Air Supported Structures

Technical Information

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.


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

Covering material

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.

Inner layer

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.
