Material Selection for Dome Covers
At our manufacturing unit, the standard material we employ for dome covers is an opaque layer designed to block harmful UV rays. This ensures longevity and a consistent appearance over time.
We do offer a transparent front, but it's vital to handle this feature with care. Its primary function is to provide a windowed view; however, the top part shouldn't be fully transparent. The crystal foil used for this purpose is mainly for aesthetics. It lacks the robustness of the white material. Additionally, its unique properties mean it's sensitive to temperature fluctuations – becoming stiff in winter and unusually flexible in the summer
Transparent vs Opaque Material Considerations
Understanding the end-use of the dome is crucial for us to advise on the right material. While some foils are summer-friendly, others are tailored for winter conditions.
It's worth noting that the transparent foil doesn't hold up as well as the opaque white one in terms of durability. For those seeking a permanent dome solution with complete transparency all year round, we suggest opting for glass over foil. The resilience and lasting nature of glass make it an excellent choice. However, keep in mind that glass isn't suitable for temporary events due to its fixed nature and installation demands.
The warranty for our dome covers varies with the selected material. Some materials, due to their durability, are backed by up to a 7-year warranty. However, not all covers will qualify for this extended period.
Explore our two main standard dome cover styles, along with a special fully transparent option, which is not part of the standard offerings.
Our standard covers
A Full white - optimal event dome cover
For event domes, our top recommendation is the full white/opaque cover without any transparent sections. This fully opaque design ensures complete darkness inside, presenting both advantages and challenges.
Particularly suited for high-temperature regions, it's indispensable for projection domes. Manufactured from a robust three-layer material, this white cover comes with a warranty of up to 7 years and boasts 60% more UV radiation absorption than covers of other colors.
B One-Piece Transparent front Event Domes
Seeking a dome that merges natural lighting with the allure of interior visibility? Opt for our event dome tents with a transparent front. This design ensures ample natural light, reducing the need for artificial illumination, and captivates outside viewers by offering a peek inside. Typically, the transparent portion spans 1/3 of the total cover. Standard for Polidomes up to 700 sqm, our one-piece fabrication ensures swift setups, a wrinkle-free appearance, and no extra attachments, unlike multi-piece alternatives.
C Transparent Domes: Specialized, Not Standard
Full transparent domes, while unique, present challenges. Their longevity is compromised by the foil's climate fragility and lack of sewing layers, making them delicate and harder to maintain. Especially with larger domes, structural integrity requires opaque cover supports at triangle edges; otherwise, the weight overloads the cover's tip. Consequently, their cost surpasses other options. Ideal for specific events, frequent setups and takedowns can harm their structure. These aren't readily available; we craft them upon special request.

Dome Material Varieties:
Tailoring to Needs & Environments
Opaque UV-Block Covers
Constructed from non-translucent materials combined with a UV-blocking layer and coated with PVC on both sides. Color choices are restrictive, with white acclaimed for its unparalleled light and heat deterrence. These covers are customizable through printing. They are especially suited for projection domes in the Middle East and warmer climates. Warranty extends up to 7 years.
Crystal Transparent Covers
Composed of clear PVC, absent of a sewing layer, they're popularly termed as window foils. Due to their sheer nature, their usage is recommended as sections or windows. Direct printing isn't possible, but vinyl stickers offer a branding solution. The warranty for these covers spans 1-2 years.
Translucent PVC Membranes
Echoing attributes of opaque covers but with added translucency, these PVC sheets mirror the fabric used for truck covers. They permit sunlight, which can warm the dome's interior. Perfect for patrons wanting specific colors, they're less advised for hot regions. A warranty of up to 5 years is provided.
B-roof & Advanced Covers
For specialized endeavors with distinct demands, we introduce materials beyond the standard range, such as B-roof, glass, or stadium covers. The choice depends on the project's nature or associated legal requirements. Every solution undergoes meticulous consideration before recommendation.
At Polidomes, each of our structures proudly displays our logo, skillfully welded to the material. Positioned consistently on the right side at the entrance's base, the logo measures 10 cm by 25 cm, offering a balance of visibility and subtlety to our design.
Comparing Light Penetration: Blackout Covers vs. Translucent PVC
The play of light has a significant impact on how we perceive spaces. Whether for aesthetic or functional reasons, choosing the right type of material to control light can shape the mood and utility of an environment. Our recent illustration delves into this aspect, comparing two popular choices: blackout covers and translucent PVC.
