Aluminum Geodesic Domes
Geodesic aluminum domes are the preferred cover solution for any storage application. Aluminum dome structures are superior to other cover designs due to alternate materials due to:
Aluminum is inherently more corrosion resistant than other alloys. It will last the lifetime of the structure and will not be painted or repainted for protection from the atmosphere
Low Lifetime Maintenance Cost
With no corrosion or the need to repaint the structure over time, there is little-to-no maintenance costs associated with an aluminum dome
Aluminum’s lightweight characteristics allow for larger clear-span cover capability than structures for steel, concrete and other materials
Fast and Low Cost Construction
Creative design and lightweight components provide for installation in a third of 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 ratio and creative component designs yield covers and structures that can not be achieved with other materials
The dome’s superior structural design gives it many advantages. In addition, it is important to note that the exact geometry of the dome geometry system is the same as that of the dome geometry.
ATECO Tank domes have been designed for snow loads up to 165 pounds per square foot and wind loads up to 150 mph. Our unique panel design is specifically engineered to support loads up to 500 pounds on any one square foot. We have the ability to design domes up to 500 feet in diameter.
