Timeless beauty. Tested strength.

With straight edges and chamfered corners, structural connectors in the Outdoor Accents® - Avant Collection have a clean look that complements nearly every design. And with a black powder coat and an innovative washer-and-fastener combo, you can bring both elegant design and structural strength to your outdoor living areas.

Post Base

Outdoor Accents® post bases secure timber columns or posts to concrete, while providing a 25mm standoff height that helps minimise risk of decay and screws in lateral loading of the timber post. These bases accommodate 90mm timber. Install with Outdoor Accents® structural timber screws and hex-head washers for a decorative look.

Deck Joist Tie

The Deck Joist Tie attaches 45mm wide joists to the side of 90mm or larger support posts. It installs quickly and easily with the Outdoor Accents® structural SDWS screw and hex head washer for the look of a bolted connection.

Strap Tie (T Strap & L Strap)

The flat T Strap Tie and L Strap Tie bring decorative flair and lateral strength to your outdoor living space or even an indoor project. They provide reinforcement for connections where one timber piece intersects another at a 90° angle. They're designed to accommodate multiple timber sizes and to be installed with Outdoor Accents® structural timber screws and hex-head washers.

Strap Tie (Flat Strap)

The APVST Flat Strap works for Timber in both nominal and rough sizes. It can be used to connect two beams together or added to any project as a decorative accent. Installs with the Outdoor Accents structural screw and hex-head washer.

Concealed Joist Hanger

The APLH Concealed Joist Hanger is a face‑mounted concealed flange hanger on solid timber sections. Ideal for end of ledger/header or post conditions, it also provides cleaner lines for pergolas.

Joist Hanger

The SAE Face Fix Joist Hanger is a heavy-duty hanger suitable for 45mm joist. Big seat for joists provides greater strength support. Installed with Outdoor Accents® black hex head connector screws.

Hex-Head Washer

The Outdoor Accents® hex-head washer provides the decorative appearance of a bolted connection. Its patent design makes for an easier and significantly faster installation compared to through‑bolting. This washer and screw combination is designed specifically to fasten Outdoor Accents post bases, flat staps, T and L straps, and angles. 

Structural Timber Screw

Outdoor Accents® structural timber screw is combined with the hex-head washer, the solution delivers increased strength and the decorative appeal of a bolted connection with the installation ease of a screw. The SDWS Timber Screw with patented SawTooth™ point allows for faster installation, less torque and requires no pre-drilling. The screw's bold thread design enables superior holding to attach ledgers and other secure connections. The structural screw and washer are both sold separately from the Outdoor Accents connectors.

Angle

Outdoor Accents 90 degree Angles tie together beams, rafters and more. These angles make structural connections between beams and posts stronger and provide consistent, straight corners for a variety of outdoor projects. The APVA90 Angle is designed for use with 90mm or larger post; The APVA50 Angle is designed for use with 45mm rafter.

Decorative Washer

The APVDMW56-M decorative washer installs easily with the structural SDWS Timber screw and hex‑head washer combination and can be used in a variety of timber-to-timber connections.

Connector Screw

The Outdoor Accents® connector screw reduces installation time by driving easily without predrilling. Designed for installation with the Outdoor Accents® angles, joist hangers, the screw's black finish accents any outdoor living project. The sharp point of the screw enables fast starts, and the patented serrated threads reduce torque for improved driveability.
