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 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.

While the Standard Dome can be set up almost anywhere and can accommodate up to 27 people, the Giant Dome has the capacity to seat up to 56 people. The Giant Dome is best set up in an open space such as an auditorium, a gymnasium or a large classroom. It is an ideal tool for large school groups, for museum programs including community outreach and fundraisers, for star parties, and for individuals running their own educational business who desire the capability of accommodating larger groups. Both domes are wheelchair-accessible and allow for rapid evacuation.

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.
