RIBS – Large span high pressure inflatable hall

NIXUS | RIBS is a high pressure pneumatic hall of large span, using patented RIBS technology (Rigid Inflatable Beam Structure). It is combining advantages of rigidity of solid structure halls with installation and transportation flexibility of inflatable halls.

CONTACT PRODUCER

RIBS structure system is based on multipled heavy duty seamless pneumatic tubes of 6’’ diameter, pressurized to 4-8 bar (45 – 120 psi). After inflation the structure remains extremely rigid, resistant to strong wind and temperature fluctuations, able to withstand much higher load as other known inflatable beams of similar size parameters. Besides to its load resistance, multi-tube RIBS system is the safest inflatable technology on the market. It is possible to control the pressure from the whole system as one air chamber up to each single tube in an arch. In a case of eventual air leak in one tube the others are able to keep the shape without risk of structure collapse.

NIXUS | RIBS is designed for general or long term use (field hospital, briefing room, storage hall, maintenance hangar etc.). It is an ideal solution as UAV hangar too.
The canopy of RIBS hall is made of opaque 1000D polyester fabric, both sides PVC coated, well waterproof, fire retardant, suitable to very low temperatures of -50°C, with an optional IR membrane.
For easier handling the hall may be split into more segments. Each segment is packed in a strong PVC waterproof bag, with an option of additional transport packing in Clip-Lok boxes.

I NEED MORE INFO

RIBS is the safest inflatable system on the market, even in the case of air leakage from one or several chambers, it is still very stable

all air chambers are fully pressurized

one air chamber is empty

two air chambers are empty

.

all air chambers are empty

(all three air chambers would have to be damaged to collapse the beam)

Extreme wind resistant
