In the Moment

Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced newly validated slope beam and multi-axis moment applications for its Yield-Link moment connection for structural steel construction.

Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced newly validated slope beam and multi-axis moment applications for its Yield-Link moment connection for structural steel construction.

Designed to absorb forces in a seismic or high wind event, the Yield-Link moment connection requires no field welding and allows beams to be designed without supplemental lateral bracing. Fewer fabricated steel elements and field connections are needed, which reduces onsite labor costs and construction time for contractors facing a shortage of skilled welders.

Following extensive analysis, Simpson Strong-Tie engineers developed two related solutions—for sloped structural beam applications and for multi-axis connections.
