    High-quality engineering underpins every project, whether it is an existing dome design or a bespoke development

    Standard solutions

    Fulldome.pro has a range of domes from 1.5 meters (4.5 feet) to 30 meters (100 feet) in diameter to suit most needs. Each of these domes use a proven design and incorporates years of continual improvement and refinement. Our engineers ensure the design is fit-for-purpose and will withstand the expected loads of equipment, wind, rain, or snow. Fulldome.pro can provide engineering reports to satisfy local authorities of structural suitability and to meet certifications.

    Here are some of our “off-the-shelf” projection dome solutions

    Customized solutions

    When one of many existing designs can’t be used, Fulldome.pro’s experienced engineering team can design a dome to meet specific requirements. From fitting a dome screen into an existing building to providing detailed engineering plans and specifications for architects, the engineering team has a long history of delivering innovative solutions for the trickiest of situations. Customizations include mounting systems for supporting domes from walls, suspending from above, inclined or even vertically mounted domes, plus base structures and tiered seating platforms, and purpose designed mounting hardware for projectors and speakers. As with standard solutions, structural reports can be provided to satisfy local building and safety requirements.

    Irregular screens

    Fulldome.pro engineers have a history of innovative solutions for irregularly shaped screens and structures for the most challenging applications.
    The growth of flying cinema and other immersive projection environments has created demand for irregularly shaped screens that are neither flat, curved on a single axis, nor domed. Our engineers have created truncated, elliptical, and capsule-type screens for a variety of projects. In certain circumstances a frameless, negative-pressure screen can be used where the building itself forms the outer shell or an air-tight envelope is created by fixing a fabric membrane inside a void. The ingenuity of the Fulldome.pro engineering team has allowed these irregular screens to be installed without complex, heavy, and expensive supporting structures.
