DOME SHAPED HOUSING STRUCTURE WITH FRP PANELS
THAT CAN BE BUILT IN LESS THAN A DAY,
WITH SIGNIFICANTLY LOW COSTS,
BUT NEVERTHELESS LASTS FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS.
DOME STRUCTURE PERFORMANCE
Resistance of nature disaster (Hurricane, earthquake, flood, snowstorm, tornado)
'geoDOME’ is immensely strong and stable.
The Streamlined dome shape can withstand powerful external pressure, such as hurricane wind, snow load and earthquake (temperature resistance : -70C to 120C).
High impact resistance
'geoDOME’ is high impact resistance (8000psi), it is useful and protects the inmates in natural decease, like floods, tornadoes when uprooted trees, pebbles, debris or any other thing hit the ‘geoDOME’ surface due to the dome shape.
High structural load capacity
‘geoDOME’ is super-efficient for material usage. The frame work, and interlocking system of GRP panels, produce, lightness, strongest, free-span self-supporting structure.
(weight load capacity of 4,000kg)
Low heating and cooling cost
'geoDOME’ structures are extremely energy-efficient. Air circulates freely in a dome without obstruction or ceiling level heat build-up. The ideal energy flow shape means that geoDOME uses 30 - 50% less energy to heat and cool than conventional home.
There is also a third less exposed surface area to heat and cool than a conventional box structure, which increases efficiency again.
FRP PANEL PERFORMANCE
'geoDOME’ is very easy to build, with many identical parts, and because the basic shell is very light, they can be prefabricated and erected very quickly without any specialized equipment. It generally takes four people 4 – 8 hours to erect ‘geoDOME’ and 4 – 8 hours to sprayed insulation material at the inside wall.
Portability and re-fabricate
'geoDOME’ panels are bolted together and anchored to a concrete or wood deck foundation. Structure can be dismantled within 3 – 4 hours, and no loss is involved in erecting and dismantling. 'So do it as many times you want'
‘geoDOME’ panels are made of fire retardant FRP materials
'geoDOME’ fiberglass panels use to construct the house: require no painting and do not deteriorate from weather, rot. insect infestation. Easy to repair if ever damaged. Requires washing with clean water for maintaining its beauty. And gelcoat for the geoDOME is bonded into the surface. During the molding process thus assuring durability and virtually no surface maintenance.
Resistance of sunlight (UV protect)
The use of UV (ultra violet) ray substance on iso-type gel coat prevents cracking and change of color with an life span.
Water and moisture resistance
‘geoDOME’ structure is completely sealed from the air and water. The seam of panel interlocking are sealed with a silicon sealant.
Resistance of chemicals
(especially salt and acid )
No deterioration, mildew, rot, rust, corrosion
INTERIOR INSULATION MATERIAL PERFORMANCE
Nature favored material
High thermal insulation
Thickness can be adjusted depending on the needs
Fiberglass plastics: 0.3 W/mc
Plaster: 0.35 W/mc
Urethane spray: 0.02 W/mc
Steel: 52 W/mc
Concrete: 2 W/mc
Provide for effective steam permeability
Sound absorption effort: 70~80%
Plastered of sprayed in the job-site, layers of up to 3-4cm, can be extended in a single operation.
Finished and reconfigurable interior material
The product can also be applied as a dressing for interiors, in substitution of plaster.
Cabling and some plumbing can be invisibly installed in the insulation material.
