Environmental Tank Covers

Rubb can also offer environmental protection structures to prevent airborne dust and odour pollution, to prevent algae growth in water supplies and for many other environmental applications.

Custom designed environmental tank covers

Rubb tank covers prevent environmental contamination of stored liquids and specially sealed Rubb environmental protection structures serve as containments for asbestos and other harmful materials. They can be effectively sealed to provide a negative-pressure environment.

Low maintenance and costs

Our high-quality membrane materials and post-production galvanized welded frames deliver durability over time, making the cost of maintaining Rubb environmental buildings more economical compared to conventional structures.

High Quality Membrane

Energy-efficient roof membranes

Translucent membranes allow natural daylight to illuminate the 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 environmental structure door and access solutions. 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 environmental building or cover type, depending on their operational needs.

Rapid construction, installation and relocation

Rubb environmental buildings 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 buildings 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 construction process.

Customisable features

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.
