Simpson Strong Tie Yield-Link Moment Connection Leads Innovations at NASCC Steel Conference

Simpson is bringing a full suite of structural steel solutions to the 2022 NASCC Steel Conference March 23–25 in Denver, Colorado.

Simpson Strong-Tie, the leader in engineered structural connectors and building solutions, will bring its innovative Yield-Link® moment connection, along with a full suite of structural steel solutions, to the 2022 NASCC Steel Conference March 23–25 in Denver, CO.

Held annually by the American Institute of Steel Construction, “The Steel Conference” is the premier educational and networking event for the structural steel industry, bringing together structural engineers, structural steel fabricators, erectors, detailers, and architects. Conference attendees interested in a hands-on introduction to the Yield-Link moment connection and other structural steel solutions can visit Simpson Strong-Tie at Booth #2016.

Designed to absorb forces in a seismic event, the Yield-Link moment connection requires no field welding and allows beams to be designed without supplemental lateral bracing, resulting in fewer fabricated steel elements and field connections to help reduce onsite labor costs, licensing fees and construction time for contractors.

For more than 65 years, Simpson Strong-Tie has focused on creating structural products and software solutions that help people build safer and stronger structures. Simpson Strong-Tie was one of the first companies to develop connectors specifically for steel framing. Today, we continue to invest in product research and development to offer our customers connectors, fasteners, anchors, steel shearwalls, and special moment frames featuring the innovative Yield-Link connection.
