Three Places Where High-Quality Dome Shelters Can Be Extremely Useful

If there’s one thing that distinguishes Australia from the rest of the world, it’s the fact that it thrives despite being the most arid. Aussies owe it to the country’s abundant physical resources, including iron-ore, gold, natural gas, and coal. Australia is also a major exporter of a wide variety of agricultural products.

With the country’s unstoppable advancements, there’s a steady need for dome shelter construction in various industries that contribute to the economy. Here are three common places where dome shelters can be very useful.

Mining Site

A mining site is an organized community with workers and machines working together in harmony. If either of them fails, the entire operation can be compromised. Read more from this blog:

The Different Functions of a Container Shed in a Plant or Mining Site

Industrial plants and mining sites require roofed structures to support a wide range of onsite activities. Considering that operations in these places may entail constant relocation of facilities, owners and builders are looking for an option that is easy to build and dismantle. This has led them to the container domes, a structure made of metal frames and sheets put together using nuts and bolts.

Unlike concrete structures, container domes are very easy to install, since they don’t require complex masonry work and a significant curing time. The components can simply be delivered to the site premade and installed. The entire process can take just one day to finish depending on the size and number of the dome to be put up.

Shelter and Storage: Container Dome Features You Need to Know About

The success of a business, or any endeavor for that matter, mainly depends on the distribution of resources and the way such resources are maximised and maintained. This is why big businesses, particularly major industries including agriculture, mining, construction, and aviation have to invest in solutions and systems to protect their assets. So when it comes to protecting their heavy machinery, specialised equipment, supplies, vehicles and even employees, industrial companies count on high-quality container dome shelters to do the job.

Container domes, also known as igloo shelters, from established companies like Container Domes Australia can be customised to meet the specific needs of businesses—big or small. Read more from this blog:

Protect Workers from Extreme Heat this Summer with Container Domes

Australian summers are hot, and if the heat gets too extreme, your people may suffer. According to an ABC news article, heat has killed more Australians than all other natural hazards combined. Companies with workers who work outdoors need to ensure the protection of their workers from the elements, and one of the most effective ways to do so is to provide them with onsite container domes. Whether working on a project temporarily or from start to finish, container domes can be necessary for your people. Here’s why:

Australian summer temperatures can reach 50 degrees Celsius

In the middle of summer where temperature can reach 50 degrees Celsius, the onset of dehydration among workers poses a definite risk. Read more from this blog:

How Using Dome Shelter can Help Solve the Problem of On-Farm Storage

In as little as 10 years, grain storage in the east of Australia is expected to grow by as much as 50 percent on farm. While this is good news, it does pose some logistical issues for the farm owners. Unless they prepare a solution for it, they may end up handling more grains than they could every really deal with.

Handling Grains

What’s most important in handling agricultural yields, such as grains, is to ensure that they are kept dry and stored well away from the scorching heat of the sun. Put them on the ground and soil moisture can make its way to the grains inside the sack, thereby compromising its quality. Leave it under the heat of the sun and it’s bound to deteriorate faster, too. Read more on this article:

Installing the Container Shelters that Can Meet Your Mine Site Needs

A mining site, no matter the type, usually consists of a range of facilities to support various operational needs. There should a place where laboratory works can be safely done, a wide area for storing machinery, and sleeping quarters for stay-in workers. These facilities, however, must be designed to be temporary structures only, considering the likelihood of immediate need for relocation or change in the site’s infrastructure.

You will rarely find mining sites that have fixed buildings stood on them. Most have container shelters, temporary facilities that are made up of well-assembled metal frames and sheets. The frame and bracing of a high-quality container shelter are usually made from tough metals, such as galvanized steel, while the walls and roof are made from a special fabric cover designed to reduce heat and cool.

Invest in a Container Dome to Store Agricultural Chemicals Properly

It’s not surprising to see farms using agricultural chemicals, such as solvents, fuels, herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides, among many others. These chemicals are actually beneficial in maintaining the health of crops and are vital in the production of high-quality produce.

The use of chemicals in farms, though commonplace, pose health risks to farmers. Both direct and indirect exposure to these vehicles can lead to a variety of health effects, including headaches, burns, and even nervous system disorders. Farm owners have the responsibility to ensure that their farmers won’t suffer from these adverse effects, and should consider the use of a container dome as a storage area for chemicals.

The Benefits of Relocatable Site Shelter for Industrial Applications

Various industries have been using container domes for different purposes, mainly to provide an alternative to erecting traditional structures in faraway locations, often with inhospitable conditions. Typically, these shelters are used to provide temporary bunk camps or work housing, mobile offices and clinics, storage for equipment, raw materials, or heavy machinery, and temporary construction sites. When a project is over, the shelters can be disassembled and stored or transported to the next location.

The benefits that a relocatable site shelter provides are many and varied compared to those offered by more permanent structures. Using a relocatable shelter that is easy to assemble and disassemble does not equate to using flimsy materials; on the contrary, these shelters are made to withstand strong winds and sweltering heat to protect their contents.
