Fastener and tool provider, CAMO, recently teamed up with deck-building contractor, Simcoe Decks, for the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) National+ Deck Competition. The partners partnered had four winning entries.
“As a system, CAMO provides a fastener and a tool for every application,” said Michael Scott. “We now use CAMO products exclusively because we want to provide the best for our customers,” explained Michael. “It’s an amazingly easy system for my crew to learn — and if we ever have a problem, I know CAMO has our backs.”
Simcoe’s composite deck that won second place in the Alternative Deck Under $25K category and third place in the Deck Inlay category featured an intricate “X” inlay. For the project, CAMO EDGEXMETAL Clips were chosen to fasten grooved composite boards to the deck’s metal frame at any angle, creating the distinctive “X” pattern in their award-winning design.
In addition, Simcoe Decks went from modern to historic, earning Second Place in the award’s Manufacturer Project category and third place in Refinished/Restored Deck category using CAMO EDG Clips. Expertly built with CAMO EDGE Clips, the deck maintained the elegant character of the original deck’s stone-clad supports.
Simcoe Decks relied on the entire CAMO Deck Fastening System to fasten up to five times faster, including CAMO DRIVE stand-up fastening tool and LEVER® board bending and locking tool. CAMO DRIVE saves back strain and gets contractors off their knees, while LEVER enables smaller crews to straighten rows of grooved boards and lock them in place, freeing up both hands for fastening.
