Ground Mounted Fabric Dome Shelters Used at an Industrial Company

Quick to install and suited to a huge range of uses! Ground Mounted Dome shelters are a versatile and cost-effective shelter solution for companies within multiple industries.

Ground mounted fabric dome shelters are an excellent way to protect your assets from the elements. Whatever your need, these shelters provide a cost-effective and durable solution for protecting your valuable assets.

The Design Of Ground Mounted Fabric Shelters

Allshelter designs its fabric domes to offer versatile and weather-resistant shelter, using high-quality Australian-made steel and high-density polyethylene fabric.

The unique design of ground mounted fabric dome shelters allows for a more efficient use of materials, reducing costs and providing a more environmentally friendly option compared to traditional building structures. The curved profile of these shelters enables the structure to distribute extrinsic forces across the shelter evenly. Additionally, their fabric panels allow for natural light to enter the structure, reducing the need for artificial lighting and lowering energy costs.

Similar to other fabric shelters such as container and post-mounted dome shelters, ground mounted fabric shelters offer a clear span design. This enables an open-plan area, maximising the covered space, whether for workshops or storage.

What Makes Ground-Mounted Shelters The Perfect Shelter Solution?

When it comes to protecting your assets, you want to ensure you make the right choice for your shelter needs. Ground-mounted fabric shelters have many benefits including:

  1. Easy to Install – Delivered in a handy kit form with step-by-step instructions, they are easy to put up and need no special team or skills, although professional installation is also offered.
  2. Suitable for Uneven Ground – Don’t need a dead-level site, which saves time and money on excavation and earthwork.
  3. Minimal Foundations – Directly mounted to the ground with anchors means concrete foundations and large excavations aren’t needed in most situations.
  4. Relocatable & Cost-Effective – A cost-effective solution for machinery storage, workshops, or warehousing and can easily be moved to another project or location as needed.
  5. Protection from the Elements – The cover goes all the way to the ground, providing exceptional protection to equipment and people from sun, rain and wind, while the fabric lets in excellent natural light.
  6. Room to Work – Clear-span design eliminates the need for interior columns, which provides space for machinery to work and maximises storage area.

The Uses for Ground-Mounted Fabric Shelters

Highly versatile, ground-mounted dome shelters find utility across a wide range of applications. Some of the most common applications for these structures include:

  1. Vehicle & Machinery Storage: Ground-mounted dome shelters are often used for storage of equipment, materials, and supplies. Customisable for specific needs, our storage solutions offer weather resistance and security for your assets.
  2. Bulk Goods Warehouse & Stockpiling: With the cover going right to the ground, ground-mounted dome shelters allow for separation between materials. This can create large areas for storage while protecting them from weather conditions such as rain.
  3. Laydown Areas: The protection of an organisation’s equipment and/or supplies, is a top priority. Ground-mounted fabric dome shelters that are weather-proof provide an area that is safe for the storage of equipment and supplies whether it is for a temporary time or more semi-permanent.

Ground-mounted fabric dome shelters provide a durable shelter solution when it comes to protecting machinery or bulk materials, whether your need is only temporary or more as a semi-permanent solution.

How do ground mounted dome shelters compare in terms of cost and durability to other shelter options?

Ground-mounted dome shelters are generally more cost-effective compared to other shelter options such as container-mounted and post-mounted shelters. This is partially due to them mounting directly to the ground.

In terms of cost, ground mounted dome shelters are usually more cost-effective than traditional steel-clad buildings. Their unique design allows for a more efficient use of materials, reducing costs, and a quicker installation reducing the downtime. Additionally, these structures often have a modular design, allowing for expansion or contraction as needed. Therefore, they provide a more flexible and cost-effective option when you require more or less pace.

In terms of durability, ground-mounted dome shelters endure various weather conditions, including sun, wind, and rain. They can be engineered for snow-loading and cyclone-rated areas. These structures typically feature robust steel frames and resilient high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fabric, providing increased resistance to tearing and UV radiation. This renders them a more durable option than structures using PVC fabric, like tents and more affordable alternatives, which typically consist of lightweight materials lacking the same resistance to harsh weather conditions.

Furthermore, although designed to be temporary quality ground mounted dome shelters are engineered to be permanent and have a 50-year design life. They require minimal maintenance, which can further reduce their lifetime costs.

Overall, ground mounted dome shelters provide a cost-effective and durable option for a wide range of applications. They offer an efficient use of materials, withstand harsh weather conditions, and require minimal maintenance. This makes them a popular choice for many users.
