Receptacles are available in several styles. There are many options but, the most important distinction to make is do you want to use fixed depth or adjustable depth receptacles as this will greatly affect the stud selection process. The original standard system used fixed depth receptacles and various stud lengths to fit different panel thicknesses. This configuration is limited to small variations in material thickness (0.030") from one stud length to the next. Later, MilSpec developed an adjustable depth receptacle which allows a much wider material thickness range for a given stud length than the original design (0.300"). This not only simplifies the installation but dramatically reduces inventory costs for the fabricator. For your convenience, we stock both fixed depth and adjustable depth styles.
If the materials to be fastened are of a consistent thickness at each fastener location either type will work very well. If the thickness is variable at different fastener locations it is recommended that the adjustable depth receptacles for ease of use. After selecting the basic type of receptacle to be used, refer to the table below to select from the various styles, options, materials, etc. Please also see the Specifications Document below when making your decision.
The receptacles are usually attached to the support (inside) panel with rivets. The Rigid Style is a fixed depth, solid, machined piece. This style does not allow for misalignment of fastener to receptacle holes. They are available with plain rivet holes (most common) or countersunk rivet holes. The countersunk rivet holes allow relief for receptacles to be attached to thin sheet metal panels that have dimpled holes for flush attachment rivets. Various materials are available for any receptacle type or style.
