Add attention grabbing grace and charm to your business. Domes are a standout when surrounded by standard shed style awnings. Make them one color OR each pie section can alternate colors for an even stronger image.
The most common type of dome is a “perfect dome” which is exactly 1/4 of a ball (not including the valance). In a Perfect Dome, the width of the dome is twice the projection and twice the drop. Imagine a ball that is 6′ wide. Cut that ball into quarters (like orange wedges) and each dome would be 6′ wide and 3′ tall and 3′ out. Perfect domes are the most cost effective because the bent ribs in the dome are all symetrical and identical.
Irregular or “Squashed” domes are quarter sections of an oblong watermelon not a round orange. With this type of dome, each rib is different because the drop and projection are are different for each rib. This type is usually used when there is not enough height to install a Perfect Dome.
Domes are not just round any more. Elongated domes have longer convex sections inserted in the middle of a dome to cover wider areas and allow for more signage.
