Steel-reinforced concrete application
Strength to support loads from inside and out
Our thin-shell domes are constructed using the shotcrete method: Multiple applications of shotcrete materials and reinforcing steel rebar are applied until the necessary design thickness is achieved and the dome is superior in its strength. When completed, this steel-reinforced dome is capable of bearing greater loads than any other structure of similar capacity and cost.
Strongest structure in the world
With each project carefully completed to engineer specifications, the result is a precise dome, nature’s perfectly strong shape. The dome’s double curvature requires no interior supports or beams and provides excellent strength from every direction, including at the apex, a place many bulk-storage domes need extra support for headhouses and conveyor systems.
Built to last
Protected from water and extreme temperature fluctuations, the concrete structure has the potential to last centuries. With an open, dust- and fire-resistant interior, the dome offers numerous benefits for storing and handling demanding bulk materials.
