Rapid project deployment for Eurotunnel

The Channel Tunnel Group needed a sunshade car port facility to form part of its infrastructure development at UK Terminal, Folkestone.


Rubb designed, manufactured and constructed a 20.4m wide x 16m long sunshade, featuring an aluminium framework, which is clad with a durable, white PVC coated tensile fabric, terminated at eaves level.

The project was completed in a very short timeframe. Rubb was able to utilise the strengths of the EFASS deployable range of fabric structures to complete the project within four weeks, from enquiry to installation.

Grant Davidson, Business Development (EFASS Sales) said: “Our deployable range and quick turnaround provided the flexibility that Eurotunnel required.”

Groupe Eurotunnel SE manages and operates the Channel Tunnel between Britain and France. The new facility will be used as a vehicle checkpoint by the organisation.
