What is the structural integrity of a DGI dome?
At DomeGuys International, we feel it is vitally important to ensure the structural integrity of each new or modified dome design before we send it to the manufacturing floor. We engineer each and every design to ensure safety and comfort when it's installed at your location. Contact us to discuss your needs, and we'll provide you with custom engineering, if needed.
We can engineer to your required load specifications; our standard domes are engineered to support the following load combination:
Snow load = 20 lbs per sq ft (~2.5' accumulation of fluffy snow)
Wind load = 100 mph (@ exposure C)
Dead load = 2500 lbs (spread over 5 top hubs)
Seismic load = 4
