrated savings of up to 50% with pre-aligned and collated Cortex Plugs when compared with loose plug installation, helping installers save valuable time on the jobsite. Cortex Plugs are made from the same composite material as the deck to create a 100% perfect color and texture match and comes with a warranty for the life of the project.

The new line of collated Cortex Plugs for the Trex Enhance system includes the most popular system colors including, Foggy Wharf, Toasted Sand, Coastal Bluff, Rocky Harbor, Beach Dune, Clamshell, and Saddle.
Each package includes enough fasteners and plugs to install 100 LF of Trex Enhance – assuming two fasteners installed 16-inches on center — along with two setting tools. Weather-resistant plastic tubs are sealed with the Spotter Lid and provide easy jobsite material handling and storage.
