As summer approaches and families across North America begin to spend more time together, deck safety must remain a top priority. National Nail’s CAMO® deck fastening brand partners with the North American Deck & Railing Association’s (NADRA) Deck Safety Month® in May to encourage deck safety for contractors and homeowners.

“As a NADRA Deck Safety Ambassador, we encourage homeowners to inspect their decks to make sure they’re ready for summer entertaining,” said W. Scott Baker, CEO, National Nail. “We pride ourselves on offering the better way to build a deck—and we care just as much about the installation experience as we do about the deck’s integrity in the long haul. That’s why we create fasteners that reduce lateral movement and have higher uplift holding power giving homeowners peace of mind that their deck is a safe gathering space for family and friends.”

CAMO and NADRA urge homeowners and contractors to inspect their decks for deterioration of structural materials from water, climate factors and the corrosion of structural fasteners and connectors. NADRA recommends locating a local ASHI-certified home inspector or knowledgeable deck builder to assure decks are safe and code-compliant for peace of mind.

“This year more than ever, everyone is excited to get back outdoors with their loved ones, but please help keep them safe and check your deck before gathering,” said Mike Beaudry, Executive Vice President, NADRA. “May’s Deck Safety Month is the perfect opportunity to remind homeowners and contractors to evaluate deck safety ahead of the summer season.” NADRA’s free “10-Point Consumer Safety Checklist” can be found at

With CAMO, homeowners get safer, more stable decks, while contractors benefit from faster installations that reduce labor, time and ultimately, jobsite fatigue. The award-winning CAMO® Deck Fastening System allows deck builders to achieve a fastener-free surface in less time than traditional methods. Combining CAMO’s tools and fasteners like the DRIVE™ stand-up fastening tool, LEVER® board bending and locking tool and Universal Deck Clips help contractors complete safe deck installations up to 5X faster.
