The world of fasteners encompasses a broad range of products, including bolts, screws, nuts, latches, spacers, and rivets – all available in Canada from Gould Fasteners, a major supplier and distributor of industrial fastening products. The company’s inventory includes a broad variety of rivets, ranging from standard to blind designs, all of which have been produced by first-rate North American manufacturers with established reputations for skill and high quality.
The design of a rivet makes it most recommended for shear loads, or loads perpendicular to the shaft axis. Rivets are most common in applications requiring light weight and high strength, particularly in the aerospace sector and in certain types of machine or structure building.
Types of rivets offered by Gould Fasteners include open-end, closed-end, multi-grip, Quik-Snap, and self-piercing. There are also many head styles from which to choose, including dome, large-flange, and countersunk. Respected rivet manufacturers with whom Gould Fasteners supplies include, Micro Plastics, Richco/Essentra Components, Stanley Engineered Fastening and Avdel.
Made of many different materials, Gould Fasteners’ rivets offer strength, versatility, and cost-efficiency. As with the distributor’s many other products, a statistical quantity is always pre-inspected for quality prior to shipment to customers, reducing the chances of inconvenient returns or exchanges.
Since 1979, Gould Fasteners has grown in reputation as a distributor of high-quality fasteners. Contact the Gould team for quotes or to learn more about rivets.
