Our domes are tried, tested and true
Not all domes are created equal. Domtec domes are built the highest engineering standards of our day. Because of the abuse a dome will take over its 30-50+ year life-cycle it must be designed to the unforeseen stresses and loads that may be placed upon it. Some dome builders use a process of shotcreting that will concentrate too much shotcrete on the dome in a single location at a time. Two major issues result: “shadowing” behind rebar where the bar is not completely embedded and large concrete “fall outs” from too heavy product on the walls or ceiling. This method is still employed by some dome builders and has caused catastrophic failure during construction or filling the dome.
