What are the load capacity combinations?
DomeGuys International retains the services of a structural engineer. At DomeGuys we do this because we feel it's vitally important to ensure the structural integrity of each new or modified dome design before we send it to the manufacturing floor. If your location is in a high-wind or hurricane zone, increased seismic activity or snowy region, we can assist you in determining if a standard frame will meet your needs or if a frame upgrade is required, taking a solid, engineering approach to safety and comfortability.
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
