Low maintenance and costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized framework deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb port storage and logistical harbour buildings more economical compared to conventional structures.

Energy-efficient roof membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the port storage building and 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 door options

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

Rapid construction, installation, and relocation

Rubb port warehouses 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 project.

Flexible and cost-efficient foundation systems

Rubb port warehouses 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 buildings in a variety of weather conditions speeds up the port warehouse construction process.

Customisable features

Port 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 project completion and forms the basis for long-term customer satisfaction.
