Specialist & Structural Blind Riveting
World renowned, premium quality engineered fasteners for single sided access. Avdel non-structural aluminum rivets have a large blind-side bearing area making them ideal rivets for use in thin sheet or low strength materials. These Avdel rivets are also available in a structural option, containing a visible mechanical lock to give extra strength to the joint.
High speed, blind-sided assembly, offers benefits over conventional mechanical assembly. Speed Fastening is a unique assembly system designed for rapid and reliable fastening in medium and high volume applications. Originally designed for the aviation industry, Speed Fastening Systems are now used by many of the world’s foremost manufacturing companies in sectors as diverse as household goods, lighting, electronic sub-assemblies, light metal fabrication and automotive. Speed fasteners are available in a wide range of materials, finishes, lengths and diameters and are ideal for fastening metals, plastics, composites, and electronic components.
Structural vibration-resistant fasteners with high clamp load performance and multi-grip capabilities. Lockbolt systems are designed for high strength, secure assembly. Quick and simple to place, durable and long lasting, they are the ideal solution where spot welding is not practical and other methods are costly, time consuming or not possible. Avdel lockbolt systems have been widely used for many years in demanding engineering industries throughout the world, including vehicle body building, railways, construction, mining, and containers.
Blind Sealing Plugs
Avseal blind sealing plugs are unique in the efficient sealing performance provided in both low-and high-pressure hole sealing applications. Avseal sealing plugs can be installed rapidly into blind holes and eliminate the need for tapping threads in the application.
Blind Rivet Nuts
Avdel® blind rivet nuts provide a fast, reliable, and cost-effective method for inserting high-quality, load-bearing threads. Available in round, hex, and square body styles, Avdel rivet nuts feature a variety of options and locking features.
