How strong is a DGI dome?
Our domes are made from an engineered, self-supporting system of high strength, lightweight steel struts that are connected together with an industry-rated nut and bolt system. Unlike traditional event tents, awnings, canopies, tilt ups and older standards for event promotions, the geodesic dome gets proportionally stronger as their size increases. This strength not only makes them incredibly weather tolerant and able to withstand high-wind and hurricane-like situations they can bear heavy snow loads in winter climates.
The structural integrity and strength of domes allows them to suspend internal loads of up to 2500 lbs directly from their frames making them ideal for seamlessly suspending lighting and sound equipment, special effects, set dressing and ambiance without having to introduce upright truss spans, cabling or other intrusive elements.
