FastenMaster, a division of OMG Inc., has expanded its popular Cortex hidden fastening line with seven new colors of pre-aligned, Collated Cortex Plugs for the Trex Enhance decking system, which rounds out the line of Cortex Plugs for all Trex decking options.
When compared with loose plug installation, time studies have demonstrated savings of up to 50% with pre-aligned and collated Cortex Plugs, 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 the Trex Enhance system includes the most popular system colors including, Foggy Wharf, Toasted Sand, Coastal Bluff, Rocky Harbor, Beach Dune, Clamshell and Saddle.

In addition, fasteners and plugs are packaged in weather tight plastic tubs for easy material handling and storage, and each package includes FastenMaster’s exclusive Spotter® Lid guide specifically designed for proper Trex Enhance board installation on joists and rim supports.
