  • Does the engineering make sense?
  • What is the membrane wall and roof cladding material?
  • Have you seen the building design calculations?

Rubb Advantages

Design Criteria

The building framework will consist of structural steelwork and will be designed to meet local building codes with no exceptions

Superior Structural Frame

The backbone of a Rubb building is a well-engineered structural framing system, with the best corrosion protection system in the industry. The steel is hot dip galvanized after the welding process to provide a low maintenance building. All steel components are hot dip galvanized to ASTM A123

High-Quality Membrane

Rubb only uses high-strength, heavy-weight, coated architectural membranes from proven suppliers. Many structures are still in use 40 years after installation.

Code Compliance

Rubb buildings are designed for site specific, full code-compliance with respect to wind and snow loads.

Environmental Control

The membrane cladding of a Rubb building is sealed to provide a weather-tight shell. The buildings can be insulated, heated or air-conditioned as required. Rubb structures are uniquely suited for use as dehumidified facilities.

Suitable for Difficult Sites

The flexible membrane and steel frame design of a Rubb building allows installation on uneven or sloping sites. The buildings will also accept moderate differential settlement of the foundations.

Fire Safety Features

PVC-coated polyester membrane will not propagate flame or sustain combustion when exposed to a fire. The structure is self-venting, allowing heat and smoke to escape, a significant safety and risk management advantage

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 buildings more economical compared to conventional structures.

Reduced Time On-Site

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

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 project completion and forms the basis for long-term customer satisfaction.
