Thermohall®

Rubb's Thermohall® is the world’s only flexible insulated fabric system which offers major advantages over other insulating systems.

Climate Controlled Structures

Rubb’s patented Thermohall® is the best and most eco-friendly of insulated storage buildings on the market today, perfect for any climate controlled storage facilities.

Rubb’s unique Thermohall® fabric can be used to clad all Rubb structure types, from small standard shelters up to large scale multi-span aircraft hangars. Our flexible insulated Thermohall® fabric has been used across a wide variety of sectors and applications including aircraft hangars, multi sport indoor playing facilities and standard storage warehouses.

Heating/Insulation

Rubb Thermohall® buildings offer flexible insulation R-Values depending on the needs of the customer. Thermohall® R values ranges from R-11(2”) up to R-35(8”). Full HVAC/heating and dehumidification systems are adaptable to Rubb structures.

Moisture/Condensation

Thermohall® has minimal or no thermal bridging, thereby eliminating or greatly reducing condensation and enhancing thermal efficiency. Thermohall® is water repellent and absorbs neither moisture nor odors.

Fire / Soundproofing

Technical regulations and guidelines set standards for both sound and fire insulation. Our patented insulated fabric cladding system satisfies the requirements for sound passage reduction, which is essential for our customers who are located in industrial areas or near roads or airports. In addition to the fabric’s unique strength, it is long lasting, and low (if any) maintenance is required throughout the life of the building.

Maintenance

Any damage to PVC cladding or Thermohall can be repaired easily and inexpensively. Rubb has a responsive Service Department for any maintenance repairs or for preventative maintenance. The Rubb 20/20 is our highly effective and affordable 20 year service warranty.

Quality

Thermohall® is a heavy duty PVC fabric with a long life (20+ years). The insulation features high density non-combustible glass wool insulation encapsulated within a heavy duty PVC fabric, which is designed and manufactured in-house to suit site specific project requirements. All materials are of the highest quality.

Recyclable/Environment

All materials used in Rubb structures can be relocated and often reused. No materials from Rubb structures are considered to create any toxic or hazardous waste. Steel can be recycled through various means and PVC can be recycled through Texyloop, which is the Serge Ferrari operational recycling chain. Rubb strives to reduce its carbon footprint whenever possible.

Thermohall® Technical Specification

Development of Thermohall® started several years ago, with the aim of providing a new and eco-friendly insulated cladding system. Thermohall® is now fully developed and patented and is one of our most popular product lines. Thermohall® offers great energy savings and is environmentally friendly, both in fabrication and operation. Competitors offer alternative insulated cladding products featuring fabric sheets with an air gap in between, which gives poor thermal performance while being prone to condensation problems. Meanwhile other systems use rigid panels which don't allow for relocation of the building and are prone to air gaps, therefore less efficient.

Thickness U Value (SI) W/m2K R Value (US) ft-F-hr/BTU
50mm (2in) 0.67 W/m2K R11
100mm (4in) 0.36 W/m2K R19
150mm (6in) 0.25 W/m2K R27
200mm (8in) 0.19 W/m2K R35

Climate Controlled Structures

Thermohall® cladding consists of a high-strength PVC layer and non-combustible glass wool insulation core inside an air-tight pocket and a self-cleaning PVC inner layer. The insulated panel system provides a full vapour seal, which minimizes thermal bridging and reduces infiltration losses. This reduces condensation on framing members, improving insulation efficiency. The environmentally controlled facility facilitates air conditioning and internal heating.

Rubb's Thermohall® is a unique insulated fabric system which offers many advantages over other insulating systems:

 

• Non-combustible glass wool insulation encapsulated in air and water tight pockets.

• Insulation thickness from 50mm to 200mm.

• No thermal bridges in the cladding.

• No air gaps in the cladding, which reduces heat loss and helps eliminate condensation.

 

• The system leaves the structural frame exposed internally, allowing for efficient installation and service of equipment

• Roof and interior surfaces provided in high gloss white to reduce solar load on the outside and increase reflectance within the structure

• Vacuum packaging reduces shipment volumes
