Attaching Honeycomb Floor Panels with Press-Fit Inserts
Aircraft flooring is made from honeycomb panels, which are attached to the aircraft using hundreds of fasteners. The press-fit plug and sleeve style inserts are commonly referred to as "Floor Panel Inserts" because they are widely used in aircraft flooring to fasten the panels to the aircraft structure. They are installed from both sides of the panel and require adhesive bonding of plug and sleeve to panel face skins. However, they can be used anywhere a through hole fastener is desired, where very high load carrying capabilities are considered necessary and insert protrusion out of the panel is not a problem. Each press-fit insert is capable of carrying over a 2,000-lb load, depending on the panel type.
