This cover fits a 4.8m diameter dome.

Sticks to make the 4.8m diameter dome:
  • Shorts: 1224mm
  • Longs: 1395mm
  • Two long sticks: 2315mm


Creating the shelter:

Creating the open side in the dome:

  • Build the full 4.8m dome as you would normally.
  • Try to get the base ring as circular as you can, to help with the fit of the cover.
  • Secure the base hubs that will still be retained after the open section is removed - the structure will be weak with the base being secured!
  • Remove the hubs and sticks whilst supporting the horizontal stick at the top of the opening.
  • Insert the two long sticks at either side of the opening.

Orientating and attaching the cover:
  • Open the cover out and find the obvious 'corners'.
  • Attach these to the hubs at the bottom left and right of the opening.
  • Another good check is that the hooks in the base are attached with elastic rather than woven (non stretchy) webbing.
  • Next connect the topmost hook, then the next pentagon out.
  • Then connect the hooks to the base ring.
  • Finally connect the remaining hooks.
  • At some points you'll need one person to push from the inside, whilst someone on the outside connects the hook into the eyelet.

Maintenance and care:
We'd recommend taking the cover down over autumn / winter, or if there is going to be a prolonged period of rain / dampness.
  • Brush off dirt when dry. 
  • Use a damp cloth and lukewarm water to clean more stubborn stains.
  • The teflon coating will help to make dirt and marks easier to remove.
  • Re-proofing; consider spray-on treatments, note that some options may affect flammability.
  • If packing away, ensure the cover is dry before putting it back in the bag.

  • 250gsm Polycotton (65% Polyester, 35% Cotton).
  • PU2000mm waterproof coating.
  • Seams stitched using expanding thread to help reduce leaks.
  • Teflon coating; anti-rot, anti-corrosion, anti-fouling, oil-proofing, water repellant.
  • Fire-retardancy; part of manufacturing process, not applied as a coating.
  • UV protection.
