EBS recently unveiled the first-of-its-kind buckling-restrained braces, or BRBs, innovation in the entire Middle East, which not only revolutionises the safety and resistance of buildings against any possible earthquake risks and because of their characteristic of resisting equal tension and compression loads, decrease the earthquake load coefficients resulting in better performance and more economy on all the members that resist the earthquake loads.
