The ever-increasing global popularity of steel frames for domestic house construction grows, meanwhile traditional steel fabrication tech niques, such as MIG welding, blind riveting, bolting etc. are proving too costly, damaging and unreliable to meet the increasing volume and quality required in today’s demanding marketplace.
Consequently, manufacturers world-wide are adopting Henrob self-piercing riveting as the primary method of construction for the steel frames, lintels, floor joists and roof trusses that are used in this method of house construction.
The benefits of using Henrob self-piercing riveting over existing methods of joining zinc-coated steel include:
Henrob use 5mm rivets for steel frame construction, rivet length selection is dependent on material gauges and grades and joint strength requirements.
Henrob provides a full service of joint design, using in-house production and testing facilities to supply joint strength data and corrosion test certification.
Henrob self-pierce rivets compare favorably both in ultimate tensile strength and overall energy absorption with the alternative fixing methods.
