Rubb port warehouses offer bulk storage solutions

Port structures can be custom designed to meet a variety of bulk handling methods. Relocating and extending these modular fabric buildings is easy and cost effective in a busy ever changing port environment.

Rubb harbour structures provide large, clearspan internal spaces that are illuminated by natural light through Rubb’s translucent roofing systems. This allows a brighter, safer, more efficient working environment than conventional port structures.

Rubb port buildings are ideal for warehousing a variety of goods including sensitive materials. Rubb climate-controlled harbour storage buildings facilitate dehumidification systems and bulk storage structures protect your valuable materials from strenuous marine environment conditions.


Low Maintenance / Low Costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb aircraft hangars more economical compared to conventional aviation buildings.

Flexible and Cost-Efficient Foundation Systems

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

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb aircraft hangars 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 aviation project. Aircraft hangars are transportable by land, sea and air.

Multiple Hangar Door Options

Rubb offers a variety of different hangar door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit many size and opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our aviation clients get the best option for their selected aviation building type, depending on their operational needs.

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

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

Comprehensive Long-Term Service

Rubb personnel are on hand to provide help and support, from initial contact to quotation, installation and beyond. Rubb’s commitment to customer service continues after hangar project completion and forms the basis for long-term customer satisfaction.

Customisable Features

Aviation buildings can accommodate all types of door, ventilation and other systems and safely support high loads imposed by overhead cranes, ceiling-mounted HVAC and fire-suppression systems, fall-protection equipment and other superimposed loads.

Reduced Time On-Site

Our established supply chain streamlines coordination of delivery and installation. Pre-fabricated elements and the ability to construct our hangars in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the construction process.
