Air Supported Structures
Armada-Vingida manufactures diversified sorts of air structures with clearspan widths up to 90m. These inflatable structures are being used for various purposes.The main advantage of inflatable buildings or air inflated structures in comparison to traditional solutions is our low prices and fast delivery terms, which we are able to provide because they do not require steel or wooden supporting construction and they are easily dismantled without help from specialists, e.g. for summer season or other reasons.
- Air Domes or Air Buildings such as tennis courts, covered pools, golf courses, ice arenas, football fields and other Temporary Sports
- Facilities.Permanent and Temporary Storage of bulk goods and other supplies, or Inflatable Shelters
- Low price
- No frames or supported columns inside of the structure, even in the case of large-scale overall dimensions of the structure.
- Energy-saving, as the awning of the whole structure is produced from light translucent PVC material.
- Able to be set-up or dismantled in a very short period of time for the summer season or other reasons.
- Easy to repair in case of technical damages to the PVC material
Inflatable structures or air structures are supported by blowing air inside the structure, which is reflected in their name. It could seem that this would be uncomfortable for visitors to be inside of the structure; however air-pressure changes inside the structure are very minimal and not more than natural barometrical fluctuations.
Types of Air Inflatable Structures
There are a few main types of Air Domes, i.e. high and low profile (referring to the height of the structure) structures.
- High-profile constructions are mostly used when the structure is to be run temporarily or periodically on a 'zero' ground base.
- Low-profile constructions are used for large-scale overall dimension structures, such as stadiums, large sports complexes, etc. Also they are most often built on buildings themselves, but not on a 'zero' base level. Cross cables hold the roof down.
Dimensions of air supported structures can vary, depending on the purpose of the structure as well as the customer's requirements. For example, when covering tennis courts, the dimensions of the structure will depend on the number of the courts to be covered. e.g.:
One tennis court - 36 x 18 m
Two tennis courts - 36 x 36 m
Three tennis courts - 36 x 54 m
Four tennis courts - 36 x 72 m
The structure’s awning is calculated by estimating snow and wind loads according to local building regulations. The material is welded and installed as a one-piece cover, securing an absolute impermeability of the structure. The cover is manufactured from flame retardant (DIN4102B1/M2 standard), light translucent material, both sides of which are covered by an acrylic layer. It is possible to produce the structure from blackout (light-proof) material of your chosen color. Special fastening units, produced from galvanized steel, arrange connecting structure to the ground.
In order to insulate the structure, minimize condensation, and improve acoustic properties, an air-gap can be made by fitting an additional layer of PVC material from the inside of an air supported structure.
For the main entrances to the structure revolving doors are used. Direct-emergency exits can also be installed.
