OptiDome All-Aluminum Flush Batten Dome Roof

Aquastore Canada East is proud to design and build CST’s OptiDome All-Aluminum domes. OptiDome is a technologically advanced, sleek, flush batten aluminum dome that delivers superior stability, functionality and aesthetics.

Combining premium features and incorporating the engineering experience, OptiDome sets a new standard in engineered aluminum cover technology.  The new design features of OptiDome include:

  • Flush Batten Design 
  • Protection from UV and Sealant Degradation
  • Gasketed Stainless Steel Fasteners
  • Eliminates Ponding
  • Easy to Install 
  • Long Lasting
  • Low Maintenance
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • OptiDome’s design complies with torsional buckling requirements which have been adopted by Eurocode, 2010 Aluminum Design Manual and International Building Code 2012.  The Double Web I-Beam, combined with aluminum’s excellent strength-to-weight ratio, provides reliable performance under the most stringent environmental conditions including heavy snow loads and high wind speeds.

OptiDome is designed to meet the latest design codes including Eurocode, Aluminum Association’s 2010 Aluminum Design Manual, IBC 2012, AWWA D108 and API 650G.

Every OptiDome aluminum cover is custom designed to meet the specific requirements of each project and be engineered for any snow, wind or suspended load capacity, as well as span-to-rise-ratio.  With the ability to cover spans of 1,000 feet or more, OptiDome offers a wide range of applications without unsightly beams, girders or columns.

The unique properties of OptiDome make it far superior to other materials and alloys used for covers due to its:

  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Low Lifetime Maintenance Cost
  • Clear-Span Capability
  • Fast & Low-Cost Construction
  • Design Flexibility
  • Aluminum is a “Green Material”

At the core of OptiDome is its superior batten seal technology. This system increases water shedding and eliminates ponding, even on a low profile design, while providing a water-tight cover solution.  Featuring an enclosed gasket design, the batten protects against ultra-violet exposure and sealant degradation. Since battens are flush with dome panels, it eliminates ponding. They are easy to install and require less sealant than typical geodesic domes.
