Geodesic Dome Roofs

Geodesic dome roofs are a great option for your water and wastewater storage tanks. Geodesic domes offer some great benefits over regular roofing:

Incredible Strength – Geodesic dome roofs are one of the only man-made structures that get proportionally stronger as they increase in size. They do so while being lighter than traditional roofs and requiring much fewer building materials. These materials are also highly fire-resistant. A geodesic roof gives your tank the strength to withstand any complications and keep whatever is stored inside sade.

Weather Resistant – One of the most useful aspects of geodesic roofs is their ability to resist weather conditions such as snow, rain, wind, etc. The dome is constructed to have fewer flat surfaces allowing for more effectiveness in shedding snow and rain from the roof. The flat surfaces also redirect strong winds around the tank to prevent any major damage during strong gusts or hurricanes. If you live in an area that is prone to natural disasters, adding on a geodesic roof can save you a lot of money in repair costs or even replacement costs due to weather damage.

Leak Protection – Geodesic domes prevent anything from seeping into your storage tank, while also resisting leakage. A geodesic dome can cut emissions from things like gasoline and chemical compounds by anywhere from 80 to 90 percent. Not only are these domes better for the environment, they are also better for your bottom line.

Easy Install and Maintenance – Geodesic dome roofs are very easy to install and maintain. Often times the roof is constructed and then lifted onto the tank by air or by crane. They also are much easier to maintain than normal roofing. These roofs can be made with aluminum alloys that are resistant to rust and corrosion. This leads to fewer maintenance costs and more money to reinvest in the things you care about.
