Aircraft Hangars

Rubb is a leading manufacturer of temporary and permanent fabric aircraft hangars, air cargo facilities, aircraft maintenance buildings, storage warehouses and aviation hangars.

Alternative aircraft hangar solutions

Many airports, airlines and aviation organisations are reaping the topflight benefits of Rubb specialist and custom designed aircraft hangars. Rubb Aviation has a proven track record in delivering fast, flexible and cost effective aircraft hangars to aviation and military organisations to protect their planes and helicopters.

Low maintenance and costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb aircraft hangars more economical compared to conventional aviation buildings.

Energy-efficient roof membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the hangar 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 hangar door options

Rubb offers a variety of different hangar door solutions. They can be selected and designed to suit many size and opening requirements. This flexibility ensures that our aviation clients get the best option for their selected aviation building type, depending on their operational needs.

Rapid construction, installation and relocation

Rubb aircraft hangars 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 aviation project. Aircraft hangars are transportable by land, sea and air.

Flexible and cost-efficient foundation systems

Rubb aircraft 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.

Reduced time on-site

Our established supply chain streamlines coordination of delivery and installation. Pre-fabricated elements and the ability to construct our hangars in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the construction process.

Customisable features

Aviation buildings can accommodate all types of door, ventilation and other systems and safely support high loads imposed by overhead cranes, ceiling-mounted HVAC and fire-suppression systems, fall-protection equipment and other superimposed loads.

Comprehensive long-term service

Rubb personnel are on hand to provide help and support, from initial contact to quotation, installation and beyond. Rubb’s commitment to customer service continues after hangar project completion and forms the basis for long-term customer satisfaction.
