Expansion joints are a critical link to the sustainability of a bridge structure. The effects of failing expansion joints or improper system selection will severely weaken the structural integrity of a bridge. Watson Bowman Acme continues to improve and enhance the performance, preservation and installation of bridge expansion joints.
WBA has a strong track record in supplying best-in-class products and services to satisfy unique demands of Infrastructure Design-Build projects. Utilising knowledge gained as a leader in expansion control system research and testing, WBA and RAB can design project-specific solutions to fit virtually any design requirements.
WBA and RAB offer the design and construction community a broad portfolio of options and custom solutions that will meet your project’s form, fit and functional requirements. Creative hallmarks such as aesthetics, performance, durability and life safety are engineered into each Wabo® branded system.
Watson Bowman Acme’s parking structure systems do more than just allow for the necessary movement between rigid elements. They also protect the entire structure, ensuring sustainability, all while meeting the functional demands and aesthetic appeal of the most challenging projects.
From custom designs, to full systems specifically created for stadium and arena structures, a full staff of engineers, designers, highly-skilled manufacturers, and field service technicians bring you results with minimal costs and time requirements.
Wabo®Crete Membrane Gen II is a durable watertight expansion control system that can accommodate unforeseen outward structural movements (ie: seismic, shrinkage, creep or other unknown movements) beyond its relaxed width without sacrificing performance and water tightness.
Wabo®SafetyGuard is a dual purpose, quiet riding expansion joint and traffic calming system. It combines expansion joint technology, speed deterrence and sound attenuation into one unique product. The system is load rated to resist vehicular traffic loads and impact forces at slow speeds within parking structures and stadium concourses, and its raised cross section provides a visual warning to motorists to reduce speed.
Wabo®FS Bridge Seal is a foam-supported silicone joint seal for bridges made of monolithic foam construction. The pre-compressed design allows for ease of installation and the flexibility to handle variations in joint size.
Wabo®FireShield is a second generation unified fire rated, sound, energy and waterproof sealant system. This fire-retardant impregnated foam does not rely on the silicone face or an intumescent coating to provide its fire rating.
The Wabo®SeismicSafetyFlex system is an elastomeric molded cover plate system recommended for wider joint openings exposed to heavy loading or when design considerations call for the ability to accommodate multi-directional seismic movement.
The Wabo®SPS expansion joint system is a preformed silicone joint sealing system designed to accommodate movements and varying joint widths on bridges and other civil structures requiring watertightness of expansion joints.
The Wabo®BusTuff system is a rugged and reliable expansion joint system specifically designed to accommodate high load, high speed and high daily traffic count parking deck challenges. This system has been tested and designed to withstand the most demanding seismic events making it the most fully functional, robust expansion joint system for parking structures.
