Dome Rivets (also called Pop Rivets or Blind Rivets) are designed to provide a permanent fastening solution between overlaying surfaces. Dome Rivets are designed for ‘blind’ installation, and only require access to one side of the structure for installation. Due to their construction, rivets provide strong resistance to shear forces (perpendicular to the rivet shaft) and can resist light tensioning loads (parallel to the rivet shaft).
The core of a Dome Rivet is called a mandrel, and is pulled into the component during installation to deform and lock the blind end. A Dome Rivet is installed using a specially designed tool, sometimes called a Rivet 'gun'.
Sealed Dome Rivets are similar to standard Dome Rivets, but feature a locking mandrel to create a more secure fastening. Accu’s Solid Rivets range provides a more durable fastening than Pop Rivets, but cannot be installed ‘blind’, and must be deformed from the tail-end.
Dome Rivets are available in both A2 and A4 (Marine Grade) Stainless Steel.
