Which industries can our AgriDome be used for?
Shelter Structures are a necessity in most industries. Especially industries that require multiple heavy types of machinery. Therefore, when we engineered the AgriDome we made sure that our structures have multiple applications that can be used for a variety of industries.
Today we are looking at many of the AgriDome uses and benefits.
What is the AgriDome shelter?
The AgriDome shelter has been designed to suit a variety of needs.
It is built from a steel frame (galvanized structural steel Q235) that is covered with heavy-duty membrane covers (PVC / Vinyl). The structure is built to the highest standards and complies with regulations set by SABS (South African Bureau of Standards). The whole structure is strong enough to withstand cyclonic wind load ratings to ensure that our customers are getting the best shelter possible.
Benefits of using Galvanized Steel:
- Structural Steel (Q235) so you know that you are not getting sub-par products
- Corrosion protection
- Strongest mounting methods used. (Additional portals and purlins added)
- No harmful chemicals used for added protection ( No arsenic, acid or pesticides)
- The structure is built in a way that requires no middle posts, allowing you to have the maximum amount of open space to use
Benefits of using PVC (Vinyl) Fabric Membrane Cover:
- Fire-Resistant (Does not contribute as fuel to the fire)
- UV Stabilized
- No wire bracings needed
- White (Reflects light, keeping the building cooler in summer)
- Self-Cleaning (Rain will wash off any debris, dust, and dirt hassle-free)
Additional Benefits of our Shelter Structures:
- Permanent or Temporary Shelter
The structure can be disassembled and moved. Therefore, it works great as a mobile/portable shelter structure. Additionally, the structure allows you to bypass following municipal building regulations for adding/building a structure on your land due to the fact that it is not a permanent building.
No need to deal with land inspectors, architects, and building companies to get your shelter up and running.
- Ventilation and Lighting Options
The interior of the shelter/building smells clean and fresh due to the fact that there is proper ventilation from all sides of the structure. Furthermore, the AgriDome allows natural light to filter through on the sides and kills off any bacteria that may otherwise flourish in a dark, humid environment. The strong presence of natural light and ventilation also helps you cut down on costs in the long term because you don’t have to spend extra money on electricity for lighting and temperature control.
- Lower Cost than traditional building methods
The AgriDome boasts with SABS approval. However, in most cases, it is still more affordable to purchase an AgriDome than a lower non-rated conventional shelter.
Therefore, the initial investment is low, with high standards (10-year warranty). Furthermore, the shelter is faster to build than other conventional shelters and can be disassembled and moved like mentioned above.
Shelter Structures for Farmers
Farmers always need extra space for various applications. Our AgriDomes are perfect for almost any application on your farm. It can be used for:
In need of a shelter for farming equipment, vehicles and more? AgriDome will work perfectly for you. The shelter protects the equipment from sun rays, which reduces degradation due to UV rays. Furthermore, you can rest assured that your equipment is protected from rain, hail, and wind.
- Feedlot / Animal Shelter
Our dome structure is perfect for housing animals. It has been designed to have no corners. Therefore, there is nowhere for rodents and pests to hide, breed and feed. This can reduce losses in animals due to ill health and loss of feed due to pests and rodents.
The shelter is suited for harsh weather, so you can be sure that your animals will be protected from the natural elements.
- Yard covers for auction displays and horse arenas
Because this dome shade tent/shelter is portable, it can be taken anywhere you need it. Many farmers choose to take their livestock to auctions all over the country, therefore, this shelter structure is perfect. It can be taken with you to the auction to ensure that your livestock and/or horses are protected from any harsh weather conditions you might face.
Shelter Structures for Aviation Industry
There are two major factors to consider when installing an airplane or helicopter hanger:
- Space. You need a massive amount of open, unobstructed space.
- The amount of wind-load ratings it can withstand
Luckily, the AgriDome shelter structure accounts for both of these factors.
The lack of columns and poles inside the structure makes it ideal for airplane and helicopter hangers. Therefore, there is no interference with your interior plans or ease of movements.
Additionally, the AgriDome is SABS approved. Therefore, it can withstand cyclonic weather as mentioned above. Therefore, it will be able to withstand all the wind speeds and gasts created by airplanes and helicopters landing or launching in close proximity.
Greenhouses always require a controlled environment. The farmer needs to have control over lighting, ventilation and, temperatures.
Therefore, the PVC Cover and metal shelter (AgriDome) is the ideal product to create a fast, reliable and efficient greenhouse on your property. The wide-open space underneath the dome shade tent allows you to build/create a space that works for you. Whether it is a hydroponic system, various shelving units or planting your fruit and vegetable directly in the ground underneath the shade tent.
This shelter structure can be used for small-scale greenhouse farming or large scale farming as our AgriDomes are available in a wide variety of sizes.
Another industry that benefits from the AgriDome is various entertainment industries.
