A number of building and manufacturing industries rely on heavy-duty rivet guns for various types of applications. This gun is the perfect tool for versatility, reliability and strength making rivets the world’s best fasteners. 

Hand tools can only do so much. That’s why using heavy-duty rivet tools like ours is best for getting the job done easily and handling the volume of your rivet installation. Selecting the right type of stainless steel rivets depends on many factors and the features of the gun that is most necessary to you. For this reason, it’s essential to consider what you need the gun to do.

What Are Heavy-Duty Steel Rivets?

A rivet gun is a hand-held device and is used to insert and secure rivets into materials like metal, plastic, and leather. A rivet is a tiny, cylindrical piece of metal having a head and a tail on either end.

In addition to assembling furniture and building metal buildings, rivet guns may be used for a variety of tasks, such as placing gear on boats and airplanes. Depending on the kind of rivet and the materials being secured, they come in a variety of shapes and various sizes. While some rivet guns need compressed air to function, others may be powered by a small generator or trigger.

What is Riveting and What Are Rivet Guns Used For?

Riveting is a type of permanent mechanical fastener with numerous applications across commercial and industrial sectors. Plates of metal and even softer materials can be joined together with correctly set rivets. 

Riveting can be done using hand-operated tools, however, this can be quite taxing on the hands and arms where large volumes of rivets are required.

A heavy-duty rivet gun, either pneumatic or battery-operated, offers a more efficient solution for larger projects that require many rivets. A heavy-duty rivet tool is designed to be lightweight and easy to handle.

Heavy Duty Pop Riveter

Pop rivets are perfect for situations when access to the rear side of a panel is restricted. These are a type of blind fastener that can be inserted and set from one side of the panel. 

A rivet is inserted into a pre-drilled hole and a pop riveter pulls the mandrel through the body and sets it on the other side. Pop rivets work as great alternatives to welds and screws as they do not distort the base material.

Lightweight Heavy-Duty Rivet Tools

We offer a selection of heavy-duty pop riveters that can set blind rivets in aluminium, steel, and stainless steel. Each tool is designed to be lightweight and portable, making it easy to move efficiently around any worksite. 

Our battery-powered riveters also save you from the hassle of being tethered to a compressed air line. Shop at our online store today or get in touch with your team for additional service and assistance.


Dafra understands that no two projects are the same. No matter the application, we can supply a heavy-duty pop riveter to fit your project requirements.


Benefits of Heavy-Duty Rivet Tools 

One of the many benefits of heavy-duty rivet tools is their ease of use. Attaching rivets to pneumatic rivet guns is easy and you can attach a lot in no time without tiring your hand. This gun is suitable for riveting without the need for a wrench behind the panel to grip the nut. In addition, you don’t have to squeeze the handles as you do with manual guns. Air rivet guns don't strain your arms as they are lightweight.

Safety is another benefit of heavy-duty rivet guns since cables are a safety problem on factory floors and building sites.  Your workplace is uncluttered with a cordless rivet gun, which enhances your safety.

Heavy Duty Pop Rivet Gun

Heavy duty pop rivet guns are used across many commercial and industrial applications from manufacturing to construction. We offer a selection of quality pop riveters that are ergonomically designed for comfortable operation. Each tool comes as a kit that includes nose pieces in several sizes.
