Mechanical Fastening Systems
Looking for the right mechanical fasteners for your belt splicing?
All State Conveyors understands choosing the proper mechanical belt fastener for conveyor belt splicing or repairs is an important step to ensure that there is sufficient grip formed between the two joining belts to avoid separation.
ASC stocks a comprehensive range of Flexco® light and heavy-duty mechanical belt fasteners with a choice of wire hook, plates and hinges. These mechanical fasteners possess surprising strength, durability, and affordability with easy quick installation, to assist with your belt splicing and belt repairs.
ASC Offered Mechanical Fasteners Solutions
All State Conveyors (ASC) stocks and distributes a broad range of Flexco®’s plate, hinge and mechanical fasteners for conveyor belt splicing or repairs. These robust fasteners are suited to numerous conveyor belt operating tensions (PIW). ASC’s vast stock holding ensures we provide quick delivery to you each and every time.
ASC’s fasteners feature low profiles with substantial grip that adheres to almost any belt carcass by piercing the carcass fibres without damaging them. Their teeth like features literally “push” the fibres aside, passing between them to embed the fastener in the belt and securing a solid grip. We supply mechanical conveyor belt fasteners in a number of ways:
We Supply Mechanical Conveyor Belt Fasteners in a Number of Ways:
- By the full box or pack
- By the loosebox
- A complete fastener for a specific belt width for you to install into your own belt, or a belt supplied by us
- By contracting a ASC serviceman to install a fastener into your own belt, or a belt supplied by us
All State Conveyors provides mechanical belt fastener installation services, with the repair or splice either attended to at your site or in our workshop, depending on your requirements. Our technicians are highly skilled and committed to providing timely, fast turnaround and reliable work.
Did You Know? Repair Bands or Patches can be used for the reinforcing and protection of your belt splice, to minimise seepage from small debris sifting through the joint, which will eventually cause wear and abrasion? Speak to our belt specialist for more details.
Plates and Hinged Fasteners to Fit Your Requirements
When a conveyor belt requires joining or is being repaired, choosing the proper mechanical belt fastener is a critically important step. These fasteners are also an ideal belt repair option for remote field operations and more so, when you have a breakdown and need to get production back on track as quick as possible. With surprising strength, durability, affordability and easy installation, mechanical belt fasteners are a clever option.

Flexco® Plate and Hinge Fasteners Selections
Sift-free Bolt Solid Plate Fasteners
Some mechanical splices have issues with material sifting through the joins however Bolt Solid Plates produce a substantial solid bond that results in a sift-free splice. This is the result of a combination of compressed top-and-bottom plates and high-tensile-strength bolts.
Mechanical fastener rating is from 150 – 560 PIW (30 – 100 kN/m)
Belts Thickness: 5mm – 24mm
Minimum Pulley Diameters: 300mm – 1220mm
Secure your conveyed materials such as sand, gravel, crushed rock and cement with this impenetrable sift-free splice.

Quick Interchange Bolt Hinged Fasteners
Bolt hinged fasteners are ideal for conveyor belt applications subjected to length adjustments because the joint can be separated easily by removing the hinge pin, making the process relatively quick. The combination of penetration and compression delivers strength and reliability to belts operating over smaller pulleys.
Mechanical fastener rating from 190 – 300 PIW (33 – 52 kN/m)
Belts Thickness: 6 mm – 16 mm
Minimum Pulley Diameters: 150 mm – 225 mm
This bolt hinged fastener is great when applied to belts which operate over small pulleys.

Rivet Hinged Fasteners
Ideal to use with rubber-plied and PVC solid woven belting or for worn belts that are unfit for vulcanised splicing, delivering performance and long life with easy installation.
Mechanical fastener rating from 330 – 2000 PIW (60 – 350 kN/m)
Belts Thickness: 3mm – 25.5mm after skiving
Minimum Pulley Diameters: 125mm to 150mm
Rivet hinged fasteners offer maximum resistance for pull outs and are perfect for worn belting unfit for vulcanising.

Staple fasteners are a reliable, narrow-looped staple for splicing which is ideal for light end mining operations especially when working with plied rubber and for PVC belting.
Mechanical fastener rating up to 800 PIW (140 kN/m)
Belts thickness: 6mm to 14mm
Minimum Pulley Diameters: 225mm – 300mm
Available in steel and stainless steel. The bevelled edges and recessed staple pockets deliver a low-profile splice.
