BLE Structure

Liftable | Moveable | Extendable | Relocatable

Rubb Buildings Ltd can provide robust and reliable fabric-covered portable and relocatable buildings.

Designed and manufactured in the north east of England, the Rubb BLE Series shares the same properties as any other Rubb structure: strong, durable, custom-designed and competitive.

BLE structures are equipped with lifting points, providing easy crane liftable connections and allowing the structure to be lifted into position to provide the required cover.

Our movable buildings range can also be designed to be mounted and run on a track system to provide a perfect solution for large-scale production lines or coverage of ships and dry docks.

The BLE series is extremely versatile and offers a wide range of options to meet a variety of challenging requirements. Please contact our team for further information and to discuss your needs.
