Double Skin Pvc Air Dome

Double Skin PVC Air Domes

Double Skin PVC Air Domes are the industry leading air dome and are robust enough to endure storm force winds. Covair work with DUOL, the global leader in air supported structures, to make this innovative product available to UK businesses.

The main membrane is manufactured from two layers of fire-retardant polyester fabric, coated with PVC on both sides and welded together in vertical panels. The air in between the membranes creates an insulation barrier that improves heating and cooling efficiencies.

As with any dome, a Double Skin PVC Dome is supported solely by a continuous running fan creating an internal over-pressure and has no additional supporting structure. Entrance is via a revolving door to prevent air loss and maintain the slight over pressure inside. An emergency door can also be installed if required.

These domes have been installed all over the world in a variety of challenging and extreme environments including Siberia, Iceland and the Middle East. Covair/DUOL are a trusted air dome partner to many global sporting organisations and have previously worked with, and installed, football air domes for Manchester City, Watford FC, Cardiff City, Southampton FC, Sheffield Wednesday, QPR, Bolton Wanderers and more.

Double Skin PVC Air Dome Features

The main features and advantages of a Covair double skin PVC air dome are:

  • The domes are manufactured to the exact measurements of each site and are installed by a team of experienced Covair engineers
  • No external cables to hold snow or dirt and cause wear on the membrane
  • Internal LED lights that consume under half the power of halide lights are included.
  • In the event of snow, a burner is supplied to provide heating for melting snow
  • Double membrane design gives maximum insulation to conserve heat in winter and keep cool in summer
  • Reduced or no thermal bridging between the membranes (depending on design) that removes condensation
  • The translucent membrane has a 15-year warranty and a life expectancy in excess of 30 years
  • Fabric colours can be chosen for individual needs and logos or advertising can be added on the outside
  • These domes can cover vast areas of land - current record stands at 142m x 92m x 26m
  • No traditional buildings or frames inside the dome makes the utilisation of space very efficient and enables several types of design options, providing greater flexibility.
  • These air domes are significantly cheaper than traditional structures and do not require sophisticated site preparation.
  • The air domes are not considered as permanent structures which makes planning permission easier to obtain.

Double Skin PVC Air Dome Requirements

Planning Permission

This is usually necessary although requirements vary between regions. We can put you in touch with planning professionals for assistance.

Concrete Ring Beam

An 850mm x 400-650mm concrete ring beam around the perimeter of the courts is required to counterbalance the uplift forces of the dome.

Drainage

Perimeter drainage may be required around some site installations. This is to prevent rain water ingress and dome flooding.

Utilities

A dedicated electric supply will need to be installed to the fan control panel. Usually a 63 Amp three phase supply is sufficient.

Enabling Works

Concrete pads for doors and machinery, fence alterations for access, pathways, lighting and other considerations depending on the site. 

Summer Storage

In summer the dome can be folded away neatly and stored in a secure location away from sunlight. A shed is usually installed for storage.
