An air dome--also commonly referred to as a tennis bubble, sports dome, soccer dome, etc.--is a building formed from one or more layers of fabric. Air blowers continuously pump air into the structure, creating the necessary air pressure that allows the fabric envelope to stay inflated. Cooling or heating HVAC units can also be used to adjust air temperature. Domes can be engineered to withstand up to 150 mph wind loads and up to 50 psf snow loads.
Broadwell's two air dome manufacturing facilities are located on our 360,000 sqf manufacturing park. Our engineering team is licensed in all 50 United States and 42 countries, and they design our domes using highly sophisticated German engineering software. Domes are fabricated using the most state-of-the-art, USA-made RF welding machines available.
