Temporary Construction Tents & Shelters

Rubb provides temporary fabric shelters and semi-permanent construction shelters, tents and covers to the construction industry to protect ongoing building projects from the elements and external weather conditions.

Get your materials under cover quickly

Rubb can get your personnel and construction materials under cover quickly and economically, allowing work to progress at a faster pace to meet project deadlines and ensuring higher product quality.

Rubb's tough and durable temporary construction shelters allow relocation and reuse at many different construction sites as clients' needs change. Rubb construction shelters or moveable shelters provide cost effective solutions when compared to traditional shelters and buildings used on construction sites.

Rubb construction tents and construction covers can be easily moved around an existing site or quickly relocated to another site, providing fast, flexible and durable shelter solutions for construction projects of all types.

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 construction buildings and shelters more economical compared to conventional structures.

High Quality Membrane

Energy-Efficient Roof Membranes

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

Multiple Door Options

Rubb offers a variety of different warehouse and shelter door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit all small and large opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our clients get the best option for their selected Rubb construction building type, depending on their operational needs.

Rapid Construction, Installation and Relocation

Rubb construction buildings and shelters 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 project.

Flexible and Cost-Efficient Foundation Systems

Rubb construction 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.
