Low Maintenance / Low Costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining a Rubb energy support facility more economical compared to conventional structures.

High Quality Membrane

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

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

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb energy industry support warehouses can rapidly designed, manufactured and constructed due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom project.
