The connections in DuraFuse Frames are easy to fabricate and incorporate a revolutionary fuse-plate. In the shop, cover-plates are fillet-welded to the column flange and bars are fillet-welded to the cover-plates. In the field, a fuse-plate is bolted to the column assembly prior to hoisting. The beam drops into position and is bolted to the shear-tab and bars. No field-welding or inspection is required.
Tip: The Resources section of the website has downloadable plugins for TEKLA, SDS2, and REVIT to make modeling and detailing easy.
