RIVET TYPE FASTENERS
Closed End Rivets (Sealed)
Closed end rivets differ from a standard blind pop rivet in that they feature a closed end which creates a watertight seal.
Large Flange Rivets
Large flange, also called Oversize, pop rivets have a larger washer on the hat than standard rivets. Also known as blind rivets, they are used to connect two pieces of material in quick, efficient way. Large flange rivets are tubular, comprised of a hat and mandrel; the length of the mandrel is snapped off when installed.
Coloured rivets are open end pop rivets. Coloured rivets have a hat that has been painted wither brown, black or white. These colours are used either to hide rivets and create a finished look or to make them extra visual by using the opposing colour from the installation material.
Multi-grip rivets are often used to substitute conventional rivets where the thickness of installation materials can vary. The rivet simply expands to the size(within its range) and holds the two materials together.
Structural rivets are used to create a stronger assembly than standard stainless steel pop rivets. They generate an intense amount of force and require a different tool to apply than a regular rivet.
Half Stainless Steel Rivets - Open Ended SSS Type
Stainless steel body with a steel mandrel. Ideal for use in applications where corrosion needs to be prevented.
The rivet splits for superior holding power. Ideal for use where rear access is restricted and the use of a washer is not possible.
Easily fastened using a rivet setter. The rivet does not loosen easily and provides a reliable fastening solution.
One of the oldest and most reliable types of fasteners. They consist simply of a solid head and a shaft that can be deformed with a hammer or rivet gun. Typically used where safety and reliability is of main concern.
Blind Rivets (Open End)
Blind rivets are used to connect two pieces of material in quick, efficient way. Blind Rivets are tubular, comprised of a hat and mandrel; the length of the mandrel is snapped off when installed.
Countersunk rivets, also called flat rivets, are used to connect two pieces of material in quick, efficient way. The hat of the rivet is almost inverted, with a 120 degree countersink in the integrated washer. Rivets are tubular, comprised of a hat and mandrel; the length of the mandrel is snapped off when installed.
