SteelSmart® System (SSS) provides construction professionals with an essential tool engineered for both fast an accurate design. SSS raises the bar for light steel framing analysis and design by seamlessly integrating the well-known analytic power of its predecessors with additional functionality and accessibility.
Available as a complete suite, SteelSmart System will streamline production through the design and detailing of members, connections, and fasteners. Available design modules include: Curtain Wall, Load Bearing Wall, X-Brace Shear Wall, Floor Framing, Roof Framing, Roof Truss, and Moment-Resisting Short Wall.
Basic Software Modules
Choose from a wide-variety of common curtain wall applications, such as bypass, infill, spandrel, parapet, and opening conditions. Complete the assembly with TSN's connections and Hilti's fasteners.
Optimize load bearing stud elements in low and mid-rise structures. Select fromStandard sections or the optimal SigmaStudsection.
Shear wall design is simplified with the power of SSS 7. Newly added special seismic design requirements provide clients with multiple design options.
Choose from TSN'sPrimeJoistor Standard sections to quickly select a steel-framed floor system.
Design roof rafters and joists quickly and easily with SteelSmartSystem's Roof Module.
Select from a variety of common trusses, or create your own truss to design the members, connections, fasteners, and lateral bracing elements.
Simplify and optimize the design and construction of a short wall or half wall in residential and commercial cold formed steel framing.
Advanced Software Modules
The Lateral Load Generator/Distributor tool uses the dimensions and load specification for a building and calculates the total lateral wind and seismic loads according to ASCE 7 Standard “Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures”.
Plots framing layout of the wall and adds the connection design data (clip designation, number of fasteners, embedment, and screw pattern) to the typical connection detail. The drawing also includes framing members’ cross-sections and shapes. The drawing can be exported in AutoCAD;DXF format.
BIM Plugin for Revit
SteelSmart® Framer: Plugin for Revit
The SteelSmart® Framer provides engineers and contractors with a powerful tool to better design, estimate, and communicate light steel framing on projects using Autodesk® Revit® Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. Easily model every stud, track, shear walls, and connector. Export complete material take-off for better estimation and planning of your project.
Advanced Structural Analysis
Extreme Loading for Structures Software or ELS, is an advanced non-linear structural analysis software tool designed specifically for structural engineers. ELS allows structural engineers to study the 3D behavior of structures through both the continuum and discrete stages of loading.
The StiffClip® PLC (panel lift clip) assists with lifting and placing assembled wall panels with an overhead crane. Clip attaches to stud within panel with approved fasteners, extending through the top track to allow cables to be threaded through the large hole, and...read more
DriftTrak® Headed Stud saves the time and expense of installing DriftTrak after the concrete slab has been poured, by integrating it directly into the slab before pouring. The headed studs come preinstalled to the DriftTrak and function as the attachment to the slab...read more
We're happy to announce the release of SteelSmart System Version 7.5! We've made a number of great improvements including the optimization of several modules to make designing cold formed steel structures easier as well as the addition of a few new products from The...read more
