Analysis

Due to the improvements and instant benefits available with the DuraFuse system, significant time and cost savings can be realized. In this case study, hundreds of lateral brace points are able to be eliminated.

DuraFuse: 144 lateral brace points

Other SMF: 500+ lateral brace points

Ram Structural System was used to analyze and design the DuraFuse Frames system beam and column sizes and complete drift checks.”
