Updated monthly. Whew! it's May 15 already and we are behind on our Newsletter and dome production too. This month I'm doing an abbreviated Newsletter. Thanks for visitting and come back soon!

Julie' Weldon has been helping us sometime now with dome promotion, marketting, customer relations and sales. She is featured in two photos this month of recent dome projects. First is a 10 foot steel tube dome. It is a school project and climbing dome for the youngsters. The 1-3/8 inch tubes should be plenty strong to hold up to climbing on. I tried it myself and had a brief moment of inspiration!

Final touches...

Next is 1/2 of a 9 foot diameter Geo-Sphere of the Star Dome 1A type. Another school project, this one for high school seniors. Perhaps a good way to generate interest in math and geometry.  Made from 3/4 inch steel tubes it is also quite sturdy! We recently purchased machinery that enables us to mass produce these steel tube hubless {in most cases} domes of all shapes and sizes used for whatever purpose...


This 38 foot diameter dome that will be a home for a helium balloon in New York. Type is 4 Frequency Class II icosahedral. It is made from steel tubes, 1-3/8, 1-5/8, and 2 inches in diameter. A special feature of the dome is the two revolving doors which will swing open on an axis/axle at the dome apex where one of our steel patented hubs will make the vertex connection. Pictorial drawing with one door section removed. 2/5ths of the dome will be openable, wide enough for a large balloon, airplane, boat, RV, alien space craft....
