Wabo®BusTuff and Wabo®SafetyFlex were used at Detroit Airport’s McNamara Parking Garage

Unique loading requirements at Detroit Airport (DTW)’s McNamara Parking Garage meant the expertise of Watson Bowman Acme was required, which led to the development of Wabo®BusTuff in 2002.  In 2016, Wabo® expansion joints were required once more with the addition of Wabo®SafetyFlex.
