The Rubb Group’s ability to deliver from concept to reality was proven once again by RUBB USA with this high wall, track rolled structure.
Rubb’s design and fabrication specialists worked with the experts at the Wallops Island Flight Facility to engineer, manufacture and install a facility to meet project specifications.
The need was to cost-effectively provide a 50′ (15.2m) high wall structure that could provide severe weather protection shelter to support the Wallop facility’s MLAS (Max Launch Abort System) program.
Rubb’s solution was a movable BVE range structure. The building measures 50′ (15.2m) wide by 50′ (15.2m) in length with a custom engineered vertically folding fabric door system which provides a 35′ (10.7m) wide by 45′ (13.7m) high opening.
Of high importance was the need to be able to move the 25 ton structure (using Hillman Rollers) safely away from the launch pad to a mission ready position 200’ (61m) away in the required time (less than 30 minutes).
