RDS Shelters

This particular Rubb shelter type has been designed for rapid deployment and erection using a minimum workforce and without the aid of mechanical handling equipment.


Rubb Rapid Deployment Shelters can be easily connected together using access links. These can be incorporated into the gable ends and the sidewalls of the relocatable military shelter (EFASS).


The shelter framework is manufactured from steel box sections, which are hot dipped galvanized for corrosion protection. The covering membrane is fabricated from high tenacity PVC polyester fabric which is flame retardant.


These military shelters feature either single or double lined PVC covers. Double skinned rapid deployment buildings are insulated to provide extra protection in both hot and cold climates can also be provided.


Further protection to the shelter in very hot climates can be included by means of a sun screen cover. This protects the shelter from the rays of the sun so that the structure does not overheat. Windows can be provided along with blackout covers if required. A suitable vermin screen can be fitted to all doors and window openings.


Full lighting and electrical systems are available with this robust shelter. There is capability for power points to be distributed within these relocatable rapid construct shelters to meet the demands of the user. Access ports can be provided into the shelter to accommodate the ducting for any externally sited Environmental Control Units (ECU), power supplies and signal cables.
