Good Karma Geodesic Domes
We produce the strongest, simplest to erect, and the best dollar value of any dome on the market. Three best qualities all found in one single product: Hubless system. Instead of getting a pile of lumber, you receive a set of triangles specially engineered to simply fit together with no leaks. We use the system Bucky (Buckminster Fuller) originally designed: using triangles that press against each other to create a structurally sound, wind resistant dome. Our double strut design gives our domes more strength.
