Our glasshouses create ideal biodomes to replicate different environments. Build your own eco-system to preserve and monitor the flora and fauna of a range of climates from a lush jungle to an arid desert.
Biodome or greenhouse?
A biodome is so much more than a regular greenhouse. A biodome is a self-contained and self-sufficient environment with no interaction with the outside world. The lifecycle of all the plants and animals in the dome contribute to the ongoing regeneration of life inside to produce a genuine biome. Because of this, biodomes tend to be much larger than a greenhouse simply due to the fact they need to house a wide variety of species.
A geodesic biodome is ideal for recreating eco-systems and allows scientists to research environments in a controlled manner. By changing the environment, such as introducing non-native plants or changing the humidity, the impact of various changes can be monitored without risk to the natural world.
Your new eco-system
Create your own biodome with either a large glasshouse (Solardome® Sanctuary or Solardome® Paradise), or to create fully insulated and controllable environment for sizes up to 25m in diameter there is the Solardome® PRO system.
Other commercial examples
In support of the project’s ambitions to be a valuable educational experience for schools, community groups and families, Solardome Industries has provided a SOLARDOME® Sanctuary dome, known as The Very Hungry Caterpillar Solardome®.
