New orders fly in for Rubb Military hangars

Rubb has delivered 13 aircraft hangars within the first six months of 2012 – and is celebrating orders for six more.


 

Rubb Buildings Ltd is an innovating world leader when it comes to the design, manufacture and delivery of relocatable helicopter and fixed wing aircraft 'super hangar' systems. The Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System, which also features sunshades and warehouses, is uniquely suitable for the military and aviation services, designed to be rapidly deployed and quickly erected anywhere in the world.

 

Throughout the first six months of 2012 Rubb has supplied EFASS hangars to the UK Royal Marines, the UK Royal Air Force, the USA Army, KBR and Rio Tinto – making a total of 13 structures. New orders include three 25m span x 36m long EFASS hangars for the Canadian Forces and three 25m span x 36m long steel-framed EFASS structures for Horizon Flight Academy in the UAE.

 

General Manager Ian Hindmoor said: "Our EFASS range of military buildings provides the highest quality 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. The product range is really taking off and we are looking forward to meeting new clients at Eurosatory."

 

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.

 

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.

 

Ian added: "We attended defence shows in the UAE, Brunei and the UK last year and our products were very well received. This year we are looking forward to meeting with old and new clients in Europe and Eurosatory is the ideal platform to do this. This is part of our ongoing strategy to meet military requirements nationally and internationally."

 

Two 11.1m span x 16m EFASS workshops complete the set. Ian added: "These are the first 11.1m EFASS projects we have completed and we are very excited to see these hangars used for land, sea and air vehicle storage and maintenance. The 'Little Bird' hangars each feature one 10m x 4m Heli-Door, one closed gable end and a 1000kg gantry crane."
