The OptiDome is specifically designed to be fully compliant with AWWA, Eurocode and the latest torsional buckling requirements adopted by the Aluminum Design Manual (ADM), and the International Building Code.
The strengthened double web I-beam design along with the flush batten provide unmatched value designed to improve the operational performance of the dome in any application. After 15 successful installations across all major markets including, Water, Wastewater, Oil, Gas and Architectural, CST announces the standardization of the OptiDome design across all municipal projects. CST manufactures the OptiDome exclusively in the U.S. with manufacturing facilities based out of Conroe, Texas and Rincon, Georgia.

We’ve modified and optimized several components to create a premier standard design that is simple to install, allows for streamlined fabrication and that exceeds the performance that our customers have grown to expect,” exclaimed John Delaney, VP of CST Covers, Inc.
