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 structures up to four stories, providing Designers many possibilites for designing larger structures that are structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing.
