Rubb provides a well-engineered steel or aluminium frame and a PVC coated polyester fabric cover which is tensioned over the frame to provide a tight fitting shell. Variations include provisions for alternative materials, such as steel cladding.


Rubb structures are available in single spans of 3 metres (10ft) to more than 79 metres (260ft) by any length. Standard module lengths vary from 3m (10ft) to 5m (16ft). Multi-span options are also available to cater for even bigger facilities.


Rubb has earned a reputation for tackling difficult and unique projects. We have developed substantial structures that can be moved on wheels or rails or even lifted around a project site in fully erected form. We offer a strong commitment to code and standards compliance. Our customers’ needs are paramount from quotation to installation, project completion and beyond.
