Frame Only

The one and only frame only geodesic dome kit to enable DIY lovers, and owner builders to bring their projects to life. The shell structure will include all the framework components. All you need to fabricate on your own is the cover panels.

Heat treated hubs to increase strength and durability.

The heat treatment of cast aluminum alloys is carried out to increase their strength and hardness and to change their physical, mechanical, and metallurgical properties with a controlled heating (to extreme temperatures) and cooling. This process also provides better surface finishes, improves machinability, and strengthens the mechanical properties.

Powder coated in anthracite color.

The powder coating with anthracite color is not only an elegant and a sleek touch on our design, but also provides a layer of protection against corrosion, scratches/chipping and fading. The Class 2 paint has a long-lasting lifespan with a 20 year warranty.

Embedded sealing to maximize waterproofness

Two main sealing components are used on Ekodome Frames: TPE / SEBS and EPDM. EPDM and TPE both resist water, weather, ozone, and sunlight. However, compared to EPDM, TPEs offer greater design flexibility, and SEBS provide a better water-resistant solution with high reflectivity and high tensile strength.

The bottom of the hubs have an embedded sealing made out of EPDM to prevent any leakages from the connection points. The struts also have sealings made out of TPE / SEBS to secure the watertightness at points where cover panels are placed.

High strength to weight ratio

Aluminum is one of the lightest engineering metals, having the strength to weight ratio superior to steel. Our frame strength comes from not only precision-cut durable aluminum profiles but also from the solid panels you can easily mount on the shell design.

Easy self-assembly

Ekodome kits are optimized for self-assembly, requiring only a handful of people working together in less than a day-time, with minimum set of tools. Depending on the size of your selected dome, you may need a ladder or a crane to reach the roofing part. All instructions and panel templates come with the kit.

Geodesic domes are the only man made structure that gets proportionally stronger as the size increases. They are lighter, require fewer materials, are more efficient, are structurally more sound, and are more cost effective.
