Rubb Difference

STEEL

 

Rubb generally uses more steel in its structures than our competitors.

 

  • Steel is stronger, more durable than aluminum (metal clad buildings).
  • Steel less costly than aluminum.
  • Our Steel is “hot dip galvanized” for longevity and superior corrosion protection.

 

 

CORROSION PROTECTION

 

Hot dip galvanized steel provides consistent zinc finish on exposed AND inside surfaces. It’s the best.

 

  • Be wary of paint/pre-galvanization.
  • Because of this our buildings last… it’s expensive but worth it.

 

 

MEMBRANE/FABRIC QUALITY

 

Rubb uses a high quality heavy PVC coated polyester material specially fabricated to provide exceptional longevity and wear and tear.

 

  • Be wary of polyethylene and polyolefin based membranes.
  • Rubb membranes are meant to protect contents from weather, not provide structural support.

 

 

CODE COMPLIANCE

 

Rubb uses a high quality heavy PVC coated polyester material specially fabricated to provide exceptional longevity and wear and tear.

 

  • Building range products designed strictly to building code requirements.
  • Minimum roof live load is 12 psf per ASCE 7-05 plus customer specified collateral load.
  • Ground snow load capability per code specification up to 100 psf or greater.
  • Wind load capacity up to 140 mph 3 second gust or greater.
  • Rubb structural framework is structurally independent of the membrane cladding and does not rely on the cladding to brace framing members.
  • Experienced, qualified and responsible in-house design and engineering capability.
  • Rubb chief engineer – PE w/25+ years experience at Rubb and MS in structural engineering.

 

 

LIFE CYCLE COST/MAINTENANCE

 

Rubb uses a high quality heavy PVC coated polyester material specially fabricated to provide exceptional longevity and wear and tear.

 

  • Rubb buildings have low maintenance costs over time; no corrosion and repairs are inexpensive. We will gladly provide documentation.

 

 

FUNCTIONALITY

 

Superior to our competition, Rubb buildings easily integrate with ventilation systems, windows and conventional doors.

 

  • Large open clear span, no center columns.
  • Translucent roof allowing natural light thus saving energy.
  • Continuous wall and roof thus no water or air infiltration.
  • Relocatable or permanent.
  • Flexible foundation design options.
