Gearhouse In2Structures launches Combi Dome1 May 2011
Gearhouse In2Structures launched its new Combi Dome venue structure at a special event staged at the Country Club Johannesburg in Woodmead, Johannesburg, South Africa.
The two day launch event was attended by over 600 people visiting the new structure – a 6 bay version of the 20 metre wide Combi Dome. The theme of the event was “Your Vision Your View”, emphasising the portability of the Combi Dome and its ability to be set up anywhere with suitable ground conditions.
Combining movability with aesthetics and flexibility, the Combi Dome is the latest In2Structures’ range of steel framed domes and is said to be ideal for all types of events.
The range also includes the larger Maxi and Supa Dome versions. With its 20 metre width, the Combi Dome complements these larger venues which stand at 28 and 36 metres wide respectively.
Length is added or subtracted to the Combi Dome with 4 metre ‘bays’, and different coloured Teflon skins – including transparent and customised – can be supplied as required.
Designed as a ‘compact’ venue, the Combi Dome has a capacity of 600 for banquets and gala dinners, and for conventionally seated conference set ups of up to 1500 delegates, and has a load capacity of 1,500 kgs per arch, which will facilitate a large amount of production equipment. The structure is certified to withstand wind speeds of up to 120 km/hour. It can be built in a variety of shapes and sizes with the option of attachable ‘mini’ domes that can be utilised for miscellaneous working areas like dressing and green rooms, kitchens, foyers or storage spaces.
The Combi Dome can be erected in two or three days with the aid of a small 8 tonne truck crane.
