Records and Data Storage / NARA Compliant


Smart dome vault - the ultimate protection.

Records and Data Storage / NARA Compliant

Domes outperform conventional storage solutions in three primary ways: rapid construction, structural integrity, and cost and space efficiency. Domes deliver superior insulation, maximum waterproofi¬Āng and a condensation-free environment that is perfect for storing critical data, records, media and digital product inventory.

An example of this dome type is the Smart Dome Vault that ABC Domes completed in 2012 for Certified Records Management (CRM), the leading provider of Information Management services in Florida.

The NARA (National Archives and Records Administration)-Compliant Smart Dome Vault, located in ABC Domes’ Lakeland, Florida complex, is 60 feet tall, with 12,000 square feet of interior space including a floor-to-ceiling metal racking system. The dome is engineered to withstand winds of more than 250 miles per hour, providing protection from Category 5 tornado and hurricane pressures. The Certified Records Management Smart Dome also provides environmentally controlled protection for all forms of critical data and is the safest and most secure vault facility available in the State of Florida.

  • A safe, secure environment housed in a structure built to withstand 250 mph winds.
