dome roofs for architectural projects
Clear-Span Aluminum Domes
Efficient in design, distinctive in appearance,
unsurpassed in quality and value - Aluminum Domes
are as beautiful as they are efficient and enduring.
The Aluminum Dome is a unique and patented triangulated
space truss skinned with aluminum panels secured
by a patented batten closure system. With an ability
to cover spans from 10 to more than 300 meter,
Aluminum Domes are specified for churches, arenas,
exhibition halls, planetariums, observatories
and many other applications wherever clear-span
roof systems are needed. Aluminum integrated structural
frames are permanent and lightweight. Optional
panel systems offer eye-dazzling options.
|| able to withstand high loads by providing greater stiffness and strength to height
ratio than any other dome geometry system (like snow loads of up to 165 pounds per square foot and windloads of up to
150 mph. or 240 km/hr)
||panel design is specifically engineered to support loads of up to 500 pounds on any one square foot
||high energy efficiency of an Aluminium Dome translates to reduced operating expenses. Since they're made of aluminum, they have the inherent advantage of high heat reflectivity and low emissivity. That means lower heating and cooling costs
||maintenance free, as the permanent aluminum exterior never rusts, rots, spalls, or solar degrades. Because Aluminum Domes use less material and labor than conventional constructions, overall costs are lower and construction time is faster. The built-in advantages and beauty of an Aluminum Dome will be appreciated for many years to come
||light weight and clear-span structure manufactured from aluminium and stainless stel
||can be fitted on tanks in service with a minimum of modifications required - service life expectation in excess of 40 year
||can be designed for each specific project -
||easy installation, full installation manuals and project support available
Self supporting structure
Geodesic domes are entirely self-supporting. Depending on the design and the
support structure, reaction forces at the base supports of the dome are minimal.
For this reason many of our domes are installed on PTFE-covered sliding supports. The dome itself is strong
enough to deal with its own internal forces. In other cases however support walls are used to
distribute loads from fixed bearing points of the dome. Any dome will be designed to deal with
local circumstances , local engineering codes and building regulations.
Aluminium dome design
As a result of the light weight, maintenance free
characteristics of an aluminium structure, an
aluminium dome is an option for any project where
an esthetical structure is required,
that is capable of covering large areas. The design of the dome structure
will be tailor made to fit the project involved.
Our extensive experience and track record in this
particular field, backed up from an experienced
engineering and design department is the best
available in the market. A variety of structures
and panel materials, different finishing and detailing
will exceed your expectations on realising an
eye-catching and functional building.
