Timber Rivets are high strength fasteners used in conjuction with steel side plates to achieve high-capacity and cost-effective connections in glulam and solid timber.
Advantages of Timber Rivets:
- High load-transfer for a given connector area
- Tight-fit connector, resulting in stiff connections
- No reduction of timber cross-section for holes
- No pre-drilling required
- Easy to install
- Easily inspected in field
Design provisions for Timber Rivets are provided in CAN/CSA O86.1 Engineering Design in Wood (Clause 10.7).
Rivets are sold in 50 lb (22.6 kg) boxes, and are available in 3 lengths: 40mm (1 1/2″), 65mm (2 1/2″), and 90mm (3 1/2″).
