Title: DECKING CLIP
Abstract:
A decking clip (10) for anchoring a pair of decking panels or boards (20D1, 20D2) to one or more underlying joists or other support members and relative to each other, the clip (10) comprising: a spine (12A, 12B) comprising anchoring means (18) for anchoring the clip (10) to a respective joist or other support member, and a pair of lateral flange extensions (14, 16) extending in generally opposite lateral directions from the spine (12A, 12B) and each being configured for location in a respective lateral edge groove or channel (22G1, 22G2) formed in a respective edge face of a respective one of the pair of panels or boards (20D1, 20D2), wherein the spine (12A, 12B) comprises: first (12A) and second (12B) spine portions extending, respectively, in first and second generally transverse and mutually opposite directions away from the flange extensions (14, 16), wherein the lengths in a transverse direction of the first (12A) and second (12B) spine portions are different from each other. As a result of the different lengths of the respective first and second spine portions (12A, 2B), the decking clip (10) may be utilised with different species of decking panels or boards (20D1, 20D2) which have their respective edge face grooves or channels (22G1, 22G2) offset by differing distances from their respective median planes (M1, M2).
