Single Skin PVC Air Dome

Single Skin PVC Air Dome

Covair Single Skin PVC Air Domes are constructed from a stronger (900g/m2), translucent, white, PVC single membrane and run at a higher pressure. This enables the dome to withstand much higher wind forces.

Although the PVC is heavier, the membrane is made up of separate sections that still make it suitable for seasonal dismantling and re-inflation. By including heating, the domes are also protected against snowfall.

Covair’s Single Skin PVC Air Domes were developed following the success of our entry-level Single Polyethylene Skin Air Domes. At the request of our existing clients, we designed this more robust PVC air dome that also includes internal LED lighting and heating.

Single Skin PVC Air Dome Features

The main features and advantages of a Covair Single 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
  • 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
  • An inverter is fitted to enable pressure regulation which reduces power consumption by up to 50%
  • No external cables to hold snow or dirt and cause wear on the membrane
  • The life expectancy of the membrane is around 15-20 years and a 5 year manufacturers guarantee is provided.

Single 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 single 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.
