CoreBrace is honored to have been chosen as the BRB supplier for the Salt Lake City Airport project in Salt Lake City, Utah. We extend our congratulations to the entire design team on creating a successful project to transport and serve the public for many years to come.More
CoreBrace is honored to have been chosen as the BRB supplier for the Louis Armstrong Stadium at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City, one of the venues of the US Open. We extend our congratulations to the entire design team on creating a successful project to serve the United States Tennis Association and fans for many years to come.More
The home of the MSL’s San Jose Earthquakes, designed and built to be a technologically innovative stadium, uses CoreBrace’s welded connected BRBs.More
We are excited to introduce our newest development: the CoreBrace reCOREder is the next step in achieving smart, resilient structures with Buckling Restrained Braces (BRBs). The data stored in the device, along with the results from our BRB Fatigue testing program, provides a reliable means to determine the remaining capacity of BRBs after an earthquake or other significant event.More
CoreBrace’s patented strain control technologies continue to evolve as we push the boundaries of BRB innovation. Recent testing of perforated core plates and all steel BRBs are only a couple examples of the many advancements being made. We look forward to working with you and your team to find the best solution for your projects.More
Bolted Lugs are an industry preferred connection that install quickly and efficiently every time.
Pinned connections offer a structurally sound solution with an elegant architectural flare.
Here at CoreBrace we design and fabricate Buckling Restrained Braces (BRBs). In fact, that is all we do! We are dedicated to being the best in the business and our braces are manufactured in the USA. CoreBrace BRBs are engineered to have essentially the same capacity in tension and compression, resulting in less overstrength built into the structure. Additionally, they can be used in single diagonal configurations without design penalties.
FEWER braces and connections
SMALLER frame columns and beams
SMALLER connections to the structure and foundations
CoreBrace Buckling Restrained Braces are structural elements composed of a steel core encased in a grout-filled steel tube. The casing and grout assembly confines the core, increasing its critical load to a point that the axial capacity in compression is limited only by the yield stress of the steel. The concept allows the core to resist the design axial forces utilizing the full steel strength while the casing provides overall buckling stability of the BRB. A proprietary interface material is used to separate the two resisting systems, with minimized friction. The result is a high performance brace that does not buckle.
Give us a call, we look forward to the opportunity to discuss the performance benefits and cost savings that CoreBrace can bring to your project with our buckling restrained braces.
