Project: Salt Dome
Customer: Domeuropa UK
Client: Dorchester County Council
Items: 8no 160 x 600mm Glulam Arches
Project Completion: Winter 2015
NORclad are able to offer a lot more than cladding to a project, for this project a number of Spruce laminated arches were required. Weighing over 600kg each, and with a span of 12.18m the Spruce arches are ideal for a salt dome.
Timber is a great material to use for salt domes as the salt does not corrode away as it would on steel.
The Spruce Laminated beams were supplied to site with steel base plates already installed at the foot, with a single Pin and Socket fixing to connect the top of the beams to create the arch.
