Agri Dome Shelter

Animal Shelter Dome

Dome Shelter Structures

The Agri-Dome is one of the most versatile dome shelter structures in the South Africa — the structure of 100 uses. Each dome shelter offers you a combination of the best materials available and design. Every detail you desire is carefully crafted. Every option you select is seamlessly added — all to exceptional create a customized pre-engineered structure that is uniquely yours. Agri-Dome sizes are available in standard widths or can be can be customized to fit your needs.

Best of Storage Solutions - BOSS

Our Super Strong Agri-Dome Stuctures are engineer designed to meet and comply with SABS wind load ratings of 100km p/h to withstand South Africa’s variable weather conditions. We insist on using fully hot dip galvanised square tubing with a minimum of 3 mm structural steel for portals and 700 gsm heavy duty rip-stop Pvc covers with UV stabilisers for extra durability in the sun. When comparing our shelters to steel structures, please note the additional number of portals and purlins used which provide added strength, durability and of course safety.

Key Features

The Agri-Dome Shelter Structure come with our industry leading 10 Year Warranty

  • Maximum usable space; no columns or poles to interfere with your interior plans or ease of movements
  • Maintains shape, does not shrink, swell, split, warp, rust or rot away; steel frames resist corrosion
  • Fewer pests; corner-free design means no hiding places for rodents, to nest or feed on
  • Is not treated with arsenic, acid, or pesticides — rain simply washes the building clean
  • Strongest Rip stop PVC Covers; withstand high winds and natural weather events
  • Acoustics inside are exceptional; no sounds of pelting rain on sheets
  • Abundant interior sunlight; no artificial lighting needed during the day; decreased utility bills
  • Controlled climate; buildings stay warmer in winter, cooler in summer; energy is saved — utility bills reduced
  • Many ventilation options; interior smells fresh; natural light helps to eliminate moisture and bacteria
  • Self cleaning; never needs painting; dust, dirt, pollutants wash off with water; no rotting parts to replace
  • Low cost per square meter; initial investment is low
  • Very fast to build; construction costs less
  • Permanent or Temporary: Structures may be moved, disassembled or sold if no longer needed
  • Shelters are easy Manufactured to SABS (South Arica Buro of Standards)

Shelter Advantages

The inherent advantages of natural diffused lighting, clear span interior space, speed of erection and beter performance for animal production, safety, management and overall growth. 

Natural Lighting

The light transmission through the membrane covering allows enough natural lighting for the interior lighting level to exceed the requirements of the building code. The infiltration of sun light into the structure is beneficial while keeping the harmful Ultra Violet light out.

When you walk inside a membrane-covered frame structure and experience the huge volume of wide-open space, you’ll also enjoy the benefits of a naturally lit atmosphere and peaceful acoustics.

Clear Span Interior Space

Although the membrane-covered frame structure is not the only system that has clear span capabilities, it is the only system when based on economics, building deflection and ease of installation that makes economic sense.

The Agri Dome spans from 8 – 30 meter and can be mounted onto timber poles, bunker walls or shipping containers anywhere in Africa. These fabric shelter structures have proven to be a building solution in the harshest weather conditions on earth.

Speed of Erection

The usual installation time for a complete structure is in days or weeks not months. The pre manufactured supports and the light weight membrane make installation a quick and un complicated affair.

10 Year Warranty - Industry Best

Industry best limited 10 Year warranty providing replacement of any faulty part/s for 10 years from the date of purchase – that’s peace of mind for you and confidence in our engineered certified shelters.

No Polyethylene covers used!

We only use industry leading, fire retardant, Rip Stop, 700gsm, UV stabilised PVC covers with optional end walls – the same material chosen by trucks and international transport companies.

Our Rip Stop PVC covers cost us significantly more than we could buy lightweight PE covers! It’s worth it because tensile tests show PVC is significantly stronger, stretches 7 times less and lasts longer than the other lightweight materials on offer when continually exposed to the heavy demands and constant high wind/snow loads with large variant weather pressures and events.

Fire Performance

The fire performance of membrane structures is unique when compared to conventional types of construction. Although the building membranes are combustible, the fire hazard from the structure as a complete building is comparable or better than that of a non-combustible building.

The non-combustible construction provides the advantage that until the building fails, the fire is contained completely within the structure and contributes no fuel to the fire. On the negative side, this containment can cause the fire to progress further and more rapidly due to energy feedback from the enclosure and containment of the heat within the space. In addition the building contains the smoke making escape and fire fighting more difficult and smoke damage more severe.

The membrane cover of the membrane-covered frame structure will melt where it is in contact with the flame, creating an opening which provides a significant benefit by allowing the heat and smoke to escape and reduces the energy feedback to the fire, acting as a smoke and heat vent. Membranes contribute a very small amount of fuel to the fire as they burn. These membranes will not ignite and spread the fire across the membrane.
