Pier-Tech Walk In Dome Observatories, and Add On Dome Observatories are fabricated in our Bartlett, IL facility. All of our dome observatories use Galvalume as a standard material. Galvalume is a steel sheet that is coated with an aluminum-zinc material, making it corrosion resistant.

Pier-Tech Inc. is the only dome manufacturer in the world to offer a metal dome in 31 different colors. Our standard color is Satin Finish Galvalume, which is a silvery color that is very pleasing to the eye. See our color chart for the other available colors. We also offer our dome observatories in a Stainless Steel version for superior corrosion resistance.
