Emergency relief shelters

Rubb emergency shelters and disaster relief buildings can be easily transported and rapidly erected for worldwide emergency situations.

Rubb emergency relief structure advantages

  • Readily transported: shelters pack to less than 1% of their erected volume, efficiently fit in ISO containers and are also suitable for air transport
  • Durable heavier weight, PVC coated fabric is fire safe and UV resistant. Post production hot dip galvanizing of welded components ensures long structure life
  • Rubb uses the same quality of materials for shelters as we do for our large clear span structures
  • Easily installed: relief shelters are readily erected with simple tools and equipment. Components are color coded for ease of identification. Maximum parts interchangeability and detailed instruction manuals simplify installation
  • Light weight alternatives: Aluminum frame versions of the THAB and RDS range of emergency shelters are ideal for air freight
  • High inclined sidewalls and rectangular footprint provide more usable volume per unit floor area
  • Assemble anywhere
