Blind rivets shall be stainless steel with 1/8 inch nominal
diameter shank. Rivets shall be threaded stem type if used for
other than fastening of trim. Rivets with hollow stems shall have
Bolts shall not be less than 1/4 inch diameter, shoulders or plain
shank as required with proper nuts.
Provide overside washers with an outside diameter of 1 inch at each
fastener or a 22-gauge thick metal strip along each valley of the
panel to negate pull-out of the panel around the fasteners.
