Strong Frame® Moment Frames

Expand Your Frame of Reference

No longer are moment frames time-intensive and labor-intensive to install. The Strong Frame special and ordinary moment frames by Simpson Strong-Tie are cost-effective alternatives to traditional, site-built moment frames.

Our moment frames offer the level of quality and innovation that has become synonymous with Simpson Strong-Tie. Our special moment frames feature Yield-Link® Structural Fuses that enable frames to be repaired after a seismic event by removing the yielded fuses and bolting on new ones. The frame can remain in the structure during repair. With 100% bolted connections, there is no need for welding, which reduces the risk of fire.

Multi-Story and Multi-Bay Designs

The Strong Frame special moment frame has proven to perform exceptionally well in multi-story and multi-bay structures, providing Designers many possibilities for designing larger structures that are structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing.
