FC43® Panel Fastener
The FC43® panel fastener is the latest structural panel fastener from Howmet Fastening Systems. This panel fastener has an advanced solid stud design that provides superior shear and tensile strength while offering additional features over existing designs. The FC43® structural panel fastener is self-retaining/self-captivated and has “hold-out” capability in all positions. Because this model has fewer components, it reduces inventory costs and simplifies installation. Additionally, the FC43® structural panel fastener’s large strength-to-size ratio results in higher weight savings potential.
