In2Structures launches new SupaDome and AliDome venues

In2Structures, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, has launched two new dome structures. The 36m-wide SupaDome (SP) and the more intimately proportioned 18m-wide AliDome are designed to augment either end of In2Structures’ current range of MaxiDome and Flat Truss Dome portable structures.

A fully functional SupaDome was built for the launch. The new In2Structures flagship product retains the shape of the MaxiDome, but with an increased width and height. The standard SP Dome width is an elegant 36m-wide (external dimension) curve, with a variable length that can be added via strong modular 6m-long sections (bays). Each section is constructed from robust 800 x 300 mm trussing and has a weight loading capacity of 3 tonnes – making the SupaDome a highly dynamic technical space for flying scenic elements and lighting, sound and video equipment.

The demonstration SupaDome was built with six bays plus two Dome ends, giving an internal size of nearly 2,000m², measuring 68.7m long by 32.7m wide, with headroom of 16.23m. A Mercedes Vito was suspended from two of the SupaDome arches. On the opposite Dome end, a mezzanine level lounge area with a mass of 5 tons was suspended on six points. It could accommodate up to 60 people, resulting in an additional dynamic load of 6 tonnes.

In2Structures has invested in heavy-duty Tri Keder extrusion to suit the wide spans and girder arrangements of the SP Dome, and the introduction of a fork-and-pin system speeds up build times, allowing a 3,200m² SP Dome to be constructed in the same timeframe as a 2,100m² MaxiDome.

The AliDome is made from aluminium extrusions and works on the same construction principles as the larger Dome. The current Ali Dome size is 18m wide with a height of 8.5m to its roof apex. Build time is 3-4 hours (dependent on the base). An 18m-diameter AliDome was built inside the SupaDome for the launch, featuring a variety of different skins, including a printed Johannesburg skyline combined with sky projections and transparent ‘window skins’. The AliDome seats just over 100 sitting for dinner or cocktail format, 200 as a mini-cinema, or 250 standing.
