The Yield-Link brace connection (YLBC) is an innovative solution for isolating damage while ensuring brace frames within structural steel buildings remain intact during a seismic or wind event. With pre-designed, bolted connections, it simplifies design work, eliminates the need for field welding, and is easy to incorporate into new builds or retrofits. YLBC gives fabricators, erectors, engineers, building owners, and contractors a proven, efficient, and more economical solution for structural steel.
Ensure a highly resilient steel structure with the Yield-Link® brace connection from Simpson Strong-Tie. This innovative connection isolates damage to a replaceable yielding element while the brace frame remains intact.
Yield-Link brace connection software and design support services provide the functionality and technical expertise to help you quickly develop, model and document complete designs according to your projects unique specifications—all while staying on time and within budget.
