Rubb Military Buildings assemble for return to IDEX

Rubb Buildings Ltd is an innovating world leader when it comes to the design, manufacture and delivery of relocatable helicopter, fixed wing aircraft and military storage ‘super hangar’ systems.

Rubb will be promoting its Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System (EFASS) at Stand C6-002, at IDEX at ADNEC, Abu Dhabi, UAE, from February 17th-21st 2013.

The EFASS shelter system, which features hangars, sunshades and warehouses, is uniquely suitable for the military services, designed to be rapidly deployed and quickly erected anywhere in the world. General Manager Ian Hindmoor said: “This will be our second time exhibiting the EFASS range at IDEX. This range of military buildings really pushes the boundaries and is in a league of its own when it comes to the rapid deployment of robust and reliable shelters, hangars, warehouses and sunshades. It provides protection to personnel and vital equipment in the most challenging of environments. It also offers some unique qualities including new state-of-the- art door options and crane technology.”

Each hangar can be rapidly constructed using a number of steel fabricated components together with uniquely designed aluminum roof and leg sections, that bolt together to form the span trusses. When assembled, tough PVC coated polyester fabric sheets slide between the aluminium extrusions of adjacent spans, to form the shelter. Rubb Buildings Ltd will be showcasing all the latest innovations the EFASS range has to offer including new door configurations and combinations used in recent military operations.

Ian added: “We have been busy working on an exciting aircraft hangar project for Horizon International Flight Academy in Al Ain, UAE. Rubb provided three 24m x 36m steel and aluminium hybrid EFASS structures to Horizon and we are looking forward to showcasing this project and meeting new clients. IDEX is the ideal platform to do this and is part of our ongoing strategy to meet military requirements nationally and internationally.”

Structures are available in three spans: 11.1m (36ft), 20.4m (67ft), 25m (82ft), by any length, with multiple door options. They pack into 20ft ISO containers ready for transport by sea or air. With unmatched engineered fabric structures currently in action across the globe, Rubb has the ideal solution to military and defence application requirements.
