The Classic STARLAB® Dome, developed in 1977, is available in two sizes, Standard and Giant. It is made from a nylon-reinforced, flame-resistant, Latex-free, industrial-grade fabric. The outer surface of this durable fabric insures opacity even in fully lighted rooms. The inside surface has an aluminized reflective coating designed to clearly display bright images. Its unique design, kid-friendly crawl-through entrance tunnel and portability make it ideal for interactive, hands-on, minds-on learning.
A powerful fan inflates and circulates air throughout the dome through a carefully designed ventilation system which maintains a comfortable temperature and prevents excessive air loss during entry and exit.
STARLAB® is an incredibly precise, interactive and exciting planetarium. The innovative design of this highly durable and portable dome, creates an ideal environment for hands-on, minds-on activities. It is so versatile, it can used as a portable darkroom, a visual center for movies, slides, and overhead projections. Its unique design structure even provides excellent acoustics for sound experiments and music.
Larger domes are taller and are best used in gyms or cafeterias.
