A dome is truly a non-traditional option architecturally, and some might not fancy a domed roof on top of their commercial building. But a low-profile roof is one way to achieve the same dome benefits with a discreet roofline.
Dome Technology has developed a low-profile dome concept, which means the roof is still curved but in a more subtle way—so subtle that it’s often difficult to see the roof at all when approaching the building.
To accommodate a flatter, sleeker dome roof, post-tension reinforcing is often used where the dome and vertical wall interface.
These roofs can be finished in multiple ways, from tile and pavers to a “green” roof made of grass. All options are built upon an impermeable membrane, so leaks are never an issue.
