Low Maintenance / Low Costs

Our high-quality PVC cladding materials and post-production galvanized welded steel frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb sports buildings more economical compared to conventional sports hall structures.

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

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

Multiple Use

Rubb indoor sports facilities can function as one large playing area or be sub-divided into smaller areas for younger age groups or training programs. Sport surfaces can be divided using moveable rebound walls, nets or more permanent dividers.

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb sports buildings can be quickly erected, dismantled and relocated due to module pre-fabrication. Rubb can provide site supervisors or fully dedicated construction teams to complete any custom sports project.

Flexible and Cost-Efficient Foundation Systems

Rubb sports buildings can accommodate many foundation options such as concrete up-stand, ballast weights, and ground anchors into an existing surface. Rubb’s co-ordination with the groundwork contractor is key for the client to reach the most cost effective solution.
