Frequently Asked Questions
All questions you might ask and more, on 3 parts:
1- Our dome's offer FAQS
How can I do if I want to see and try the product before buying?
We always provide customers with pictures and videos of their product during the whole process to keep them in touch with complete transparency. We also invite them to visit us in Shanghai, we help organize the trip and host you in China. For less than 3 days, no visa is needed to come to Shanghai.
How come your prices are lower than your competitors?
Operating from Shanghai allows us to leverage Chinese material costs, logistics and comparatively lower labour cost to provide the same European quality at a more competitive price.
Besides, we use our modular construction knowhow to offer a complete modular glamping solution, not only geodesic dome structures for events.
Why there is a minimum quantity?
To be able to provide a such high quality glamping solution for a very affordable price, we need to have a MOQ (minimum order quantity). Also, to reduce transportation cost to its minimum, we need ship by full 20ft container loads.
What is the delivery time for the domes?
Depends on stock, but considering no stock, production time is around 6 weeks and transportation time around 4 weeks.
What are payment terms? How can I do if I am not used to international operations?
Once you are decided, you make a deposit. The balance is paid once the goods are packed, inspected and loaded onto the ship. It depends also on the order quantity. If you are not very familiar with international operations, we can support you on this and have our European partners help you.
What is the package size of a basic dome solution including interiors ?
The dome structure with its cover and basic offer interiors have a volume of 2.5 cubic meters. A 20ft container can hold 10 to 12 complete dome solution.
What does the transport cost ?
A 20ft container costs an average USD1200 from Shanghai to Europe and USD2100 to USA. (just an estimate based on January 2016 rates, costs likely to fluctuate).
2- Domes customization FAQS
Is it possible to buy the structure only?
You can acquire just a part of the solution. If you need just the dome structure with the cover, it is possible, but the minimum buying order requested increases a little.
How can I customize my dome?
You can have more add-ons: inside insulated cover, wood stove and chimney, solar powered fan, curtains, platform (check out our add-ons part). You can have the design you want printed on the wall fabric. You can even customize your cover by choosing the position of flaps, windows and transparent PVC.
How do I heat or cool dome interior?
For cold weather, you can add an insulated inside liner and add a stove. For hot weather, you can use an air conditioner, solar fans and roll up ventilation flaps.
Do you provide any floor solutions?
The floor solution is not included on the basic offer. But upon your request we can provide a perfectly fit wood or steel platform that leaves enough space for a little balcony. Depends on you. Contact us for more details.
Can I have a detailed list of what is included in your offer?
Just ask us, we will provide all information needed.
How can the Eco Cabin be used in a glamping camp?
The 14m2 and 28m2 Eco Cabins are completely autonomous and can be used as a shared kitchen, private luxury bathroom, lounge space, or bedroom. Connecting several of them offers different types of architecture and organization inside a glamping camp. Their large bay windows allow you to connect with nature.
If I want to change my dome covers, can you help on that?
Of course. If you are facing little issues with the cover or want to change them after a long time of use, we can provide new covers.
3- Dome specifications FAQS
What is a Geodesic dome?
I invite you to check wikipedia's definition, can't do better :).
What is the frame made of? Can it resist to all situations?
Galvanized steel. Can be powder coated white. It is strong enough to resist to different weather conditions. For extreme conditions, heavy snow or others, thickness can be increased. Our engineers will take care of the strength needed based on the data you give us. The price might change a bit.
What is the entrance tunnel for?
More than the esthetic side, the entrance door offers a covered entrance area of 0,7m2, a transition place, protected from wind, rain and snow, before entering or leaving the cocoon.
What type of cover do you use? Which one is better for me?
PVC white coupled with transparent cover, 650 g/m2, material imported from Europe. The transparent PVC can be either on top or on the sides, depending on the landscape and the general theme inside the dome.
How are domes anchored to the ground?
Domes are anchored to the ground in various ways, depending on the soil and your preferences. Could be ballast, could be stakes/ earth nails, could be screw in anchors or helical piers.
What about insulation and ventilation inside the dome?
The PVC cover is water proof. For cold weather, an interior insulated liner can be placed to improve the comfort.
Zip operable windows and flaps are placed all around the cover to ventilate the structure as needed. A solar powered fan can be placed on top to improve air circulation.
Any maintenance needed for the frame, the cover? What is their lifespan?
The steel structure can stand up to 10 years with very low maintenance, cleaning time to time. Cover can last up to 5-7 years in extreme conditions, on a full time use basis. If seasonally used, both can last longer.
What do I need to assemble a dome? and fit outs?
2 or 3 people, 3 hours, our instruction manual, and some basic tools, that's all you need. Fit outs will take an additional 1 or 2 hours.
Can I use my dome all year long?
All year long, all seasons, can stand for years.
Do I needed a construction permit? Is there any ground improvement to do before dome installation?
Usually no construction permit is needed. Sometimes, depending different country regulations, an authorization might be needed.
Ground generally needs limited improvement. Generally a wood platform supported by some pillars is used as the base for the dome. Steel platforms can be used as well, they are stronger and can last longer.
