Rubb’s insulated fabric buildings feature an innovative, flexible, insulated fabric cladding system, which provides many eco-friendly benefits in an increasingly energy conscious world.

Insulated Fabric Buildings

Rubb’s Thermohall® insulated fabric solution can be used to clad many Rubb structure types, from small standard shelters up to large scale, multi-span aircraft hangars. The fabric provides many benefits to help promote energy efficiency.

Our flexible, insulated Thermohall® fabric has been used across a wide variety of sectors and applications, including MRO aircraft hangars, multi sport indoor playing facilities and standard storage warehouses to create climate controlled environments.

Alternative solution

Rubb Thermohall® insulated warehouses offer an alternative solution to conventional buildings while providing high thermal insulation along with full relocatability. All Thermohall® buildings can be delivered to suit all customers’ insulation requirements.

Insulation and heating

The depth of insulated cladding ranges from 50mm to 200mm, which provides a range of U Values to suit your requirements. Rubb can also supply various heat sources within the structure such as oil or gas fired hot air units, radiant heating, heat pump or electric fan heaters.


Thermohall® features high density non-combustible glass wool insulation encapsulated within a heavy duty PVC fabric, which is designed and manufactured in-house to suit site-specific project requirements. All materials are of the highest quality and meet regulations.

Fire safety performance

Rubb buildings offer significant fire safety advantages over other building types, including lower risk of combustion, flashover and structural failure, even in severe fires. The fabric will not propagate flame or sustain combustion when exposed to a severe fire.


Thermohall® has excellent drainage properties, is water repellent and does not absorb moisture or odours. It helps eliminate condensation. We deliver our Thermohall® clad structures with simple or sophisticated ventilation systems to provide a comfortable working environment.


Technical regulations and guidelines set standards for sound insulation. Our patented insulated fabric cladding system satisfies the requirements for sound passage, which is essential for our customers who are located in industrial areas or near roads or airports.


The insulation consists mainly of recycled glass. Thermohall® cladding can provide many environmental benefits, including reduced energy use and helping support a stable indoor temperature all year round. Rubb structures are also fully reusable across the sectors we serve.


All materials used to create a Rubb building can be recycled if necessary. No materials from Rubb structures are considered to create any toxic or hazardous waste. Steel can be recycled through various means and PVC can be recycled through Texyloop.

Adaptable structures

Rubb Thermohall® structures offer flexibility and full relocatability. Adapting, extending and moving these modular insulated buildings is easy and cost effective in a busy, ever changing business environment.

    Thermohall® Technical Specification

    Development of Thermohall® started several years ago, with the aim of providing a new and eco-friendly insulated cladding system. Thermohall® is now fully developed and patented. Thermohall® offers great energy savings and is environmentally friendly, both in fabrication and operation. Some competing insulation options don't provide the benefits that Rubb can offer. Alternative insulated cladding products feature PVC sheets with an air gap in between, which gives poor thermal performance while being prone to condensation problems. Meanwhile other systems use rigid panels which don't allow for relocation of the building.

    Climate Controlled Structures

    Rubb's Thermohall® is a unique insulated fabric system which offers many advantages over other insulating systems:


    • Non-combustible glass wool insulation encapsulated in air and water tight pockets.

    • Insulation thickness from 50mm to 200mm.

    • No thermal bridges in the cladding.

    • No air gaps in the cladding, which reduces heat loss and helps eliminate condensation.




    • The system leaves the structural frame exposed internally, allowing for efficient installation and service of equipment

    • Roof and interior surfaces provided in high gloss white to reduce solar load on the outside and increase reflectance within the structure

    • Vacuum packaging reduces shipment volumes



    Thermohall® Projects

    With more than 40 years experience of designing, manufacturing and constructing fabric structures to suit all markets, we have developed a new insulated cladding system to enhance and promote energy efficiency.

    Thermohall® Structure Types

    Rubb can provide custom designed Thermohall® structures in a variety of configurations and sizes to suit your specific requirements.

    Rubb Hall Shelter

    Rubb Hall

    The Rubb Hall range is flexible, robust, portable, and is designed specifically for fast delivery at a competitive price. Available in 10m and 12m spans by any length.

    Rubb BVR Structure


    The BVR features rectangular leg and roof box sections. This takes up less space and provides more overall internal clearance. Popular choice for bulk storage buildings.

    Rubb BVE Structure type


    BVE structures feature lattice frame sidewalls and can be designed with single or multiple lattice roof pitches. Span widths start from 20m to 40m, by any length.

    Rubb BVC Structure Type


    The BVC is designed with a vertical column leg and a lattice frame roof. This structure type offers a large clear internal area. 40m to 100m width spans are available.

    Rubb BVL Structure Type


    The BVL has vertical lattice frame sidewalls and single or multiple lattice roof pitches per span. Large spans start from 40m to 100m in width, by any length.

    Rubb BLE liftable Structure


    The Rubb BLE is a robust and reliable engineered structure type, designed to be liftable, moveable, extendable and relocatable to meet all clients’ needs.

    Rubb NV Structure


    The NV was the first steel truss span building by Rubb. The design originated in Norway and has a vertical sidewall. The high arch of the roof makes this profile ideal for bulk storage.

    Rubb EFASS hangar


    The EFASS hangar is designed for rapid deployment. Lightweight, robust and relocatable, these hangars are available in three widths (11m, 20.4m and 25m).
