Structural Rivets are high strength rivets with mechanically locked mandrels. As a result the maintain a watertight, vibration resistant connection between multiple materials.
Because Structural have locking mandrels they are used in aerospace, truck, trailer and automotive applications. Unlike other blind rivets the mandrel is maintained when set creating a high shear and tensile joint.
SR Series rivets give advantages over welding. They can be installed at any time during the assembly process, even after painting or plating. Consequently Welding heats and distorts metals causing assembly issues.
Two Pioneer manufacturers of high strength rivets are Huck® and Avdel® (now Stanley Engineered Fastening). Huck® have had rivets such as MagaLok®, MagnaBulb®, and Hucklok® on the market for many years. Avdel® staples in structural rivets include the Monobolt®, Interlock®, Hemlock® and Avibulb XT.
On the whole, structural rivets are an excellent option when you require a high strength joint for critical applications. For example we have customers manufacturing components for aerospace. In addition we deal with ute and canopy manufactures seeking a high quality and durable way to assemble their products.
Finally, if you require assistance on finding the right rivet for the job we are here to help. Experience with a wide cross section of customers and industries has allowed us to develop a great knowledge base that we are happy to share with our customers. Thanks for reading and happy riveting!
