Flexco® SR™ Rivet Hinged Fastener

Supplier: Flexco

Flexco is proud to be the fastener of choice in the underground mining industry. It delivers the performance, long life and easy installation that maximizes belt availability and helps keep productivity on a roll.


Designed for rubber plied and PVC solid woven belting, and for worn belts unfit for vulcanized splices, the Flexco® SR™ Scalloped Edge™ fastener features a low profile that significantly reduces the fastener’s exposure to cleaner blades, skirt rubber, and return idlers.

The staggered rivet pattern also provides maximum holding ability by allowing the rivets to pass between the carcass fibers without damaging them.

A built-in viewport simplifies fastener positioning. And self-setting rivets are installed from the top side of the belt for faster installation.

Hinged construction makes Rivet Hinged fasteners ideal for applications requiring frequent belt-length alterations, the joint can be separated simply by removing the hinge pin. A variety of hinge pins are available to match your application.
