Made with a square footprint, for maximum usage of typical exhibit space with 10' x 10' floor area.
For illustrative purposes it is shown made with 2" diameter tubes. In practice, these might be 3/4" for lower vertical columns and 1/2"" for upper areas. Door height is 84" and apex height is 9' - 4". This is a good simple "square dome" design with good rigidity. Some cross-bracing on two or three sides can make it more stabilized.
Including bottom 10 ft. struts, only 5 different strut lengths are used. These are bolted together with carriage bolts with wing nuts or regular hex nuts with washers and lockwashers. Assembly best done with an assistant but can be a one-person operation, quickly after a little experience.
The structure can have a quickly installed/removed tarp cover for
portability, made from various materials including our Super
Poly and SYNTHETIC FIRE RESISTANT canvas. Also use our Super Poly
or polycarbonate greenhouse glazing
for horticulture use.
Optional: Aluminum framework using round tube struts and connector plates. See Aluminum Domes
A 10 x 10 ft. footprint with an octagram
and short octagraml dome on the top.
The back square may have the same octagram design and is not shown for clarity.
As shown the top point would be 13 ft - 8 inches high. Sides and bottom are square producing a higher apex.
You can customize your structure with many designs and we can build it for you.
Display - Art - Exhibit
These new designs are based on a square footprint of typical exhibit spaces of 10 x 10 feet. By adding triangles to a basic box structure, strength and rigidity is established and a structure far superior to flimsy canopy covers.
Working with geodesic principles, triangles, trusses, domes and ornamental patterns are added to the basic framework.
You can choose from these designs and even create your own and we will build it and work with you from your design ideas.
Translucent white woven poly, synthetic canvas, clear woven poly (our greenhouse covering), etc. can be used for the covering. We can make the covering to your requirements and it will be a durable, functional
covering to match the structure's design and fit well.
The cover can be sewed together into one piece with zippered doors and windows, with grommets for lacing to the structure if desired.
The flat octagram [or other design] can be added to one, two, or three sides,
leaving one side open for an entrance.
Here are top, 2 side views, and a wireframe see-thru:
Art booth exhibit domes are
made from galvanized steel conduit (see Geo-Sphere).
The standard dome has machined areas ground smooth and bare metal areas
coated with zinc anti-corrosion paint. They will
last many years and stay rust resistant. All attaching hardware is galvanized steel for best durability. We can also make in wood with our Construction Connectors using the hub-strut method. This would be best for something permanently situated lower cost (use the Connector Kit), and for adding on roof panels or Super Poly; but with the quick connecting feature can be more suitable for a portable dome.

They are not limited to a 10 x
10 ft floor area- might be 8' x 8', 12' x 12' or 15' x 15'
