Oct 3, 2012 10:19 AM
CST Covers, a division of CST Industries Inc, has unveiled OptiDome, a flush batten aluminum geodesic dome design, which may be considered a new paradigm in engineered cover technology.
OptiDome features a Double Web I-Beam for strength and stability, plus optimized patent-pending batten seal technology that eliminates environmental exposure and UV degradation. New hub cover technology removes the need for exterior sealant at the nodes, eliminating routine maintenance and inspection requirements. Featuring a smooth, sleek appearance, OptiDome represents an improvement in overall cover design for structural stability, functionality, and aesthetics.
OptiDome offers an enclosed gasket design that protects from UV and sealant degradation, reduces sealant use, and eliminates ponding.
The new OptiDome design is compliant to Euro-Code, Aluminum Association Design Manual 2010, and International Building Code 2012.
