The Blue Sky Moment Frame

l

Our moment frame is a factory fabricated, bolted, bi-directional moment frame made from cold-formed, high-tensile galvanized steel and structural steel components.

The first offering from Blue Sky was our steel moment frame.  Known as a bi-directional moment-resisting frame, it resists movement in two directions and eliminates the need for shear walls or load bearing walls.  While moment frames are not unusual ours has a number of unique attributes that make it especially beneficial for many construction projects.

Most of our moment frame elements are fabricated from light-gauge galvanized steel, which are then rapidly bolted together on site.  The result is a much faster build time, closer tolerances, more durable materials and enhanced environmental credentials.

This frame is superbly suited to projects on steep or uneven lots or those where a raised foundation and/or large open space is desired. The moment frame does not require any wall to be load bearing – a few columns provide all the structural strength.

That gives architects enormous flexibility in terms of room layouts and the placement of windows and doors.  Additionally it offers a far thinner roof profile than wood framing or heavy structural steel beams where larger open spans are required.
