Collection: Observa-Dome


With over 50 years of building observatory domes we are constantly striving to build the very best product in the industry. When we place a dome in service at a customers location we expect the exact same thing from our products that our customers do.

SOME KEY ADVANTAGES:

  1. Observa-domes are built to customer specifications and for each individual locations building codes and environment
  2. All exposed surfaces are fabricated from non-corrosive aluminum.  This means they won’t rust or be subject to UV degradation
  3. Observa-Domes seals and flashings are virtually leak proof even in tropical down pours
  4. Our bi-parting shutters can be closed or opened within seconds verses minutes, because seconds matter in protecting equipment
  5. We offer our domes with manual shutters, electric shutters and solar powered shutters complete with a solar panel and generator.
  6. Observa-Dome can also offer factory installed automation or automation ready domes

Structural Integrity

Observa-DOMES are designed to withstand some of the most extreme environmental conditions, found anywhere in the world. Observa-DOME is the only observatory dome manufacturer in the United States able to provide a detailed Structural Analysis bearing the stamp of a registered professional engineer! Our engineers are licensed in many states here in the US.
 
Because of the numerous variations of local zoning & building codes found both here in the US, and around the world, structural loads such as wind, snow, rain, and seismic, can vary significantly depending on location. By knowing these criteria beforehand, we are able to design and fabricate our Observa -DOMES to meet or exceed conditions found anywhere in the world.
 
Our engineers develop a computer structural finite element model using STAADPro software as published by Research Engineers International, of Yorba Linda, CA. This analysis software has the capability of computing a wide range of stresses and forces within the elements, and is able to produce graphical representations showing stress level contours throughout the model.
