Complete solution for designing structural connections

Easily design, calculate and analyze multiple connection types, including anchoring to concrete, masonry, post-installed rebar, concrete overlay and handrail designs

Stay up to date with the latest international codes and approvals automatically

Save hours of research time as the software automatically updates to the latest versions of international codes and approvals, including: ACI, CSA, Eurocode, Australian Standards and many others

Free version available for everyday structural connections

PROFIS Engineering Standard gives you free access to all the application modules and allows you to generate detailed, step-by-step calculation and design reports (including baseplate rigidity check) for post-installed or cast-in-place anchors

Import from structural analysis software and export to BIM and CAD

With PROFIS Engineering Premium, import loads from Excel or directly from other structural analysis software programs (e.g. RISAConnection, RAM Structural System, STAAD.Pro, SAP2000, ETABS, Robot, Revit, and Dlubal RFEM and RSTAB) and export your final designs in 2D and 3D to integrate them into your standard BIM and CAD programs

Improve productivity with advanced anchor and baseplate design features

With PROFIS Engineering Premium, use CBFEM (Component-based Finite Element Method) to design your full baseplate connection, including calculations for anchors, stiffeners, welds, profiles and concrete

Streamline your design of post-installed rebar connections and overlays

Easily calculate t-joints, lap splices and shear dowel loads in just a few clicks, and use the concrete-to-concrete module for efficient designs compliant with common design methods (Eurocode 2, TR069, ACI and many others)

PROFIS Engineering Suite

An all-in-one solution for connection and fastening design

PROFIS Engineering Suite is user-friendly, cloud-based software that makes designing and analyzing structural connections faster and easier than ever.

Not just for anchors, PROFIS designs, calculates and analyses multiple fixings, including steel to concrete, concrete to concrete, and steel to masonry as well as entire handrail and baseplate solutions that are more reliable, more cost-effective and code-compliant. The software also comes with application-specific engineering training that enables you to unlock the full potential of PROFIS.

Choose the version and license model that best suits your needs

The Standard version is always free – or try the fully featured Premium version for free for 30 days. After this trial, you can automatically continue to the free Standard version or purchase a Premium license.


Enable compliance

Get peace of mind knowing that your design will automatically meet local codes and approvals. As a leading manufacturer of anchors, interpreting codes and putting them to work is our key ambition. 

Improve accuracy

Manual input errors mean costly rework. Get it right the first time by importing load cases from structural analysis software, processing multiple loads simultaneously and building accurate BIM/CAD models.

Save time

Use templates to design connections in minutes. Don't waste time researching – let PROFIS spec the anchors instead. And speed up communication by granting your entire team access to the most recent file in the cloud.

Learn efficiently

Whether you are an experienced or a graduate engineer, our technical training – covering application basics and advanced modules – enable you to do fast, compliant designs.

Anchoring to Concrete

Design complex and day-to-day structural baseplate connections

Use preset templates to design concrete fixings including post-installed and cast-in-place anchors, baseplates, welds and stiffeners quickly and accurately. With just a click you can analyze baseplates using CBFEM and perform rigidity checks to determine whether to adapt the design or the loads. Optimize fixture points and perform stress and strain checks – PROFIS considers applied loads such as seismic and fatigue and can find economical solutions for avoiding breakout using supplementary reinforcement. Smart baseplate design further simplifies your design process.

Concrete to Concrete: PIR

Everything you need to design post-installed rebar applications

Add or extend concrete elements whether you're working with existing rebar or missing starter bars. Solve concrete structural joints and splices, and then verify the shear resistance at the interface between the old and new concrete.

Need to adapt the layout or geometry of your PIR design? PROFIS lets you easily customize the diameter, embedment depth and spacing parameters for existing concrete as well as post-installed.

Concrete to concrete: Overlay

Design for concrete overlay and post-installed shear dowels

With PROFIS you can dimension post-installed shear connectors and verify the interface between the concrete cast at different times. Establish whether your design has edges or is symmetric, and then define different areas of acting shear. You'll know your designs are sound thanks to intuitive 3D graphics that show how stresses vary throughout the connection.

Ready for installation? PROFIS has already saved you time by optimizing the layout.

Anchoring to masonry

Design masonry fixings more productively and accurately

PROFIS Engineering Suite can help you design accurate baseplate connections using masonry-approved anchors. Save time with intuitive built-in templates that combine your on-site data with factors such as allowable tension and shear loads while considering load reductions and geometry requirements.

Select from multiple sizes and types of brick or concrete masonry units, adjust their layout and define whether grout is present. You can even create your own templates to reduce design time on similar projects.

Handrail Fixings

Design complete connections for platforms, balconies and staircases

PROFIS doesn't consider just codes and regulations when designing handrail connections – it determines the loads acting on the handrail depending on how it's being used, wind conditions and more. It then performs a stability check.

Within minutes you'll create complete designs for welds based on thickness, weld type and material. And to reduce steel costs, PROFIS can suggest where to incorporate plastic into the design to allow for thinner rail and post profiles that still satisfy regulations.
