Emergency Relief Shelters

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

Rapid Response Structures

Rubb emergency shelters can be quickly erected by local labor with simple tools and minimal lifting gear. Foundation requirements are flexible allowing for installation on a wide range of surfaces. With proper manpower, a Rubb emergency shelter can be erected in a few hours and then can be re-deployed to meet later emergencies at other locations. Rubb’s temporary emergency relief shelters are fully air transportable.

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.
  • 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
