The Ameri-Dome Factory:
If a close
inspection of the factory itself is any indication of the quality
of our swimming pool enclosures and the craftmanship used to construct them,
all indications would suggest that our product is in actual probability,
the finest on the market.
Nearly 50 years of combined experience lead the management team in
our factory. This team, supported by many individuals (some of which have
worked together with the management team for decades) combine to
provide our customers with proven designs and the finest craftsman ship
available in the entire industry of vinyl fabrication.
It is not unusual for other vinyl manufacturing companies to request
advice from our factory. Leads for the most difficult and unusual projects are
regularly routed by the industry to us. Our hard earned reputation is
your assurance of complete product and service satisfaction.
is custom made. We do not stock units in "standard" sizes. As each one is made to order,
our customers always receive a product which was made
exactly to their
own specifications. It's much easier on you if we adjust the swimming pool dome rather
than forcing you to alter your deck or landscape. This also ensures that the product you
receive was not sitting on a shelf in a sweltering warehouse for who knows how long!
After your order is received, it is placed on the
and produced in the order it was received. The engineering department
uses your specifications to calculate items relating to stress, load, etc. Plans
are then drawn for your particular enclosure. The plans will include the
cutting charts, entry placement, and the prescribed order of assembly for
your individual unit. This process enables us to provide you with an end
product of quality and strength that no other company can match!
All of our products are
manufactured to exacting tolerances
using state of the art equipment. The actual manufacturing area is kept remarkably clean
in to isolate any contaminants from the manufacturing process.
The vinyl from which the domes are made is delivered to our factory
on large rolls. The rolls of vinyl are typically 72" wide and hundreds of feet
factory photos). They and are reduced to the proper widths with the use of a "slitter."
The material is fed through the slitter's razor sharp blades and
then placed on the cutting tables.
Using the plans provided by engineering, the individual sections of the
enclosure are then hand dimensioned to form each panel. While this is occurring,
the cable anchor hem assembly is manufactured in another area of the plant. The panels are
"welded" together to form the walls, ceiling, and corners of the unit. This "welding" process
is completed with the use of "radio frequency" (RF) sealing machines and is more commonly referred
to as "vulcanizing". Using this process eliminates the need of using liquid adhesives which
are not only unsightly, they are unreliable. This "
process" produces an end product that is both attractive and extremely strong in structural integrity.
Certain components areas of the swimming pool dome are stitched.
One of these is the
zipper entry which is sewn onto a polyester reinforced
panel and then attached to the desired area of entry. This stitching
is generally used in areas of unusually high stress.
These methods of construction ensure that your dome will provide
you a maximum lifespan and years of trouble free service.
The Ameri-Dome Anchoring System:
Swimming pool domes have been around for a number of years. Early
models were not fastened to the pool deck. A system of water filled tubes was the primary
method of keeping the dome in place. In areas of severe wind, the unit could "walk" itself
into the pool. Eventually a few cables were added to the water tube system to help keep it
in place. This helped the problem, but was not very reliable as the water tubes would tend
to "grate" on the pool deck causing thin spots in the vinyl and leaks were common. Water
tubes also required a considerable amount of maintenance and the the job of adding and
removing the water/anti-freeze solution in the tubes was not pleasant.
is anchored by a series of removable eyebolts and a continuos loop of vinyl coated steel
cable with a
3000 lb. test rating. The cable is sealed into the hem at the
base of the enclosure.
Anchor sleeves are placed into the pool deck at about 3 foot intervals (see
anchor spacing diagram).
These sleeves are 1/2" in diameter and 1-7/8" long. In the center of each sleeve is a 3/8"
threaded hole which the eyebolts are screwed into.
The cable in the hem goes through the eyebolts and the dome is now ready for inflation.
Note: We have many
different types of anchoring systems
available for surfaces other than pool decks and concrete. It you would like your dome to
be mounted on pavers, grass, ground, wood, or whatever... Give us a call. We have developed
many different anchoring solutions over the years. One of them would most likely work for you.
When the swimming pool dome is taken down, the eyebolts are removed to
clear the deck. The sleeves remain and are flush with the surface of the deck,
leaving no obstacles. We even provide the
to keep debris out of the holes and a Storage bag
that "Breathes" for proper dome storage during the off-season.
How the Ameri-Dome Works:
is classified as an air supported structure. It must be anchored to the deck of the pool
to hold it in place. The air needed to support the swimming pool enclosure is supplied by
a blower which is regulated by a "pressure" switch. This switch turns the blower on when
the dome needs air, and turns it off when the dome achieves optimum pressure.
When the blower is operating, outside air is pumped into the enclosure. An air seal is created
between the pool deck and the hem of the dome with the use of an 18" flap. This flap is "sealed"
on the interior perimeter of the enclosure. The sealing ability is enhanced as the internal
air pressure forces the flap down onto the deck of the pool.
Entry or exit is accomplished through the use of a
zippered entry panel.
If an entry is left open for an extended period of time, excessive air loss will cause the
dome to begin deflation. This process takes a considerable amount of time on an average dome.
