Sophisticated in every sense, our newest DBS ECO air dome leads the way when it comes to technological innovation, as it includes advanced building automation and a custom DBS HVAC system, which allow for extremely low power consumption.
Taking air dome design to new heights, DBS Engineering collaborated with JKMM arhitects to create this unique wave shaped structure with panoramic windows, which allow bypasser to watch football tournaments taking place inside.
Air domes have become very popular in the last couple of years, especially for sports facilities. Clients frequently choose our air dome solutions, because they trust in our products.
DBS air domes are made from high quality and energy efficient membrane systems and equipped with latest technology, which ensures low cost operation and simple maintenance of the facility. Most of our air domes are managed from our SmartDome system, which is very popular among users.
An air dome is an inflatable building formed from one or more layers of fabric – membrane. Air units continuously pump air into the structure, creating the necessary air pressure that allows the fabric envelope (membrane) to stay inflated.
Which methods are used to fix the air dome into the ground?
The anchoring system is one of the essential elements of any building. This means that the membrane is ¨fixed¨ into the ground or foundation by a so-called anchoring system. There are several different anchoring methods, depending on how long the hall will be placed (temporary or permanent).
How is the supporting element carried out, if there is no construction below the membrane?
The main carrying element is air inside the air dome. The air dome is designed to have constant overpressure (around 300 Pa) and that is the main mechanism that holds the air domes membrane in place (small movements of membrane is allowed due to weather phenomena, such as wind and rain…).
From which materials is air dome membrane made of?
Typically used material is PVC coated with a PVDF top coat.
