Spanish term or phrase: grapa vista
Buenas tardes:

Estoy traduciendo un texto de una compañía maderera sobre la instalación de rastreles en tarimas exteriores. Me surge la duda ante este término que he traducido como "visible fastener", pero del que no estoy muy seguro. Os dejo un poco de contexto:

"Nuestro perfil HH “Grapa Vista”, se instala con una separación entre tablas de 5mm teniendo una tolerancia de +/- 2mm, dependiendo de la época del año y humedad ambiental."


Os dejo un enlace con la foto de la grapa vista:

Muchas gracias

English translation:visible clip
Explanation:
Considero que "siding" se refiere a la aplicación, y no al tipo de grapa.
Por eso recomiendo utilizar "clip". "visible clip" en oposición a "hidden clip"

The translation was already submitted. I translated it as "visible clip", but I think you both are right and both terms worked. I've just found more matches on google with "deck fastener", but "deck clip" is also ok. Thank you for your help.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks Luis Loo


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Muriel Vasconcellos: Yes, I think the Asker's image is a profile of the clip, though the type of installation is different from your images. (I installed a piece of ipê decking with clips like the ones in your link.) I don't think 'fasteners' would be wrong, either.

  -> I agree, "fastener" is also used instead of "clip" for such parts. Therefore the alternative would be "visible fastener". Although equivalent clips/fasteners are used for siding, the OP's reference is describing decking applications. Thanks Muriel!
