Metal Domes and Acoustics
Decorative metal domes enhance the acoustics of a structure. This is why the metal dome is commonly used in concert halls, theatres and cathedrals. Variations in the custom designed dome determine how the sound is distributed. The sound waves gravitate to the focal point of the room and bounce along the way, preserving the original sound quality.
Custom Metal Domes and Space
Custom metal domes help a builder or architect enclose a space within a number of design constraints. Fewer building materials are required to create the customized metal dome. The customized roofing solution requires far less space than other expansion projects. Improved utilization of space benefits the consumer by creating a more cost-effective expansion alternative.
Decorative Metal Domes and Installation
Metal domes are characterized by their easy installation. The curved paneling is easy to install, requiring very little time to assemble. Incredibly light in weight, the decorative metal dome offers a streamlined installation process, reducing the amount of labor and time required to complete the project.
Eco-friendly Metal Domes and Energy Consumption
Metal custom domes are helpful in reducing energy consumption for a structure by as much as 50 percent in some cases. As it improves air circulation for a building, the heating and cooling costs for a building are better controlled. The reduction in time required to heat and cool the building coupled with the eco-friendly building products used in the dome design contribute to lower energy costs. Solar panels can line the exterior of the metal domes, which reduces the carbon footprint for the building.
