ASATI proven patented bias-cable net dome provides the structural rigidity for A CATEGORY 4 HURRICANE 140 mph wind load. The total interior of this huge dome is climate controlled by the forced air-conditioned inflation systems with automatic controls for maintaining desired 65-degree interior temperature when outside temperatures are at 100 degrees. The structure is made of 2 layers of Dupont coated structural fabric reducing the cost of cooling the facility in half. This special highly translucent stay clean coating keeps the fabric envelope white for providing over 1,200-foot candles of a natural outdoor lighting to the interior during the daytime hours without need of turning on expensive artificial lighting.
