RUBB is one of the largest and most well respected manufacturers of fabric tension buildings and structures in the world. Leading the industry in innovative design and engineering with several thousand buildings in service in over 40 countries on six continents, in some of the toughest and most challenging environments on the planet.

Originating in Norway, the first RUBB building was fabricated in 1968. Now nearly fifty years later RUBB has established a worldwide reputation for responsible engineering, solid, durable, reliable and high quality products having exceptional longevity.

Above all RUBB stands for integrity, innovation and a passion for doing things right.


  • Both standard and custom building designs and fabrication available in a wide range of configurations and profiles to suit site, application, logistics and customer needs
  • Column and support free (clear spans) up to 100 meters (328 feet) in width
  • All steel structures are ‘’hot-dip galvanized’’ after fabrication to the ASTM A-123 A-89 standards for longevity and superior corrosion protection
  • Impermeable superior quality heavy 28 oz/yd² PVC coated polyester membrane/fabric provides exceptional longevity resistance to wear and tear
  • Building range products are designed to strictly comply with building code requirements for roof, wind, snow, seismic and other loads, anywhere in the world
  • White translucent roof provides substantial transmission of natural light thus creating a bright and safer work environment while reducing energy costs
  • Robustly engineered for tough climatic conditions and suitable for either permanent or temporary building solutions
  • Continuous welded wall and roof PVC cladding eliminates any water or air infiltration
  • Proven low building maintenance costs over time versus traditional buildings
  • The PVC membrane is UV-resistant, flame retardant, has self-extinguishing and self-ventilating properties in case of a fire
  • High quality hot-dipped galvanizing provides excellent resistance to transport and erection scratches and damage
  • Structures accommodate moderate ground differential settlement allowing for simplified foundation configurations
  • High vertical sidewalls can be extended (up to 25 meters to eaves) for interior space efficiency
  • Gable vent openings to allow for natural ventilation
  • Pre-fabricated modular truss construction designs allows for ease of shipping by truck or container for shipping by rail or vessel.
  • Cost competitive and flexible alternative to traditional steel & steel clad buildings


  • The most comprehensive warranty in the industry
  • Engineered to withstand high wind and snow loads
  • Speedy delivery and erection
  • Minimal and flexible foundation requirements
  • Structures are all prefabricated and bolted on site (no field welding required at installation)
  • Relocatable buildings
  • Fully extendable
  • PVC fabric and steel frame are completely recyclable
  • Structures can be engineered and designed to support and accommodate overhead cranes, belt conveyors (c/w trippers or plows), shuttle conveyors or other components and heavy loads


  • Forced air ventilation systems
  • Paint application (epoxy or polyurethane) or powder coating over galvanized steel – commonly referred to as a Duplex-System for highly corrosive environments
  • Broad selection of motorized door arrangements of various types, widths and heights
  • Building insulation - ThermoHALL® patented system consisting of flexible PVC fabric pocket channels filled with high density fiberglass insulation (up to R-35), eliminates thermal bridging
  • Dehumidification
  • Dust collecting
  • Heating / Air Conditioning
  • Inner skin liners attached to the interior building truss frames for condensation or dust control or for isolating the steel frame from highly corrosive materials
  • Complete lighting system to suit building vocation and customer needs
  • Pre-wired electrical package
  • Lean-tos, canopies, awnings and connection or link tunnels
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Single span buildings and Multi-Span buildings with any number of bays
  • Gable or side wall signage options
  • Solar energy adaptable


  • Canadian Standards Association (CSA) : Certification of Manufacturers of Steel Building Systems CAN/CSA A660-10
  • Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) : Certification to CSA Standard W47.1
  • ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System Certification
