PACO Steel and Engineering Corp. has developed a state-of-the-art, pre-engineered, pre-fabricated and cost-effective
Special Moment Frame to resist both lateral and gravity loads. Special Moment Frames allow the architect to design
large clear openings and provides the Engineer of Record a frame capable of maintaining structural integrity.
Using PACO Steel’s lightweight sections, for the SMF, the installation is fast, performed by the standard framing crew
(no welders), fits into standard 2×4 or 2×6 wood walls and is less expensive than site-built wide flange moment frames.
PACO Moment Frames are compatible with wood, LGS or heavy structural framing systems.
PACO will provide the EOR, calculations, submittal documents and detail drawings for the moment frames and their
attachments to the foundation. This will reduce design time for the engineer and provide a cost-effective solution
for large clear span openings.
