RAF complied EFASS military aircraft hangars
The Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System (EFASS) range of military structures is available in three span widths by any length, with different door options to accommodate fixed-wing aircraft and rotary wing aircraft.
Span widths include 11.1m, 20.4m and 25m, with Heli-Door, Trident and Roller Shutter door options. Hangars can be equipped if necessary with a 2,000kg gantry crane, facilitating airforce maintenance operations and craft maneuverability around the facility.
EFASS military aircraft hangars have been designed to comply with a stringent compliance matrix from the UK Royal Air Force, which required rapid deployment capabilities worldwide.
The storage and maintenance aircraft shelters were designed to accommodate fixed wing aircraft, particularly focusing on the Tornado, where they had to perform as a front-line maintenance and storage hangar and a sunshade (both doors open).
All EFASS aircraft storage facilities pack into 20ft ISO containers for transport worldwide.
With a proven and trusted track record, worldwide clients include the UK, USA, Canadian, Lithuanian and UAE forces. Rubb’s expertise is the ideal solution to meet your airforce’s building requirements.
Aluminium and steel hybrid helicopter maintenance structures
Recent additions to the military range include aluminium and steel hybrid EFASS helicopter maintenance structures especially designed for Horizon Flight Academy (EFASS SV) and the EFASS UAV POD.
The EFASS range of military structures is manufactured at the company’s plant in the UK.

Products and Services
The EFASS military aircraft hangar is mission ready to support defence operations out in the field. These defence standard military aircraft hangars can accommodate a wide variety of fixed wing aircraft and rotary wing aircraft for storage, maintenance, and swift deployment.
The EFASS warehouse superstructures are ideal for all types of military storage and logistical operation as they provide a space with large clear internal dimensions. The structure design capabilities are exactly the same as the EFASS aircraft and helicopter hangars.
The EFASS aircraft hangar has been specially converted into a functional aircraft sunshade to protect vital aircraft and crews from searing temperatures and powerful UV rays.
Rubb’s Expeditionary Forces Aircraft Shelter System (EFASS) range features relocatable rapid erect hangars, which are suitable for military land and sea vehicle maintenance and storage requirements.
The Rubb Military UAV storage and maintenance hangars benefit from a low internal volume. This makes the facilities more cost-effective to maintain (electrics, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) and is designed to be compatible with military loadings.
