Domeshells Air-Forms for Building Dome Structures
Domeshells manufactures air-forms to order.
We use a high quality, reinforced PVC fabric.
Reinforced PVC fabric comes in different thickness (weight).
For air-forms up to 7.0m in diameter we use approximately 470 gms fabric increasing in weight as the diameter size increases.
Some systems leave the air-form over the shell for waterproofing in which case the UV properties of the air form need to be the best possible. If you intend to remove the air-form and use an alternative waterproofing system then-n we use a lower grade PVC.
Air Form Cost Table
For example a 3.0m diameter air-form will have a vertical section below the hemisphere of either 900mm or 1200mm depending on the desired height. All air-forms include an external flap system for attaching and sealing to an air-lock.
Almost any size or shape of air-form can be manufactured to order – please inquire

Domeshells uses air forms for it’s original and patented system of fabricating domes using “glass fiber reinforced concrete’ (GRC) structural skins either side of a polyurethane foam core. Domeshells system does NOT leave the airform in place for water proofing. The reason is that it is not needed. In our experience for residential sized dome shells, up to about 10 m diameter, the render mix formulation is adequately waterproof. In addition all the domes we have constructed this way have an application of a high quality water proofing system to both add color and insurance against water penetration.
