Extremely Low Lifetime Maintenance Costs

High-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb aircraft hangars more economical compared to conventional aviation hangars.

Building Heating

Bright, Efficient and Safe Working Environment

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the hangar workspace while the white roof surface reflects heat. Optional Thermohall® insulation minimizes heat transfer, prevents condensation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging and air infiltration.

Multiple Hangar Door Options

Rubb offers multiple hangar door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit many opening requirements. This ensures that our aviation clients get the best option for their aviation building type, depending on operational needs.

Fast, Efficient Construction Times

Rubb aircraft hangars can be constructed, dismantled and relocated due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or dedicated construction teams to complete any aviation project. Aircraft hangars are transportable by land, sea and air.

Fire Safety Advantages

Rubb aviation buildings offer significant fire safety advantages over other building types, including a lower risk of combustion, flashover and structural failure even in severe fire events. The PVC coated membrane will not propagate flame or sustain combustion when exposed to a fire. The Rubb structure is self-venting , allowing heat and smoke to escape.
