RAB Associates are very proud to be the UK distributor for the Wabo® range of products by Watson Bowman Acme. This range offers the widest possible choice for expansion control systems and responsible solutions for civil and commercial structures.
Building upon their bridge engineering expertise, and their knowledge of seismic movement, structural behavior and vehicular loading, Watson Bowman Acme are able to provide high quality, high performance expansion control systems that last for the ever-increasing performance demands of the parking structure market. Parking and Stadium structures also require the same high-performance of the architectural expansion joint with the added requirement of aesthetics, water tightness and fire protection for areas in and around luxury boxes, stair towers, and public use areas within those structures. Add to this, requirements for seismic management and sustainability of the structure, and you need the engineered expertise of Watson Bowman Acme to ensure all project requirements are met – both now and into the future. These are world-class solutions expected of a BASF company.
Representatives from both RAB and WBA will be on hand at the exhibition to discuss and demonstrate the latest in expansion joint technology.
