Rubb is a trusted leading provider of high quality fabric buildings worldwide. Our goal is to deliver the best building solutions to our customers. We value excellence in engineering and this ethos is echoed in our activities around the world.
Rapid speed of erection and low life cycle costs are attractive features of our fabric airplane hangars. Also the ability to relocate the aircraft hangar, terminal or air cargo facility anywhere in the world is an advantage. With the added benefits of a very bright interior in both day and night working conditions, our aircraft structures provide a convenient working space suitable for many aviation applications.
The hot dipped galvanized structural frame and exterior cladding system minimizes lifetime maintenance costs. The fire safety performance characteristics of the PVC membrane allows for flexibility in optimizing fire suppression systems, providing greater protection for any airplane hangar.
Rubb’s Thermohall® insulation system can be used to clad large scale multi-span aircraft hangars. The fabric provides many benefits to help promote energy efficiency. Thermohall® insulated fabric cladding consists of a durable external PVC layer and a self cleaning internal PVC layer, which encapsulate a series of air tight PVC ‘pockets’, each featuring a non-combustible glass wool insulation core. The insulated panel system provides a full vapour seal, which minimises thermal bridging and reduces infiltration losses. This reduces condensation on framing members, improving insulation efficiency.
Our military aircraft hangars are used by multiple military organizations in challenging environments around the world, while major commercial airlines use our buildings for repair, maintenance, and storage at airports across the globe.
