DURAFUSE FRAMES

       
DuraFuse Frames are field-bolted steel moment frames that are repairable after severe earthquakes. Where typical special moment frames sacrifice the beams in order to protect the connections and columns during severe earthquakes – and yielded beams cause residual drifts that can be difficult or impractical to repair after an earthquake – DuraFuse Frames have a fuse plate at each connection that protects each beam, column, and connection. The fuse plates are located at the bottom flange level, and can be unbolted to unlock residual drifts – all while taking advantage of simplified fabrication and erection, fewer bracing requirements and less connection material than other moment frame options. The team at DuraFuse Frames, LLC performs connection design and provides support during fabrication and erection.
