NIXUS | RIBS is a high-pressure pneumatic hall of large span, using patented Rigid Inflatable Beam Structure (RIBS) technology. It is combining advantages of rigidity of solid structure halls with installation and transportation flexibility of inflatable halls.
RIBS structure system is based on multiple heavy-duty seamless pneumatic tubes of 6in diameter, pressurised to 3-8 bar (45psi – 120psi). After inflation the structure remains extremely rigid, resistant to strong wind and temperature fluctuations, able to withstand a much higher load as other known inflatable beams of similar size parameters.
In addition to its load resistance, multi-tube RIBS system is the safest inflatable technology on the market. In the case of eventual air leak in one tube the others are able to keep the shape without risk of structure collapse.
