Just a Moment

Simpson Strong-Tie has expanded its line of Strong Frame ordinary moment frames with a 16-foot-tall column and 14-, 18- and 20-foot-wide beams.

This article first appeared in the PB September 2010 issue of Pro Builder.

Simpson Strong-Tie has expanded its line of Strong Frame ordinary moment frames with a 16-foot-tall column and 14-, 18- and 20-foot-wide beams. With more frame configurations, builders and designers have greater design flexibility for larger openings, wider interior clear spans and retrofit solutions. The frames are recommended for standard wall bracing, garage-front and balloon-framing applications. Unlike other moment frames that are welded together, Strong Frame units are bolted together, which reduces costs by eliminating the need for an on-site welder or a special welding inspector.
