Air supported structures deliver on cost and sustainability

Air supported structures deliver on cost and sustainability
October 16, 2013

A new type of structure suitable for a range of sport and entertainment facilities is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

Developed in Canada by the Farley Group, the Air55 dome is an air supported structure that can be constructed and used at much lower cost than conventional buildings. Using innovative engineering, state-of-the-art fabrics and money saving electrical and mechanical equipment, the structures deliver a long life span and low running costs.

Recognising the need for affordable sport venues in Australia and New Zealand, Air55 are the exclusive distributors for the Farley Group's air supported structures in Australia and New Zealand.

The Farley Group has a proud tradition in the design, sales, manufacturing, installation and servicing of air-supported structures.

Founder and Chairman Ralph Farley brought the concept to North America from Sweden over 35 years ago where, in the rigorous and unpredictable Canadian climate, he saw a market for these huge, protective 'bubbles'.

Since 1970, Ralph Farley and his associates have contributed to the manufacture and sale of well over 700 air supported structures throughout the world.

With the structures being suitable for tennis, basketball, football, Futsal, netball, swimming, golf and multi-sport uses, as well as a range of industrial applications.

Air 55 also provide a 20-year warranty for the the membrane fabric and after its lifespan it can be recycled no other building type creates so little landfill during construction and the at the end of its life cycle.
