Welded Base Plate Design

The double truss roof design significantly enhances the structural integrity and load-bearing capacity of the shelter. Welding the base plates to the containers ensures a permanent, rigid connection that can withstand heavier loads, including heavy rain, snow, or wind.

Welded base plates are exceptionally durable and can better resist the constant vibrations, movements, or environmental stressors typically associated with remote areas and/or industrial settings. This makes this dome shelter a wise choice for long-term use without the need for constant maintenance or anchoring adjustments.

Why Choose Our 60x40ft Dome Shelter?

Unmatched Durability

Crafted from high-tensile, UV-resistant, and fire-retardant 900GSM, heavy-duty PVC fabric cover, 1/2 front wall and 1/2 end wall design, supported by a robust, double truss galvanised steel frame. This dome shelter is built to withstand Australia’s harsh weather, heavy winds, snow loads (in NSW, VIC, TAS), and even seismic activities. This high engineering standard guarantees the longevity and resilience that your large-scale projects demand.

Efficient and Easy Assembly

Emphasising how fast these structures can be assembled, our Dome Shelters require minimal tools to build the entire shelter, making them ideal for quick operational start-up even in remote locations. Of course, the span and weight of double trussed structures means additional equipment and lifting gear is essential for a safe construction outcome.

They’re designed to take on whatever the weather throws at them, ensuring whatever you’ve got inside stays safe and sound.

Space Maximised: Thanks to their curved design, these domed shelters give you loads of room inside.

In this case you’re getting 216 M2 of undercover space, totally weatherproofed and can be converted into a fully enclosed environment with the addition of a back and front wall with huge pull-up door.

They’re a one-size-fits-all, fully adaptable solution that can adapt to whatever you need, making them a smart pick for any project.

Saves You Money: Compared to building a traditional steel structure on a massive concrete slab, going with a container dome shelter can save a lot of money, and make your project budget go further than you imagined. Becasue of how they are made, they’re a lot cheaper to put up since they need fewer materials and less time to install. It’s all about getting a shelter built fast, with no fuss, and having the confidence you made the right decision.

Easy to Keep Up: Once your dome shelter is up, there’s really not much you need to do. The materials and build quality means these shelters are built to last. Forget about spending your time and money on constant repairs or regular maintenance, it doesn’t happen with a dome shelter. Of course, with any large structure of this kind, there needs to be periodical adjustment/tensioning of the roof cover and/or additional walls when required.

Move It If You Need To: Some projects are always fluid. Materials and equipemnt storage requirements can change as time goes by. Things might need to be moved around, and so can these shelters. If you need to pick up and relocate, having a semi-permanent dome shelter means you can easily take it where it’s needed next, saving you the hassle and expense of starting from scratch.

Kind to the Planet: Besides keeping your costs down, these shelters can also be a win for the environment. The design means better natural light and air flow, cutting down on energy use. Plus, they’re a greener choice with less waste compared to traditional building methods.

In short, choosing a container dome shelter is about making a smart, flexible investment that not only saves you money and hassle but also provides a reliable, durable solution for whatever your project or business needs might be.

Installation Guide Summary

Note: To ensure precise and correct setup, a comprehensive and detailed installation and assembly guide is included.

1. Container Alignment

Position your shipping containers to align with the predetermined width dimensions of the shelter. This ensures that the entire dome structure will fit securely and maintain stability.

2. Base Rail Assembly

Assemble the steel base rails by joining them together as per instructions. Once assembled, install these rails along the top edge of each container. This forms the foundational support for the arches.

3. Arch Construction

Lay out the arch sections on a flat surface. Carefully attach these sections together to form the complete arch structure. This step requires attention to detail to ensure each section is correctly aligned and securely fastened together.

4. Arch Installation

Proceed to lift each assembled arch one at a time. This step will require lifting equipment depending on the size and weight of the arches. Positioning each arch onto the previously installed base plates on top of the shipping containers, and secure them down.

5. Cover Installation

Start by gently unpacking the shelter cover onto a flat surface. Lift the cover onto one container, then methodically pull one side of the cover up and over the arch to the other container. Secure the edges of the cover firmly, applying the correct tension to ensure a snug and secure fit. This step is crucial for weatherproofing and overall stability of the shelter.
