ADVANTAGE OF A WDI INTERNATIONAL HOME :
  LOW INITIAL COST
  QUICK ASSEMBLY TIME (takes 4 people app. 12 hrs. to erect 32 ft. dome)
  VIRTUALLY NO MAINTENANCE REQUIRED (no painting, no corrosion, etc.)
  STRENGTH AND DURABILITY (aero-dynamic shape makes it virtually wind-proof --
  can withstand app. 144 mph winds and 18' tidal waves)
  Snow slides off sides, but can endure up to 8,000 lb.. per sq. in. if
  necessary.
  Seams are protected with silicone sealant with an estimated. life span of
  50-75 years.
  ENERGY EFFICIENT (the R-rating of the DOME Home exceeds R-30)
  The double fiberglass shell with urethane form installation, double insulated
  Lexan windows, and 1/3 less outside surface (than a conventional building adds
  30% energy saving) make it avery highly energy efficient dome.
  RESISTANT TO FLAME, FLOOD, EARTHQUAKES, HURRICANES, ANDTERMITES (termites
  cannot eat fiberglass) The panels are bolted together and anchored to a
  concrete foundation.

DOME HOUSE ON NAVARRE BEACH, FLORIDA
� DIRECT HIT FROM HURRICANE OPAL � 1995
� WITHSTOOD 144 MPH WINDS, 18 FOOT
TIDAL WAVE STORM SURGE� NO DAMAGE!
FEMA TESTING
�The Wind Science and Engineering Division of Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas
successfully tested our composite
dome panels to hurricane shelter standards in
May, 2006.
Testing was consistent with the impact guidelines
of the Florida Building Code, ASTM 1886E/1996E and FEMA 320 and FEMA 361.
We also had a specially built panel successfully pass the tornado shelter standard.
This test consists of 3 separate shots of a 15 lb. 2 x 4, fired at a speed of 100 MPH.
The Dome structures have been exposed to three hurricanes in Florida and numerous
tornados. In all cases the damage was minimal and only minor inconvenience
to the home owner. Wind testing was done at the INEEL
wind storm test facility. The structural test was also conducted by Dr.
Avent of Mississippi State University. Fire Retardant coating is applied to
all WDI dome interior structures. This coating gives the structure a
Class A Rating.�
Integral fire barrier incorporated in
each panel
Dome House in Ahmedabad, India
survived Bhuj earthquake in 2001. Many surrounding houses were
damaged.
�Simply washing the shell with bleach and water is all the maintenance
that is required for normal installations.
�Easy composite repair should a panel ever become damaged.
Composite panels are hurricane shelter approved.
Composite homes have been standing for 30 years.
�Approved by U.S.A. HUD (Housing and Urban Development Agency),
and by
�Alabama Manufactured Housing Association
�Approved by Government of India � Directorate General of Supplies and
Disposals � Directorate of Quality DGS&D/REGN/AHM/S -63/2004/D �

�Acosta Engineering, of El Paso, Texas conducted a structural analysis of a Composite
Building System Dome house in May, 2009. The International Building
Code (IBC) requirements were considered in the analysis. The Composite Fiber Glass Dome system meets the requirements
of the International Building Code (IBC).

 
APRIL, 2004 � EXECUTIVE ENGINEER K.S. SHAH, ROAD & BUILDINGS DIVISION, PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT, STATE GOVERNMENT OF GUJARAT, INDIA STATED: THE AVERAGE ANNUAL COST OF MAINTENANCE FOR EXISTING CONVENTIONAL BUILDINGS IN GUJARAT IS 5% PER ANNUM.
THERE IS NO MAINTENANCE REQUIRED FOR A DOME STRUCTURE OTHER THAN OCCASIONAL WASHING.
CONSEQUENTLY, ON MAINTENANCE SAVINGS ALONE, YOUR SAVINGS OVER A 5-YEAR PERIOD WILL BE 25% , AND OVER A 20-YEAR PERIOD WILL BE 100%.
THE SHAPE OF THE DOME STRUCTURE WITH ITS LOW SURFACE AREA TO VOLUME RATION AUTOMATICALLY REDUCES BY 30% THE AMOUNT OF CUBIC METERS NECESSARY TO BE HEATED OR COOLED.  THE POLYURETHANE FOAM USED IN THE DOME HAS THE HIGHEST INSULATIVE VALUE IN USE IN BUILDING CONSTRUCTION TODAY.  BECAUSE OF THE FOAM�S PLACEMENT WITHIN THE WALLS, THE EXTREME INSULATING PROPERTIES OF THE DOME (R-28+ RATING BY U.S. LABORATORY) MAKES IT INCREDIBLY ENERGY EFFICIENT -  50% - 70% SAVINGS OVER CONVENTIONAL STRUCTURES AS TESTED IN U.S.A.
NO OTHER STRUCTURE ON THE MARKET TODAY CAN MAKE THAT CLAIM.
