Why use 1" timber rivet T nuts from Jet Press?

Jet Press says its 1" timber rivet Tee Nuts provide you with faster, deeper and straighter Tee Nut insertion. They can help you to achieve a superior quality product whilst maintaining production efficiency.

However, this has not always been the case. Standard knock-in Tee Nuts have been around for many years. These are still widely used wherever a simple but effective thread is required in timber. However, industry demand has prompted the humble Tee Nut to evolve. Jet Press’ manufacturing partner, Sigma in Canada has been at the forefront of this evolution.

During the 1960s the first 4-prong Tee Nut with its familiar 8 sides was manufactured by Sigma. Tee Nuts could be fed efficiently and reliably by machine thus improving speed, accuracy and productivity. Nevertheless, furniture manufacturers faced problems in certain applications with push-out. This was costly to manufacturers as repairs, re-upholstery and scrapping of the furniture was a regular issue.

Jet Press says you can reap many advantages using its 25.5mm rivet Tee Nuts on your 1” timber applications. Greater strength and pull-through resistance combined with a large head, results in a faster, deeper and straighter Tee Nut insertion.

Manufactured from cold forged, thicker gauge steel, these 1” timber rivet Tee Nuts are typically used in the sofa and bed, foot/castor applications, where the extra hold-in is crucial. The metal prongs prevent rotation and the unthreaded rivet portion flares to increase the holding power of the Tee Nut. The result is you achieve a great lead-in and better retention of the castors, legs or feet which then screw into the threaded Tee Nut. You benefit from the Tee Nut resisting push-out along with easier assembly and eliminating the requirement for over-stapling.
