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 Stakes:
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.

Sleeve 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 these anchors.

Wood Anchors:
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.
