What ELSE Can We Do With Greenhouse Dome

Customized Greenhouse Dome Kits

The installation of a top ventilation hatch or a bottom zipper hatch, in combination with the optimal air circulation patterns of a dome, will make your dome home cozy and comfortable at minimal expense. For example, you can equip your living dome with an optional stove vent flashing and cap for wood stove installation; or you can order screen “roll up” windows so that you can let light and fresh air in. The amount of the ventilation hatches depends on dome sizes.

Depending on your desires, it’s also possible to set the automated ventilation system (heating or cooling) for your tiny dome home. Just let us know and we’ll make it for you.

When you’re setting up your geodesic dome tent and living in it anywhere where there’s seasonal climate change, the first priority is insulation. You should take into account how to stay warm/cool.

Apart from the additional ventilation for stoves and exhaust fans, we provide insulative liner to achieve a good level of temperature control.

It is waterproof, UV blocking, fire retardant, mold resistant and easy to keep clean. Having simple installment, it can quickly create a well-ventilated dome house space with optimal temperature.

Why SHELTER Geodesic Greenhouse Dome?

Geodesic Garden Dome - Garden Igloo - Shelter Dome 1

Energy Effect

Due to its spherical structure, it can deliver effective air movement inside the geodesic greenhouse dome. Thus it heats up quickly and retains heat very well at the low costs. The temperature inside the dome tent is constant, providing comfort for people or warmth for plants all the year round.

Ecology

It requires short installation time (within a few hours). Fast and ease of assembly and operation of the small dome structure do not require the use of heavy equipment, which does not change the natural landscape and harm the ecological balance of the environment.

Safty

Thanks to its geometry and high-quality materials, though it’s a lightweight structure, the geodome greenhouse has a strong seismic resistance. With maximum thermal insulation and weather resistance, it can withstand heavy loads, snow pressure, and the gust of wind up to 120 km/h. Therefore, the sphere tent set up in the garden is a robust and durable structure, even in harsh climates.
