When you plan to launch a glamping resort, one of the first questions that pop up in your mind is how to make the dome an all-year solution. Therefore, we have prepared a list of elements you should consider when purchasing FDomes Glamping, either for your personal use or business purposes. We have divided the essential accessories we offer into two groups – for cold and hot climates. In this blog post, let’s focus on the first group. Enjoy!
Feel the atmosphere
Imagine a winter wonderland – an incredible natural landscape covered in snow and you watching it through a huge bay window in a heated dome drinking a hot beverage. Sounds magical, right?
Traditional camping is mainly associated with the warmer season, but glamping can be enjoyed all year long even Above The Arctic Circle!
Do you wonder what is needed to change the regular geodesic dome into a winter dome? In this article, you can find the essential accessories that retain heat inside the FDomes Glamping and add a little touch to the interior design. Additionally, all of them are useful during The Summer Season.
The insulation system keeps warmth inside the geodesic dome on cold days. It also acts as a vapour barrier, preventing moisture from building up inside the dome.
Selecting the proper insulation type is crucial to keep thermal comfort inside the dome. We offer two types of insulation: Standard Alum-Air Insulation and Insulation+.
The Standard Insulation Liner is made of fibre-free, non-allergic and non-irritant material with a tailored canvass headliner for enhanced appearance. A breathable, multi-foil insulation layer with descriptional lining provides efficient thermal insulation in every condition whilst being very thin and adaptable at the same time.
The Standard Alum-Air Insulation is recommended down to -15°C. However, if your FDomes Glamping stands in temperatures below -15 ° C, we recommend adding Insulation+. The additional insulation layer goes underneath the standard one and helps maintain the desired interior temperature on cold days. This option is equivalent to 13cm of styrofoam!
The primary purpose of the insulation is to retain heat, but it will also make the interior feel cosier. You can choose insulation in one of the three available colours: khaki, ecru and light grey.
Cosy heat (stove and chimney)
The wood-burning stove with a specially adjusted chimney makes the dome interior pleasant and warm, creating a unique glamping atmosphere that you can enjoy all year round. It is arranged with a ceramic combustion chamber and a steel base plate so that no hot elements stand too close to the dome wall and are isolated from the flooring.
If you wish to use your own designer stove, you can select the chimney only. The chimney comes in an elegant anthracite colour that complements every insulation shade. The insulated chimney arrives with a laser-cut steel collar Mounted In One Of The Three Porthole Windows. It prevents unwanted heat transfers towards the membrane and waterproofs the opening.
