Bay Market Net Discusses The Importance of Rivet Replacement

Following an article published by the Register-Guard, Bay Market Net, the largest single source partner for foreign blind rivet and engineered fastening product manufacturers selling in the US, discusses the importance of rivet maintenance and replacement

Bohemia, NY / myprgenie.com / ACCESSWIRE / May 4, 2014 / Bay Market Net, the largest single source partner for foreign, engineered fastening product and pop rivet manufacturers selling in the United States, discusses the importance of rivet maintenance and replacement for bridges.

According to the article published by the Register-Guard on April 28 titled, “Repairs to bring lane closures, nighttime bridge shutdown,” the historic steel Springfield Bridge in Oregon is closing due to repair and inspection. Built in 1929, the bridge has not been maintenanced in 12 years. The article says it was last repaved in 2002, but workers will begin inspecting and replacing gusset plates, roller bearings and rivets damaged by rust.

“The Transportation Department currently rates the westbound bridge as being in ‘fair’ condition,” the article says. “The possible condition rankings are poor, fair, good and very good. Little said the ratings take into account a number of factors, and a lower ranking doesn’t necessarily indicate the safety status of the structure.”

Michael Eichinger, the vice president and COO of Bay Market Net, the leading partner for foreign pop rivet and fastening product manufacturers, says that replacing the structural components could make this bridge last a long time. “Once the gusset plates, roller bearings and rivets are replaced, this bridge will be in great shape,” he says. “It’s likely that these particular structural components have not been updated since the bridge’s construction. With new rivets and roller bearings, the bridge will be able to flex and move without buckling.”

Eichinger says it’s important to maintain structures by checking their fasteners and other components periodically. “By ensuring all components are well managed, the structure will remain safe to use.”

Bay Market Net is the largest single source partner for foreign manufacturers of engineered fastening products selling in the United States. Established by Bay Fastening Systems, Bay Market Net provides its services at no cost to the manufacturer including warehousing, inventory management, thousands of technical sales personnel, distribution logistics, and marketing to maximize product sales to the entire $15 billion United States market. Bay Market Net eliminates the risks foreign blind rivet and pop rivet manufacturers might face when establishing a foothold in the American market.
