|So, be sure to
specify your anchor surface when ordering your Dome!
For all of our Dome Shelter Systems, we offer you
a wide variety of anchor options to suit every type of
surface you have. Below list
the type of anchors used by most common firm ground conditions:
Steel Stake Anchors or Rebar
Suitable for asphalt surfaces - Our steel stake anchors
used in combination of a minimum 4” asphalt cover
on top of compacted soil below will give a pull-out strength
of up to 4300 psf. A pilot hole and sledgehammer is necessary
to drive these anchors.
Suitable for concrete surfaces - These large anchors with
heavy-duty brackets are used to resist extreme loads.
A drill with a masonry bit will be necessary to install
Suitable for wood dock covers or wood mounted structures
- Our hex head wood screw and steel brackets are used.
Please note the wooden sub structures must be securely
anchored to the ground.
Special Anchor Option –
Precast Concrete Block Foundations:
In cases where the ground is incapable or the ground finish
must be preserved, we also offer a raised block wall foundation
option. In addition, these block walls can be used as
a collision barrier for moving equipment functioning within
the shelter, as well as providing extra height clearance
for all your storage needs. Please contact our sales representatives
for further details.
