Simpson Strong-Tie, the provider of engineered structural connectors and building solutions, brought its new Yield-Link connection to the recent 2019 NASCC: The Steel Conference held in St. Louis, Mo.

Designed to absorb forces in a seismic event, the Yield-Link connection requires no field welding and allows beams to be designed without supplemental lateral bracing, resulting in fewer fabricated steel elements and field connections.

“The Yield-Link connection helps simplify and streamline structural steel connections made in the field without compromising structural strength” said Tim Ellis, market segment manager for structural steel at Simpson Strong-Tie. “By eliminating field welding, the Yield-Link helps to reduce costs and improve jobsite efficiencies while still delivering a path to safer structural steel construction.”

Produced by the American Institute of Steel Construction, the Steel Conference is an educational and networking event for the structural steel industry, bringing together structural engineers, steel fabricators, erectors and detailers.
