Flexco® Plate Fasteners
140mm, 190mm, Copper 140mm

Flexco® Bolt Solid Plate fasteners are engineered to meet the demands of the toughest material handling applications, providing a strong sift-free splice and superior holding ability. A choice of sizes accommodates belts from 3/16″ (5 mm) to over 15/16″ (24 mm) thick.

High strength is the result of superior design and plate compression on both the top and bottom sides of the belt. High tensile strength bolts compress top and bottom plates to distribute splice tension evenly across the entire width of each fastener plate. For added strength and pull-out resistance, specially formed teeth penetrate deep into the belt carcass – without damaging carcass fibers.

Flexco® R2 / R5

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. Reduced wear and tear on the fastener extends the life of the splice to maximize belt availability and to help 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 fastener features a patented Scalloped Edge design. The scalloped design contributes to improved fastener profile resulting in increased compatibility with belt cleaners and improved cleaner-tip wear. The staggered rivet pattern also provides maximum holding ability by allowing the rivets to pass between the carcass fibers without damaging them.

Other Tools

Belt Punches

Belt Punches or Boring Bits are used to punch holes through the belt. A punch is preferred for general use where belt cover is over 3/16″ (5mm) thick.


Power Wrenches and Wrenches, designed to be used in a carpenter’s brace, are used to tighten the nuts of the bolt fasteners. These wrenches are the best, easiest and quickest way of tightening down nuts on plate fasteners.

All types of clips and clipping products can be supplied and/or fitted on site.
