We provide the most sustainable air domes. A sustainable building means a reasonable investment, low operating costs and a quicker return on investment: a win-win-win solution.
Turn-key construction projects can be ready for use in less than 3 months and are completed at a significantly lower cost per square meter than any conventional building. The combination of the latest materials and technologies used in DUOL air domes offers you low operating costs and a comfortable playing or controlled storage conditions inside the structure, regardless of weather.
Air domes provide great flexibility and can be used as a seasonal, permanent or temporary covering. Our structures are designed, manufactured and built to meet any local building codes and are able to withstand heavy snow, high or low temperatures and high winds in all types of environments. The dome is suitable to cover any sports field, warehouses, industrial facilities, etc
Why DUOL Air Domes; Difference from Traditional Domes
Air domes general operation principle
The air dome is a large clear span, covered with one or more layers of special PVC coated fabric and anchored to the ground, under internal pressure and without any kind of construction; the pressurized air is the main construction element.
The ventilation system provides a slight overpressure inside the air dome to ensure the distinguished form of the airdome, hence the stability of the airdome under all climatic condition. It is necessary to inflate certain amount of air in the airdome constantly. The same inflating units can work as a heating unit, to heat up the entire space. The optimal pressure inside the air dome is 200-300 Pascal under normal conditions, depending on the air dome size and specifications.
The ventilation system ensures the fresh air circulation inside the air dome to keep a healthy, fresh and cool environment for the visitors inside the air dome.
In the case of local electricity supply failure or pressure loss, the emergency backup unit intervenes immediately; the supply of electricity to all units can additionally be provided by the electrical generator. Air domes are built to code and are structurally stable structures – even in extreme weather.
The air dome concept is relatively new and was implemented on a large scale by David H. Geiger during Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan in 1970. After the initial prototype, many research & innovations followed in this field in order to create the best possible structure. With huge experiences and many innovative solutions, we are proud to be market and technology leader.
Your air dome may include optional items such as AC system, insulation, backup generators and specialized lighting controls… Duol air domes have many unique advantages including latest membrane technology, certified quality, officially tested thermal insulation. Our membranes are fire retardant and coated with a special self-cleaning film to preserve the perfect whiteness, guaranteeing maintenance-free operation of fabric building and significantly extend air dome lifespan.
