Industry publication highlights storage domes

Dry Cargo International, a dry cargo and storage industry publication, featured Monolithic Domes in its November 2016 issue. The article featured Monolithic Dome cement storage and touted their efficient storage capabilities.

The magazine has a circulation of more than 6,500 readers in the industry. Additionally, its website receives more than 130,000 hits a month.

Written under the title “Monolithic domes provide efficient cement storage,” the article appears in the Engineering and Equipment section of the magazine. The two page spread also includes photos and drawings of cement storage domes.

Below is a quote from the article:

“Why build a monolithic dome over traditional buildings such as silos or square structures? They can be built in virtually any size while using less of the steel reinforcing needed for traditional structures. Due to this, construction is cheaper and more cost effective, yet these buildings can be built to hold up to thousands of tonnes of cement. Energy efficiency is another benefit to domes, requiring less heating and cooling than traditional buildings due to the layers of insulation.”

“While monolithic domes have been built for homes, schools, churches, and other structures, cement storage is where they really shine. Gary Clark, vice president of sales at Monolithic Constructors Inc., stated the two biggest advantages of a monolithic dome for bulk storage are protection against humidity and storm damage.”

Note: The magazine is published in England, and thus uses British English.
