I wish I was in a position to purchase one of your beautiful dome kits
however our budget wont allow that. We will be moving to the Philippines in
the future and plan on making a dome using bamboo.
We were wondering if possibly your firm might be able to provide us
with hubs or connectors that might be suitable for this type of application.
Thank you,

ps your website is really great!!!

The connectors with out the covering will not stand. You could buy the tent with connectors and then use bamboo poles.


I’m very interested in your 14 ft. greenhouse. Can you tell me more about the
skin it’s made of and how much light transmission it admits?

Over 90%. It lets through more than glass.

I’m concerned
about heating it on cold nights, too, since it’s so high. What about
ventilation on hot days?

Since the panels of our domes are shingled, overhead ventilation is easily attained by inserting a lightweight object (eg, an empty plastic flower pot) between several panels (two “vent tubes” are included with each dome). When the can is removed, the panels snap shut and are watertight. For maximum ventilation the walls themselves can be rolled up, transforming the dome into an Opened-Arch Form.

Can one or more of the panels be rolled up when it’s
hot? Thanks for any information. Can I get a catalog? Please rush. I need
to buy soon.

We do not offer a hard copy catalog at this time. Please look at our online catalog: If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Dear Shelter Systems, I am interested in purchasing, or having made, a tent. I plan to use it for a project I am working on, as a “Reading Tent.” I am hoping to start a “Reading Road Show,” I’d like a tent large enough to hold 25 or 30 kids.

Great idea. I would recommend the 20’er.

I wonder if it could be made with pockets inside, and then if it would be strong enough for those pockets to hold books.

This would be easy for you to do.

I would like it to have an awning over the entrance if possible.

Look at our porches.

I’d like it to be red and black in color and festive in design.

We have white and white/black, no red. You could paint some of it or cover some of it with red cloth. You could also attach flags to make it festive.

I also envision it to have a window, large enough to serve as a puppet theater on the inside, also with an awning or some type of shelter around it on the outside for the puppeteers.

Perhaps a 14′ SolarDome with it set up in the open arched form.
