Air Domes from Rocklyn Sports are a cost-effective and flexible means of covering outdoor sporting areas permanently, or during the winter months.
The structure comprises 2 or 3 ‘skins’ held in place by a steel cable net which is anchored at multiple points around the perimeter. The skins and structural cable-net assembly are then inflated by the introduction of positive air pressure, provided by powerful blower units and managed by a central control system.
Domes can include optional items such as heaters, insulation, back-up generators and specialised lighting controls.
Previous installations include CIYMS Tennis Club and Windsor Lawn Tennis Club, both in Belfast, and Ellesmere College Tennis Centre.
The domes can also be used for many other sports including football, basketball, swimming pools, golf ranges, indoor hockey and beach volleyball.
Rocklyn provides a full service including survey, design, groundworks, dome installation and maintenance.
