Clear Span Roof Systems
Aluminum's lightweight characteristics allow for larger clear-span capability than structures utilizing steel, concrete and other materials. Creative design and lightweight components provide for installation in 1/3 of the time it takes to install other cover systems. Less time, labor and equipment requirements combine for a low total cost of installation.
Aluminum's excellent strength-to-weight ratios and creative component design yield covers and structures that cannot be achieved with other materials. Clear Span Roof Systems are used for curved roofs and can be custom designed to develop a broad range of shapes and sizes. The single layer aluminum framework is offered as either an integral glazing system or integral roof and insulation system. Typical building footprint applications include ellipsoidal, oval, rectangular and circular.
The high strength of a clear span structural system is derived from:
• GEOMETRIC CONFIGURATIONS
• CST’S PROPRIETARY MOMENT CARRYING CONNECTION DESIGN
• HIGH STRENGTH ALUMINUM ALLOYS USED FOR MEMBERS AND CONNECTIONS
• CURVATURE - POSITIVE, NEGATIVE, SINGLE OR DOUBLE
High quality prefabricated aluminum components and lightweight aluminum members ensure design success, speed of delivery and ease of construction.
THE ALUMINUM ADVANTAGE
CST is known throughout the world as the premier designer and manufacturer of geodesic domes, structural systems and assocative cladding for architectural and the many storage markets. Where quality, performance and ease of installation are important, architects and engineers around the world trust CST to provide a solution to make their ideas come to life.
Our palette of structural systems and the ability to design utilizing any type of cladding element in the marketplaces allows our products to be used in virtually any application. Exterior structures where corrosion plays a factor in the design drivers mandates a system constructed of non-corrosive aluminum components.
Some typical applications are:
- Dome Roofs
- Canopies and Entryways
- Vertical Glazed Applications
- And many more...
