Monolithic Dome Airform and Fabric Product Manufacturing
Monolithic Airform Manufacturing has built hundreds of Monolithic Dome Airforms for domes in all 50 states and dozens of countries—from the Arctic to the tropics.
We combine modern patterning, cutting and fabric welding technologies with creative and intelligent design. We find real-world solutions to achieve complex architectural ideas and site requirements. In building more Monolithic Dome Airforms than any other company — and because of ongoing testing and research —we have continually improved the quality of Monolithic Airforms and innovated new methods for their fabrication. An example of this is the new Transverse Airform, developed here at the Monolithic Research and Industrial Park in Italy, Texas.
We construct a wide variety of fabric structures.
We have always made more than just Monolithic Dome Airforms in our very busy caterpillar-shaped manufacturing plant. We have built hundreds of methane digester covers, condensate ceilings, compost covers, tension structures, grain covers, athletic tents and more.
In fact, Monolithic can design and construct virtually any fabric form. Event planners, playground and park designers, athletic directors, fracking companies, wastewater treatment plants, agricultural research and development organizations and many more groups and people use architectural textiles. We can help any of these groups achieve their goals. We partner with customers to develop prototypes or go directly to mass-producing custom fabric forms. We provide innovation and creativity — along with cutting-edge tech — in an approachable and dependable way.
We are based in Texas — An advantage to the customer.
Instead of outsourcing to another country overseas to have a custom textile product constructed, our manufacturing plant is located right here in Italy, Texas.
We have the experience and cutting-edge textile manufacturing tools.
Our 14,000 square foot plant houses a state-of-the-art, laser-guided, 200-foot long RF welder that heats and seals fabric pieces together using high-frequency electromagnetic energy.
Mike and Dave South have 50 years’ worth of combined experience pioneering some of the world’s most complicated fabric form architecture. Yet, we are a small enough company to give each one of our customers our full attention. We work best when our customers are our partners — working toward their project’s success.
Examples of fabric forms we design and manufacture:
- Condensate ceilings for water towers
- Specialty tents for any event or permanent structure
- Grain covers
- Custom air structures for tennis tournaments or temporary indoor arenas
- Fabric water tanks
- Compost covers
- Airformed Culverts
- Airformed concrete tunnels and pipes
- High quality, heavy-duty custom equipment tarps and everything else
