Before choosing and buying the geodesic sphere, it is necessary to understand the principles behind the geodome structure. What determines the quality of a dome? How to select the right dome to ensure it is both secure and space-efficient for accommodation or event use? This is where you will get the answers.
What makes the geodesic sphere strong?
What defines whether the quality of the geodesic sphere is good or bad?
The keys are hidden in the product details. With so many options to choose from in the whole dome market, you can first inspect the spherical structure sample, then consider the following factors and make your final decision.
The structure frame is the core. Geodesic domes of high quality are constructed of quality materials. The powder-coating steel frame guarantees its hard-pressed and rustproof features. You can also determine the quality by checking the framework’s thickness and its ability to withstand wind and snow loads. For example, the structure frame that SHELTER DOME offers can bear the wind and snow load up to 120km/h (74.5mph) and 0.5kn/㎡ (51kg/㎡).
You can easily tell if you have chosen a reliable supplier by the quality of accessories such as curtain kits. Well-textured curtains and smooth curtain tracks take the whole geodesic sphere up a level.
