Products are sourced around the world from suppliers who meet the Group's stringent quality requirements. Detailed analysis is carried out of these suppliers to ensure quality is maintained.
The materials to be riveted only have to be reached from one side, which explains the term “Blind” riveting. The rivet is made of two parts namely, the body (shell) and the mandrel (stem). The body is deformed when the rivet is set and it is this part, which clamps and holds the materials together securely.
