Excellence in engineering

Rubb's engineered structures are designed to specific wind, snow, and seismic loads as per your project's location. This is in strict accordance with relevant local codes and current International Building Code (IBC).

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 storage warehouses more economical compared to conventional structures.

Energy-efficient roof membranes

Translucent PVC cladding allows natural daylight to illuminate the storage space while the white roof surface reflects heat. Optional Thermohall® insulation minimises heat transfer, prevents condensation and virtually eliminates thermal bridging and air infiltration.

Multiple door options

Rubb offers a variety of different warehouse door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit all opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our clients get the best option for their selected Rubb storage warehouse type, depending on their operational needs.

Rapid construction, installation and relocation

Rubb storage buildings can be quickly erected, dismantled and relocated due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom project.

Flexible and cost-efficient foundation systems

Rubb warehouses can accommodate many foundation options, such as concrete up-stand, ballast weights, and ground anchors into an existing surface. Rubb co-ordination with the groundwork contractor is key for the client to reach the most cost effective solution.

Reduced time on-site

Our established supply chain streamlines coordination of delivery and installation. Pre-fabricated elements and the ability to construct our warehouses in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the construction process.

Proper engineering

Custom storage warehouse solutions can accommodate all types of door, ventilation and other systems and safely support high loads imposed by overhead cranes, ceiling-mounted HVAC and fire-suppression systems, fall-protection equipment and other superimposed loads.

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.

Adaptable storage solutions

Our bulk storage facilities can be readily converted or relocated to store breakbulk products allowing a much more flexible storage alternative than bulk storage silos or metal buildings. Rubb structures also accommodate differential site settlement allowing for simplified foundations. Size and shape can be custom designed to adapt to type of material stored. Rubb buildings have been used to store commodity materials such as biomass, perlite, coal, iron ore, and often serve as warehousing and salt storage buildings for municipalities in cold climates.

Rubb can provide energy saving, translucent roofs for bulk storage buildings, promoting ample natural light within the facility. Bulk storage facilities can also be provided for animal feed and other sensitive commodities. In the case of sealed bulk storage, the walls consist of a steel support structure complete with pre-stressed concrete infill panels which allow for quick and easy construction. This method provides a fully sealed facility to prevent water ingress and also allows for internal retaining walls to be built for different bulk storage needs.
