The domes are ideal for a range of applications, making a striking feature in a variety of settings and bringing an element of style and elegance to domestic, educational, community or commercial projects.
There are many benefits to a Solardome® geodesic dome design:
• A truly multipurpose outdoor space
• Superior air distribution and airflow, which helps maintain a uniform temperature and keep it fungus and disease free
• Energy efficient and economical shape to heat
• Weather resistant including gusts of hurricane force winds
• Minimal maintenance design
• 97% light transmission through the multifaceted glass ensures maximum solar gain, leading to an extended growing season
• Eco-friendly design, manufactured from recycled materials and fully recyclable at the end of its long life
With a Solardome® glasshouse it is possible to create a unique growing environment. Customers have made mini-Eden domes for their gardens and at the other end of the scale produced large community biomes. A dome makes a stylish tropical spa cover or outdoor dining room, and in schools and educational facilities they can be utilized as unique outdoor learning environments. The possibilities are endless.
Standard glasshouses are available with 4mm toughened glass and range from 3.5m to 10m diameter. A bespoke design service is also available.
