The Häring Ensphere dome concept and Saldome salt storage facility
Ensphere is a radical departure from traditional structural systems. It is based on the simple concept that any rigid, double curvature dome can be supported directly on the ground, to rise freely over all internal structures and across the expanse of space to be enclosed. Glulam dome structures are built, for example, to store bulk goods. Their design and architecture draw inspiration from nature and are perfected by subtle engineering. The Häring Ensphere dome concept makes it possible to cover even large areas with diameters of more than 120 metres efficiently and inexpensively using the sustainable raw material wood. The dome system provides a unique solution to the bulk storage industry. Besides the beautiful design of the structure, the dome system storage meets the demands of the industry offering a potential free span from 80m up to about 200m. Customers profit from highest volume per-square-meer ratio, optimised logistics and minimum maintenance requirements.
