1. Structural Steel Rivets.
This type of rivet was widely used to join structural steels but has been largely replaced by the use of high-strength bolts as they do not require skilled workers to install and tighten these bolts.
Structural blind rivets offer a wide grip range for versatility and are designed for high strength and excellent clamp force. Structural rivets also include a mechanical lock feature that ensures 100% mandrel retention, and the mandrel fills the rivet for enhanced shear strength.
Structural rivets work slightly differently from the typical blind rivet. A structural blind rivet has a built-in (internal) locking mechanism that is designed to hold the mandrel inside of the rivet after the exposed portion snaps. This is commonly referred to as an interlock rivet. Notice how in the diagram to the right, the portion of the mandrel to the left of the hat is also much larger in a structural rivet than in a standard pop rivet.
There are several reasons structural rivets keep the mandrel locked inside the hat once installed:
*Increased Shear Strength
*Increased Pullout Strength
*Higher Resistance To Vibrations
*In some cases, they are also said to be considered weather-proof
