A design pattern composed of two to eight Riv-Nails allows for the fasteners to be clinched for maximum pull-out resistance — as the pilot nails do not cut the fabric, but divide it, and allow the rivets to slide between fill and warp yarns.
The Riv-Nail is a compression fastener and, as such, does not rely entirely on the belt fabric for resistance to fastener pull-out.
Suitable for belt thickness applications 7-22mm and numerous configurations such as R2, R3, R4, R5, R5-1/2, R6 and R8, the CAI Riv-Nail is a perfect solution for quick easy belt maintenance.
CAI also manufactures a range of manual and automated installation tools to make the installation safe, simple and perfect every time.
Riv-Nails are also available in a range of materials to suit the specific application.
- Self Setting Rivets in various patterns maximise strength within the belt without damaging the belt carcass
- Easy hinge pin removal to make belt installation and removal easier in tight situations
- Cross Scored fastener strips mean any strip can be broken down to match belt width and allows the fastener to trough effectively.
