In the spotlight at international defence show

Staff flew into Brunei to showcase Rubb Buildings’ relocatable helicopter and fixed wing aircraft ‘Super Tent’ system at BRIDEX.

Rubb promoted the Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System (EFASS) at the Brunei Darussalam International Defence Exhibition, Jerudong, Brunei, from July 6th to July 9th, 2011. The EFASS shelter system, which features hangars, sunshades and warehouses, is uniquely suitable for the military services, designed to be rapidly deployed and erected anywhere in the world.

Sales Manager Ian Hindmoor said: “Our EFASS range of super tents really pushes the boundaries and is in a league of its own when it comes to the rapid deployment of robust and reliable shelters, hangars, warehouses and sunshades. It provides protection to personnel and vital equipment in the most challenging of environments. It also offers some unique qualities including state-of-the-art door options and crane technology. “This was our first visit to BRIDEX and we were honoured to meet the Sultan of Brunei and other dignitaries from the region. We also met with representatives from the Kuwait Airforce.” It was a return to the area for Rubb which supplied the Sultan with an aircraft hangar in the mid 1980s. The building still serves as a government sports complex.

EFASS structures are available in three spans: 11.1m (36ft), 20.4m (67ft), 25m (82ft) and pack into 20ft ISO containers ready for transport by sea or air. With unmatched engineered fabric structures currently in action across the globe, Rubb has the ideal solution to military and defence application requirements.
