Tired of the delays in securing building permits?
FCP continues to distinguish itself as the leader of steel structure technology with ConnectRite™—our new seismic force-resisting moment connection. A key feature of FCP Free-Space Mezzanines™, ConnectRite™ is the first moment-resistant, bi-directional rigid frame to be approved by the American Module Iron and Steel Institute (AISI). Excelling in areas with stringent seismic requirements, ConnectRite™ is now a recognized standard of AISI (AISI S-110), the International Building Code (IBC), the California Building Code (CBC) and the American Society of Professional Engineering (ASPE).
ConnectRite™ underwent rigorous testing by the esteemed Department of Structural Engineering at UCSD, surpassing expectations and creating a benchmark for joining cold-formed steel elements in a bolted—rather than welded—moment frame. A decade in the making, ConnectRite™ allows you to take advantage of light-gauge steel that’s more cost-effective and environmentally friendly than structural steel.
With a high degree of ductility and our renowned durability, your FCP structure is more than a smart investment—it’s a step forward in the exciting revolution of structural engineering.
