Two rivet types that are claimed to be new to this country are included in the range of Gesipa blind rivets that is marketed by Rivetcraft Ltd. Standard rivets are available in four diameters in stainless steel, steel, aluminium alloy and copper.
The new rivets in the range are profile-clinching and threaded types. The profileclinching rivet is designed for fixing metal profiles that are common to many industrial applications, including vehicle bodybuilding. Installed in the same way as any other blind rivet with a similar tool, the threaded rivet leaves a threaded stud protruding from the work and thereby ensures that the designer can accommodate speed-of-access features without having to sacrifice the flexibility of the blind rivet. Marketed by: Rivetcraft Ltd, Dalton Lane, Keighley, Yorkshire.
