PVC Membrane Roofing is essential in many industries that require extra space, protection, and shelter. In this post, we will be exploring the world of PVC Membrane covers. Therefore, you will have all the details you need to have regarding these membrane covers that you can make an informed decision.
What is PVC Membrane material?
PVC stands for Polyvinyl chloride. The PVC Membranes at Aquadam is manufactured from the highest quality raw materials to ensure that they are fire-resistant, ripstop and UV stabilized.
This membrane material is flexible and resembles fabric. As a result, the finished products (PVC Membrane cover) can be used for a myriad of applications. We will discuss their uses in the section below.
These membrane covers are made from 700gsm (grams per square meter) without any wire bracings. Therefore, these membrane roofing covers are ideal for just about any setting and purpose. This type of PVC membrane roofing is versatile and durable!
How do we use this roofing membrane?
AT Aquadam our engineers have worked tirelessly to create the perfect structure to go with our PVC Covers. This is known as the AgriDome.
Our Agridome is made with one of the strongest frame structures. Hot dipped galvanized structural steel (Q235) is used to create the frame for this Agricultural Dome. This gives you, the customer, peace of mind when it comes to the structural integrity of our Agri Domes.
Furthermore, we also make use of one of the strongest mounting methods, by incorporating extra portals and purlins. Each and every portal is mounted to a pre-welded spigot and galvanized base plate. This allows the AgroDome’s structure to evenly distribute the stress loadings across the surface of the Agri Dome.
We use our PVC Fabric Membrane covers in conjunction with our AgriDome steel frame to ensure that our customers are covered! No matter the weather!
Our Fabric Membrane Covers are heavyweight. Therefore, they can withstand harsh weather conditions like excessive wind speeds and rain.

Our AgriDomes come in various standard sizes:
- 2.2m (Height) x 6m (Width)

Why choose a PVC Membrane Cover
Everyone needs more space! Especially when you are a farmer. Agriculture requires vast open spaces. Additionally, farmers need storage sheds to be able to safely store their equipment, etc.
A few examples of what our Agridomes can be used for:
- Farming Shelters / Barns to protect animals from natural weather conditions
- Yard covers for livestock auction displays or horse arenas
- Weather protection and storage of farming equipment, feed, and other farming consumables.
- Outdoor work areas
- Aviation Hangers for Aeroplanes
A farmer’s equipment and animals are his bread and butter. Therefore, farmers require strong, durable shelters and storage. Our AgriDome comes with various benefits that can make a farmer rest easy knowing his assets are protected:
Our AgriDome covers and structures are fire-resistant. Therefore, you never have to worry about the damage to your investment. Whether you are using it for storage or animal shelters, you can be sure that the structure will be protected from unexpected fires that may break out on your farm.
Ripstop fabrics are woven fabrics using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving, (thick) reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern.
Therefore, ripping and tears in your membrane cover is a problem of the past.
UV stands for Ultraviolet Light. The most common sources of UV light comes from the sun, fluorescent lights and curing lamps.
Most plastics will absorb UV light rays. As a result of this, the plastic will slowly start to degrade, lose its color and strength. Therefore, we ensured that we included a UV stabilizer into the manufacturing process to ensure that this will not happen with your PVC Fabric membrane cover.
Stronger, less stretch, durable
This fabric membrane cover is ideal for farming environments due to its strength.
Furthermore, it stretches 7 times less than the convention covers. Additionally, it is more durable than most other lightweight materials and can withstand harsh weather conditions.
Our AgriDomes are built to withstand wind speeds up to 24kms p/h! Furthermore, they are engineered to comply with the SABS (South African Bureau of Standards) specifications to withstand cyclonic wind load ratings.
