Aluminum Geodesic Domes
Geodesic aluminum domes are the preferred cover solution for any storage application. Aluminum dome structures are superior to other cover designs of alternate materials due to:
Aluminum is inherently corrosion resistant versus other alloys. It will last the lifetime of the structure and will not need to be painted or repainted for protection from the atmosphere
Low Lifetime Maintenance Cost
With no corrosion or the need to repaint to protect the structure over time, there is little-to-no maintenance costs associated with an aluminum dome
Aluminum’s lightweight characteristics allows for larger clear-span cover capability than structures utilizing steel, concrete and other materials
Fast and Low Cost Construction
Creative design and lightweight components provide for installation in 1/3 the time it takes to install other cover systems. Less time, labor and equipment needs combine for a low total cost of installation
Aluminum’s excellent strength-to-weight ratios and creative component design yield covers and structures that cannot be achieved with other materials
The dome’s superior structural design gives it many advantages. Using proprietary variations of geodesic geometry, our domes are noted for their ability to meet exacting live load requirements by providing greater stiffness and strength, pound-for-pound, than any other dome geometry system.
ATECO Tank domes have been designed for snow loads of up to 165 pounds per square foot and windloads of up to 150 mph. Our unique panel design is specifically engineered to support loads of up to 500 pounds on any one square foot. We have the ability to design domes up to 500 feet in diameter.
