What You Need

Whether you work with structural connections constantly or just once in a while, Descon is a comprehensive tool that is used with each stage of the connection design process.  30 years of user input has directly guided our development team.  That’s not going to change.  Click the “Descon 8 Features” button to see everything Descon has to offer.

When You Need It

Descon is available in a variety of packages, allowing your schedule to call the shots.  We have month-to-month plans called “Flex” that give the ability to adjust users and software levels by month.  We also offer Annual Maintenance Plans (AMP) that give access year after year while keeping your software current.  Visit our pricing page for more details.

Allowing You Time

Descon creates a report while you work, updating as you input or change any data, so you can focus on the design.  With Descon, a working clip angle shear connection to a column flange is ready in as few as 5 clicks.  That’s less than a minute.  Save time; stay accurate; use Descon.

To Do More

Beyond powerful software, Descon is a community.  Users from around the world and our developers work together in support of industry progress.  Our monthly email offers a way to share your distinct perspective and learn from others who work with structural steel connections.
