Land, sea, air or unmanned… Rubb has got all vehicles covered at IDEX


Rubb returns to IDEX in the UAE this month to highlight a new UAV hangar from its respected military building range.








Explore the EFASS range of temporary hangars, storage warehouses, aircraft shelters and sunshades which are designed to be rapidly deployed and quickly erected anywhere in the world.



New product development




Rubb Buildings Ltd has found there is a significant demand for a smaller sized hangar with a wide door opening to allow Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in and out of the building.


The company has now introduced a new UAV storage and maintenance facility to its EFASS range of fabric structures.


The facility, designed with a lower internal volume, is easier and more cost effective to power (electrics, HVAC). It is designed to suit military loadings (100kg/m2 snow loading and 41.6m/s effective wind speed).


Other advantages of the system include:


  • Rapid building times with minimal use of machinery to aid construction
  • Fully relocatable and will fit into containers for transport and storage
  • Lightweight to aid air transportation
  • The building can easily be adapted to make it longer to store more aircraft
  • The gable end configurations can also be adapted to suit the access/ egress requirements of the aircraft storage arrangement
  • Can include an internal gantry crane if required

The 23m span x 12m long aluminium framed UAV POD is the seventh hangar to be introduced to Rubb’s Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System (EFASS) range.


Managing Director Ian Hindmoor said: “We pride ourselves on our R&D and the new UAV POD meets the requirements listed in feedback from our clients and end users. We are looking forward to showcasing this latest product from the EFASS range at IDEX 2015. We are also keen to highlight some of our recent military and aviation projects.”
