The 30′ Yurt and Dome™

It’s made wholly of our white Shelter Systems’ covering, a super strong woven rip stop film . All fabrics we use have been treated with ultraviolet inhibitors which help protect against sun exposure, watertight, are fire retarded and will not rot or mildew.
The frame is constructed of strong, long-lasting PVC tubing. Patented Grip Clips™ join the Yurt’s cover to the frame. Grip Clips provide greater strength than sewn seams or any type of grommet, because they do not puncture the cover. Each panel of the dome is shingled over the next so that the dome breathes yet is completely waterproof!

The 11′ tall 30′ Yurt and Dome

It has eight doors. The door coverings close automatically so you can go in or out quickly. There are no zippers to fumble with or break. For maximum ventilation the walls themselves can be rolled up. There is always plenty of light and fresh air in the 30′ Yurt Dome.

Easy Setup

Your 30′ Yurt and Dome goes up in less than one hour without tools. You simply insert interchangeable poles into connectors spaced evenly over the cover, no tools are required except a hammer to drive the ground pegs in. The poles bend slightly when inserted, which tightens the cover into a wind- and waterproof dynamic shelter. Because of its large size and weight, the 30′ requires two strong people working together to put it up. Since the dome is freestanding, you can turn or move the dome into desired position after it is up. When your Dome is not being used, you can take out the poles, roll it up, and store it.



The 30′ Yurt and Dome comes complete with stakes, guy lines, vent tubes, spare parts and an Instruction Manual that details floors, site selection, anchoring, cooling, winterizing, and stove installation.
