Dear Eleanor,

I am Majie from Xinjiang and we have bought three 14′ Grodomes from your company. We want to build a pedestal for these domes. So, I sent this mail to conform the shape of the bottom of the 14′ Grodomes are rigorous dodecagon? and I also wnt know the exact size of each border of the dodecagon (14’Grodome).

Best, Majie

Looking for a wind and dust proof tent for our trips every summer to Lake Powell.

See manual about dust: https://shelter-systems.com/lighthouse-manual.html

It is usually very nice up there, but the weather can change rapidly. We have gone through many 4 season tents that are supposed to withstand the wind, but fail. I think it is a combo of the heat and wind. I would just need one of you smaller sizes 11′, 12′,13′?. We like to “car camp” when we are up there meaning we bring a lot of stuff. We are a family of 4 but have a hard time fitting in a typical 4 man tent.

14′ is the smallest I would recommend, 18 would be best for 4 people

Are your smaller size domes as wind resistant as your larger size domes?

the 10 is but not the 11 or 8

What are the poles made of?

pvc

Is the floor connected to the walls?

no but it can be (see manual)

Are instruction manuals avaliable so I can see how they go together?

Thanks
Alex

Thank you for your long suffering answers to my questions, as this is my first business venture I’m keen to make sure the domes are suitable for my needs. I’ve read a lot about the waterproof properties of the rip stop fabrics you use, and also that they are light weight. I would just like to know what would be the best similar material to compare them to – is it similar to regular tent fabric, ground sheets or more like a heavier gortex type material.

what we use is like a super high grade plastic tarp; it is FR and UV stablized; you can not tear it with your hands even if you start with a cut

Also regarding breathability, you mention shingling, does this mean the fabric is layered allowing wind to pass through, or is it glued with a sizable overlap allowing another form of breathability?

the panels are over lapped by 3″ and under high tension

Is the material noisy in wind?

it is drum tight so it does not flap in the wind

Since drunken festival goers are likely to be a problem, how well does the fabric hold up to poking and being fell on (obviously best avoided but would it handle the odd idiot?)

should not be a problem

also how fire proof is it?

Fire Retarded Certified to meet CPAI 84

Finally on the 14ft and 20ft domes, are 4 windows the maximum, and how many doors can be added – is this done by yourselves during production?

these domes come standard with 4 doors and 4 frosted non-opening windows

Thank you for your time, Peter
