Bulb-Tite Rivets

The orginal tri folding aluminium high strength structural rivet with washer

A high performing structural rivet that differs from other types due to its propeller shape blind–side anchor and washer, combining to provide a large weatherproof blind side bearing area. 

The propeller shape anchor gently distributes the clamping force agaist the rear sheet whilst providing excellent pull through resistance, making them an ideal for numerous lightweight panel applications.

The Bulb-tite's wide material grip range enables a single rivet to work in a greater range of thicknesses including curved or uneven surfaces.
