FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
KEBONY NOW SELLING DECKING DIRECT-TO-CONSUMER
Award-Winning Kebony Deck Board, which Accommodates Four Different Types of Fasteners, Now Available Online Through the Company’s US Website
St. Clair, MI – Feb. 18, 2021 – Modified wood decking and cladding manufacturer Kebony today announced the launch of Kebony Direct, a new online system for consumers to purchase the company’s award-winning Deck Board and fasteners, according to Kebony US Director Andy Hehl.
“The response for our KebonyDeck Board products, which we launched officially last year, has been overwhelming,” Hehl said. “And given its ease of installation using four different fastening options, our simple three-step ordering process is something both professional deck builders and weekend warriors will love.”
- Step-Clip™ for Kebony, which uses easy to install strips to minimize the time and labor spent fastening the deck.
- Fastenator® hidden fastener clips that secure the deck without screwing into the board’s face.
- Pro Plug® System for Kebony, which enablespositive lateral connection of fastening through the face along with a smooth, uniform surface.
- Customer-provided stainless steel screws through the face of our Kebony Deck Board can also be used. Kebony recommends placing the screws 1” from the edge of the board.
Online orders typically arrive within one to two weeks. Orders totaling 1,000 or more lineal feet qualify for free shipping.
The Kebony Deck Board comes with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty against rot, with no maintenance required and a 50-75 year expected lifespan. It evenly fades to silver-gray patina when left unfinished.
