Aluminum Geodesic Domes and covers
Geodesic Domes for storage tanks are spherical frame structures that are self-supporting. The geodesic frame is covered with attractive, aluminum panels. These alloys have a proven history of weather resistance even in the harshest environments in the world. This virtually eliminates the need for periodic maintenance, coatings, or paint for the life of the structure. Each dome is designed with the most modern computer technology to check all loading combinations to ensure safety and integrity under all conditions.
The geodesic dome covers are custom engineered for your unique structure. The self-supporting design allows maximum overhead space utilization and provides interference-free operation for floating roofs and other internals. The aspect ratio of the dome can be selected for your location and specific application, offering a range from a very flat, low profile to a high dome for more internal clearance.
Aluminum domes are less expensive than other materials like steel. This makes them a cost-effective solution for covering large water storage tanks. Our aluminum domes are easy to install, which means that they can be quickly erected over water storage tanks. This is important when time is of the essence, such as in emergency situations
Also, a wide range of accessories (vents, skylights, dormers, hatches, foam connections, etc.) is available to meet all your needs.
UIG’s Geotruss Design and Clear Span Covers and Flat Panel Roofs
EVERDOME® Clear Span Roofs are designed to span long distances without the need for intermediate supports, which reduces the risk of leaks and provides an unobstructed view of the reservoir.
Aluminum clear span roofs are highly durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions such as extreme heat, cold, heavy rain, and snow.
Despite its strength, aluminum is a lightweight material that makes it easy to install and transport. It is also highly resistant to corrosion, making it an excellent choice for covering reservoirs that contain water.
Overall, aluminum clear span roofs are an ideal choice for covering reservoirs because they provide durability, strength, lightweight design, corrosion resistance, and clear span functionality.
