Grad is an ‘invisible fixing’ clip based system, for the rapid installation of decks and vertical cladding. The product can be supplied by the Outdoor Deck Company as anything from individual clips (for bespoke board sizes) to a complete system of pedestals, rails and boards for covering very large areas quickly and economically.

The unique clip and groove design at the heart of the Grad system means that decks can be installed about 30% faster than competing products. Once installed, a Grad deck will resist 300Kgs of uplift, and yet each board can be easily and quickly removed, without any marking or damage to the face of the material (a common problem with other hidden fixing systems).

The Grad system can be retrofitted onto existing timber joists, installed from scratch on top of a new timber sub-frame, or mounted onto the bespoke Grad rail system – where finished build-ups as low as 50mm are possible.

The Grad concept offers a choice of ‘clip ready’ timber or composite boards as part of the system – or we can machine most hardwoods to take advantage of the unique rapid fixing advantages this product offers.

Designed and manufactured in France, Grad have been refining and improving their invisible fixings system since 1988. As the exclusive importers, we are now confident that the Grad technology offers the very best combination of speed, strength, flexibility, accuracy, durability and economy that you will find in any decking or cladding product across the UK.
