Being so large, the Galileo dome can only be set up inside
a large hall, such as a school gym, sports hall or large
community hall etc. It is very important to measure up to
be certain it will fit – it really is very big!!
The minimum hall dimension requirements are:
at least 8.0m wide and with at least 4.2m of clear,
unobstructed height (that’s 27′ wide by 14’10” high)
To avoid disappointment, it is very important that you measure your venue 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 or other feature that the dome could potentially touch).
For school bookings, it is requested that lots of gym mats be
made available for Simon to put in the dome for the students
to sit on. For public events, it is generally better to have
either an all-seater configuration (up to 46 chairs) or to
have a few chairs at the back for those who particularly
need them with everyone else sitting on gym mats on the floor.
This increases the overall maximum numbers for public events
to around 55.
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.
