Steel Connection Eliminates Field Welding

Simpson Strong-Tie’s Yield-Link connection simplifies and streamlines structural-steel connections made in the field without compromising structural strength.

Simpson Strong-Tie’s Yield-Link connection simplifies and streamlines structural-steel connections made in the field without compromising structural strength. The Yield-Link connection requires no field welding, resulting in reduced onsite labor costs, licensing fees and construction time. By eliminating field welding, the Yield-Link connection also removes the need for field weld inspections. And because beams can be designed without supplemental lateral bracing, fewer fabricated steel elements and field connections are required. With a smaller restricted zone, MEP coordination is eased. Yield-Link is designed to absorb forces in a seismic event and, as a bolted connection, it is easier to replace than welded beams and posts, which simplifies repairs following a natural disaster.
