Copper dome roofs
Over the years, architects have used DeMuth domes made from a variety of materials and colors. The one metal asked for frequently that could not be used was copper. To maintain the structural integrity of the self-supporting dome meant that only very hard, high tensile materials could be used. Copper, being a soft metal, meant that it was not the best choice as a material for the hemispheric dome even though it offered a very attractive patina as it aged and would outlast many other types of materials.
Leading architectural firms in North America, by their strong interest, moved copper dome roofs higher on our agenda. DeMuth sourced suppliers around the world and found a copper strong enough to be used in our self-supporting hemispherical dome roof. We are now able to offer the architectural industry a dome roof in 20 ounce, 1/4 to 1/2 hard, copper material.
If your clients are looking for a unique roof in shape and material, offer them a DeMuth copper hemispherical dome roof!
