ZENDOME has optimised the geodesic structure for the event market. 

Our Advanced Frame System (AFS) makes the difference. With the special structure system including intersection discs, colour code for the structure poles, structure feet and powder coating we have succeeded in developing a very special connection for geodesic structures. 

They are internationally protected under the patent number (WO/2007/054136) and perfect the construction and deconstruction of the geodesic dome, ensure a maximum of safety and reduce the construction time.

ZENDOME.storage + logistics

To optimize the protection of the Advanced Frame System and the best possible use on location, ZENDOME has developed its own transport system.
Special features such as foam inlays, synthetic boxes, stanchion compartments for the poles, intersection discs as well as the floor system will ensure the longevity of your system. 

The circular doorways can be taken apart and thus transported more easily also making uncomplicated and secure shipping possible. 

Our galvanized and stackable transport stanchions  for all parts of the structure, membrane and floor system make an effective use of space (optimized for naval containers) and also reduce the total volume.

The loading and unloading with forklifts as well as adjusting to different shipping possibilities such as naval containers or truck trailers also increase the investment security. 

If requested, ZENDOME will organise all large and small transports directly to your event location. 

Alternatively to the steel stanchion we can also order rental systems or charge a packaging lump sum.

ZENDOME. Doors

Elegant entrances: we have found a wide selection of solutions for the doors to the 'Space for Ideas' which can be integrated into the Advanced Frame System with style and without complication. 

For you to be independent from weather, to effectively use your climate control, to store equipment even safer and to provide an aesthetic feel for your event we plan your individual entrance situation: we offer a wide array ranging from the basic membrane opening to membrane doors or even fully equipped escape doors according to DIN EN 1125. 

The different door solutions are specially developed for the geometry of the ZENDOME and make a flexible integration into the membrane and structure possible. The possibility of integrating them into the prepared circular doorways of any ZENDOME size will provide maximum flexibility. 

With our aluminium door system you can also easily integrate real doors into the mobile architecture. For the frames and wings we only use aluminium parts from SCHÜCHO – ZENDOME trusts in 50 years experience in manufacturing doors. The wing width are in accord with the new European norms. 

All door elements are powder coated and are equipped  with a high quality closing system as well as SCHÜCO push bar solutions. 

In order to fit your event design you can choose from opaque aluminium (white) and transparent Makrolon ® (B1, clear). The door lintel made from membrane material is either white or transparent. 

Special door solutions are always a challenge. Talk to us.

ZENDOME. CIRCULAR DOORWAYS

Our circular doorways are an elegant and smooth system solution and part of the modular series by ZENDOME.
The standard for the ZENDOME.30M and ZENDOME.75M is one circular doorway each. If desired or required by your event, you can extend the prepared membrane with two further circular doorways. This will provide you with up to three circular doorways. 

The standard for the ZENDOME.150M and ZENDOME.300M are three circular doorways each which can be extended to five doorways for the ZENDOME.300M.

Be creative and vary the position of your doorways – we will realise your ideas individually and have the requested doorways integrated into the production of the membrane.

The doorways can also be realised very easily into the construction of the ZENDOME: we will provide you with a construction manual and exact plans where the doorways can easily be localised and constructed. 

And for you to be entirely on the safe side, the circular doorways and the entire system are TÜV tested. 

The circular doorways can not only provide the standard membrane entrances but also real door solutions as well as the tunnel connections for the ZENDOME.domescapes.

ZENDOME. Structure Foot

As connection point for structure poles and circular arcs the structure foot provides an aesthetic solution from 'Head to Toe'.

In order to protect the Advanced Frame System of the ZENDOME in the long term and to prevent it from resting directly on the ground as found with traditional structures, the especially developed ZENDOME.structurefoot marks the base of the structure at the ground level.

The structure foot is made from stainless steel, is powder coated and forms the perfect static connection to the ZENDOME.floorsystem or the anchoring plate. The connection is realised by self securing hammer-head bolts with a square shaft.

In combination with the optional and also galvanized steel anchoring plate, the foot can be secured to the ground with ground pegs. 

The ensuing ground ring provides the perfect solution to secure the membrane.

ZENDOME. Intersection Disc

Innovation is round. The intersection disc as connecting element between the structure poles is a static element of the ZENDOME Advanced Frame System.
Following the system of the geodesic structure, there are intersection discs with five and six holes where the colour coded poles are inserted. 

All but one pole can be inserted, moved to the right position and screwed tight in their keyholes. One pole prevents the patented system from twisting out of place.

As opposed to the solutions which where already used in the 1920s – traditional connection at one point where the thread points inward – the screwed connection is realised from the inside facing outward.

This makes the special intersection disc of the Advanced Frame System not only perfect in terms of ZENDOME design, but also increases the safety of the construction work during the event.

Furthermore, the hole in the middle of the intersection disc can be used for the Plug-Ins to elegantly install lighting, audio and decoration elements.

ZENDOME. ADVANCED FRAME SYSTEM

With the Advanced Frame System (AFS) patented by ZENDOME we have thought about mobility, safety and efficient cost calculation for your event. This special connection solution enables the safe, uncomplicated and clear construction of your geodesic dome at any location of your choosing. 

What is new: As opposed to traditional structure systems, the connection of the structure poles is not realised at one central point but at a perfectly fitting intersection disc. 

The structure poles are connected via fixed construction elements and threaded into key holes which makes construction and deconstruction very much easier and reduces the construction time by about 40%.

The safety is improved because we have very consciously dispensed with loose construction elements and at the same time use light construction elements which makes pre assembly possible. 

We have provided the structure poles with their own colour coding system and have thus made a faster and more secure positioning of the elements possible. 

Of course we at ZENDOME follow high quality standards with all our construction elements when it comes to material and processing: the poles are subject to the quality standards of traditional construction steel. 

The special finish for the longevity: the galvanized steel is finally powder coated with a very elastic coating which can also be realised in different RAL colours. 

This way, the Advanced Frame System does not only have the extraordinary design of every ZENDOME, but with its intersection discs also secures the static of the 'Space for Ideas' even in extreme weather conditions (tested static according to DIN 4112, DIN 1055 T4).
