The Rubb Difference. What makes Rubb stand out as the number one provider of fabric buildings?
Superior Structural Frame
The backbone of a Rubb building is a well-engineered structural framing system, with the best corrosion protection system in the industry. The steel is hot dip galvanized after the welding process to provide a low maintenance building. All steel components are hot dip galvanized to ASTM A123
The membrane cladding of a Rubb building is sealed to provide a weather-tight shell. The buildings can be insulated, heated or air-conditioned as required. Rubb structures are uniquely suited for use as dehumidified facilities.
Suitable for Difficult Sites
The flexible membrane and steel frame design of a Rubb building allows installation on uneven or sloping sites. The buildings will also accept moderate differential settlement of the foundations.
Fire Safety Features
PVC-coated polyester membrane will not propagate flame or sustain combustion when exposed to a fire. The structure is self-venting, allowing heat and smoke to escape, a significant safety and risk management advantage
Low Maintenance / Low Costs
Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb buildings more economical compared to conventional structures.
Reduced Time On-Site
Our established supply chain streamlines coordination of delivery and installation. Pre-fabricated elements and the ability to construct our buildings in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the construction process.
Comprehensive Long-Term Service
Rubb personnel are on hand to provide help and support, from initial contact to quotation, installation and beyond. Rubb’s commitment to customer service continues after project completion and forms the basis for long-term customer satisfaction.
