Inflatable dome is a new type of building made of air dome materials, which has been widely used in many fields such as industry, agriculture, commerce and environmental protection. So what is the difference between it and the traditional buildings we usually see?

1. Different building materials

Inflatable air dome buildings are different from the building materials of ordinary buildings. Traditional buildings are built with bricks, tiles, concrete, wood or other building materials, while air dome buildings use the sixth building material-fabric material as the main building material.

2. Different support methods

Traditional buildings are mainly supported by steel beams and columns, while inflatable air dome buildings are mainly supported by air.

3. Different construction periods

Building a space of the same size, inflatable air dome buildings are much faster than traditional buildings. For example, building a 2,000-square-meter inflatable air dome stadium can generally be completed in about 2 months, while traditional buildings take half a year. Therefore, the inflatable air dome building greatly reduces the construction cycle.
