Structural blind fasteners are designed for rapid assembly where high shear and tensile strength is required. Unlike ordinary break stem rivets, in structural breakstem fasteners the mandrel becomes an integral part of the placed fastener – adding considerable strength to the assembled components. Frequently used in the fabrication of commercial vehicles, bus, train, heating/ventilating and heavy-duty enclosures, blind structural fasteners are the fast, strong alternative to nuts and bolts.
Applied from one side only, structural breakstem fasteners allow the use of box sections, extrusions and tubes without compromising strength. Available in a range of materials, structural breakstem fasteners are the ideal solution for any high stress or load bearing application.
