Emergency Relief Shelters

Rubb emergency shelters and disaster relief buildings can be easily transported and rapidly erected for worldwide emergency situations.

Shelters and tents for emergency and disaster relief services

These disaster shelters can be constructed using local labour with basic tools and minimal lifting gear. Foundation requirements are simple allowing installation on a wide range of surfaces.

Rubb portable emergency tents can be erected in just a few hours. They can also be dismantled, stored and re-deployed to meet later emergency requirements at other locations. Rubb's larger softskin prefabricated structures can be used for emergency accommodation, storage of goods and equipment and protection of aircraft and land transport vehicles against extreme weather conditions.

Rubb emergency shelters can be packed into shipping containers and are fully air transportable for field missions worldwide.


Rubb emergency shelters fit in ISO containers and are suitable for air transport.
