Geodesic Domes

Albion Canvas has been specialising in the design and adaptation of Geodesic domes since the company’s formation in 1995. The company founder and chief designer Alan Wenham designed the first truly workable canvas cover for the true geodesic dome back in the mid 1990’s.

Our experience has grown from this simple start and has allowed us to work on several projects adapting and designing various domes.

All our Geodesic Domes are made and finished to the highest standards, all stress points have double and triple reinforcement where necessary and all seams are sewn with a French seam for strength and superior water exclusion. Careful consideration is given to final use and ease of build when designing frames and covers for individual clients.

The wood used for our smaller domes is locally sourced and sustainably managed British Ash machined, sanded and protected with a double coat of linseed oil. Larger domes can be wood framed within certain limitations or steel or aluminium frames for the larger structures.

The canvas is a 393gsm (12oz) cotton canvas, treated with a water repellent, rot inhibitor and fire retardant as standard. Albion Canvas Geodesic Domes are supplied with a fitted groundsheet as standard in the camping sizes.

Event sized structures can be supplied with other fabric covers according to need.
