Accu’s standard Rivet range is made up of Dome Rivets (also known as Blind Rivets or Pop Rivets) which are hollow, and fitted with a central mandrel, which allow the component to be easily installed from just one side. Blind Rivets are also available in two other varieties, Countersunk Rivets, for use in countersunk holes, and Sealed Dome Rivets, which feature a locking mandrel for a more secure fastening.
Alternative Rivet types within Accu’s Rivet range are Solid Rivets and Countersunk Solid Rivets, which are more durable due to their solid construction. Solid Rivets must be manually deformed from the tail-end during installation, making them more difficult to fit than standard Dome Rivets.
Rivet Nuts (also called Rivnuts) are available in both flat and countersunk varieties. These components feature an internally threaded sleeve which is designed to be fitted to sheet metal. Rivet Nuts are locked in place by the tightening of the accompanying screw, which slightly deforms the sleeve, creating a secure and permanent fastening.
