All of our anchors are provided to ensure wind resistance over 75 mph.

 Be sure to specify anchor surface when ordering your dome!


  • Screw Rod anchors  suitable for soil, sand or asphalt.
        These anchors vary from 17 in. to 47 in. deep with "spoons" measuring between 4 & 6 in. across.  Pull out ratings are between 450 lb. - 4,200 lb. each depending upon soil conditions.
  • Steel Stake anchors are designed and tested to pull out ratings of 4,200 lb. in asphalt pads.  A pilot hole and sledge hammer is necessary to drive these anchors.
  • Sleeve anchors are designed for extreme loads when set in cement.  A drill with a masonry bit will be necessary to install these anchors.
  • Wooden anchor systems are available for dock covers or wood mounted structures.  The wooden sub structure must be securely anchored to the ground!
