Fence Quarter, LLC Announces The Debut of its Carbon Fiber FAIL NOT Hardware System: The First of its King Used in Wood Deck Railings

For Immediate Release: February 12, 2020

LYNNWOOD, WA —Fence Quarter, LLC has done it again with another industry first that is changing the construction industry for the better. The company has launched its patent pending FAIL NOT carbon fiber supplement, a durable piece of hardware that can be incorporated into a wood deck railing for added support. This type of hardware system is especially beneficial for balconies and patios that require additional railing support, such as installations on the first or second floors. 

The Deck Railing Panels provided by Fence Quarter offer a beautiful and easy to install solution for homes of all sizes and styles. Like the company’s patented wood deck railing inserts, the FAIL NOT was inspired by the founding team’s extensive field experience. The team sought to create innovative tools that effectively simplify and streamline the otherwise time-consuming, costly as well as frustrating experiences that many homeowners and construction companies experience when installing, building, and maintaining porches or decks. Like the pre-assembled deck railing inserts, the FAIL NOT is made from the highest quality material, is easy to install, and delivers long-lasting results. 

The FAIL NOT patent pending hardware system is the strongest insert on the market, exceeding Building Code requirements by over 11 times. It is made using carbon fiber and designed to withstand temperatures beyond 120 °F. Like all Fence Quarter products, the FAIL NOT hardware system is designed to be highly functional and aesthetically pleasing. In fact, after installation the only component of the FAIL NOT system that can be seen are the stainless-steel security screws.

Unlike other support systems, the FAIL NOT is uniquely designed so that homeowners can readily remove their deck railing inserts for regular maintenance or for changing to another one of Fence Quarter’s unique designs.  In short, the carbon fiber support system only needs to be installed once, which saves time and reduces costs, while delivering a lower environmental footprint because the carbon fiber is made in the USA from 100 percent recycled materials. 

The FAIL NOT, as well as the entire debut line of Fence Quarter products, is now available for purchase. To learn more, contact Fence Quarter by calling Toll Free 800-205-0128, emailing sales@fencequarter.com, or visiting www.FenceQuarter.com.

New Decorative Hardware Brings Strength and Beauty to Outdoor Living Structures 

Outdoor Accents® decorative hardware is a new line of connectors and fasteners from Simpson Strong-Tie that provides both design elegance and structural strength to custom outdoor living structures. This load-rated, patent-pending hardware accommodates 4x and 6x lumber sizes, providing the flexibility installers and Designers need when designing and building custom outdoor structures.

The new mission style connectors, which include post bases, strap ties and angles, are made from galvanized steel with a black powder-coat finish for corrosion protection. The fasteners are all exterior rated and also feature a black powder-coat finish.

A key feature of Outdoor Accents is an innovative hex-head washer that is used with a structural wood screw to offer the look of a bolted connection with the installation ease of a screw. The patent-pending design of the washer makes for an easier and significantly faster installation compared to through-bolting. It is code listed (IAPMO UES ER-192) and is designed exclusively to help fasten Outdoor Accents post bases, T and L straps, and angles.

“We are excited to offer our customers such an attractive hardware line that combines easy installation with load strength,” said Sam Hensen, vice president and general manager for Connectors and Lateral Systems.

 Key features of Outdoor Accents:

  • Post bases secure wood columns to concrete, while providing a 1″ standoff height that helps reduce decay
  • Flat T and L strap ties bring decorative appeal and lateral strength to outdoor living spaces as well as indoor projects
  • Fastener and washer create decorative bolt-like connections, but install with the ease of a screw and without predrilling
  • Structural strength tested and approved to meet stringent building codes for high-wind or seismic conditions
  • Galvanized steel with a black powder coat provides corrosion protection
  • Patent-pending design facilitates easy installation
