Firehouse Structure Types

Rubb can provide custom designed firehouses in a variety of configurations and sizes to suit your specific requirements.

Rubb BVR Structure

BVR Structure

The BVR features rectangular leg and roof box sections. This takes up less space and provides more overall internal clearance. This design is a popular choice for bulk storage buildings.

Rubb BVE Structure type

BVE Structure (Lattice Leg)

BVE structures feature lattice frame sidewalls and can be designed with single or multiple lattice roof pitches. Span widths start from 20m to 40m, by any length.

BVE Lattice

BVE Structure (Column Leg)

BVE structures feature lattice or column frame sidewalls and can be designed with single or multiple lattice roof pitches. Span widths start from 20m to 40m, by any length.

Rubb NV Structure

NV Structure

The NV was the first steel truss span building by Rubb. The design originated in Norway and has a vertical sidewall. The high arch of the roof makes this profile ideal for bulk storage.
