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.

High Quality Membrane

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.

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.
