THE PIONEER DOME

THE 5.0M DIAMETER PIONEER DOME WILL ACCOMMODATE UP TO 35 PRIMARY SCHOOL-AGE PUPILS, UP TO 25 SECONDARY SCHOOL PUPILS OR UP TO 22 ADULTS.

The Pioneer dome is ideal for smaller primary schools and youth groups which don’t have a hall big enough for one of the larger domes.  The Pioneer dome can comfortably fit a whole primary class at a time, so it’s still pretty big and still gives an amazing sense of space!

Secondary schools and colleges etc. are sure to have venues available that can take one of the larger domes, although the Pioneer dome can take smaller groups in a tall enough classroom if necessary.

The minimum hall dimension requirements for the Pioneer dome are: at least 5.5m wide, with at least 3.2m of clear, unobstructed height (that’s 18′ wide by 10’6″ high)

 

To avoid disappointment, it is very important that you measure your hall / gym etc. to be certain that it meets with these minimum dimension requirements (especially height, which should be measured from the floor to the lowest light fixture / beam below the ceiling in the area where the dome would be set up).

If you are in any doubt, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss the circumstances of your hall. For example, Simon may be able to fit the dome in between beams or light fittings that are slightly too low if they are spaced far enough apart. If the hall is quite narrow, it may be possible to lean gym mats against the wall to protect the dome from damage.

 

Audience members sit on the floor when in the Pioneer dome as, unlike the larger domes, it is not possible to accommodate chairs within it. For school bookings, everyone normally sits on gym mats on the floor. For youth group events such as Cubs or Brownies, if no mats are available, please ask everyone to bring a cushion to sit on!

In the event of an emergency, the entire dome can be safely deflated in a matter of seconds without it touching anyone inside.

The dome requires access to two normal power sockets.
