But, don’t take our word for it, let’s compare some basic features in two types of event tents, canopy tents and event domes.  After comparing geodesic domes vs. canopy tents, you’ll be able to make an informed decision as to what best suits your needs and fits your budget… just, please remember to give your imagination wings!

Ecoliving Domes vs. Canopy Tents
Starting with the basic structure, did you know that free-standing geodesic domes have proven to be virtually disaster-proof during high winds, inclement weather, hurricanes and earthquakes?  Canopy tents have limitations on what wind, rain and snow loads they can withstand, and may require augmented set-up, anchoring and tethering that’s not included in the basic package.

Canopy tents may have to be taken down during severe weather. You might be wise to research, read the small print and look for any exclusionary clauses when considering canopy tents for outdoor events.

Unlike canopy tents, domes are suited to all types of terrains; they are fully deployable to just about any location on the planet; and, can be erected in hours with as little as 2 people, using simple hand ratcheting tools.  The larger event domes will require a small crew and equipment, such as tall ladders, scaffolding and cranes.

Both domes and canopy tents are considered temporary shelters, in that they can be taken down when no longer needed, this often simplifies or bypasses many building codes.  However, due to their portability, economical costs and sustainability, prefab ecoliving domes solve some logistic design challenges associated with outdoor events that exceed the limits of canopy tents.

A dome’s structure is one of the most efficient interior spaces because air and energy circulate without obstruction.  If additional heating or cooling becomes necessary during seasonal extremes, there’s very little energy lost, due to the dome’s enclosed space.

The spacious dome interior offers limitless possibilities for creativity.  Its circular design encloses the greatest volume of interior space with the least amount of surface area.
