Quikjoint

Steel connection design for simple and moment connections in accordance with EN 1993-1-8 and the green books (P212, P207, P358 and P398).

The most comprehensive connections package available. Select a joint type, enter member sizes and loads. That's all you have to do! Quikjoint's connect wizard will produce a connection design to Eurocode 3 or BS5950 based on the fabricator experience stored in its unique knowledge base. Working with an automatically drawn fully dimensioned and annotated drawing, you can click any any item to change it. That's if you don't like the Wizard's design. Links to Quikframe, Quikport and CAD make Quikjoint the No. 1 connections program.
