What is your dome made of?

"Each Dome is made up of 8 equal sized sections of a material called EPS."

EPS stands for Expanded polystyrene which is a plastic foam material that has certain desirable properties because of its structure. It is extraordinarily light and buoyant, and a good insulator against heat /cold and sound. It can be used as a building material or a design element, and can be molded into many shapes for a number of household uses as well.

In most cases, expanded polystyrene foam is white and is composed of small, interconnected beads. It is made by combining the chemicals ethylene and benzene, to make a compound known as styrene. The styrene is then treated with other chemicals which cause the styrene molecules to polymerize, or to group together in long chains. This reaction is only allowed to proceed to a certain point, and is then stopped. The resulting beads are allowed to cool and are then cleaned. After formation and cleaning, the beads must be expanded, which happens in three main stages. First, the beads are heated with hot air or steam until their density is three percent of its original value. The beads are then cooled for 24 hours and molded. Once inside the mold, they are injected with low-pressure steam, which further expands the beads and fuses them together. When the mold is cooled, the expanded polystyrene is finished and ready for use or shipment.

When choosing EPS you are getting a material with built-in features that provide environmental benefits. Building materials and their impact on the environment must be considered over the full life of the building structure. This is considered the ”life cycle” of the building. This includes inventorying the cost to the environment from material production, transportation, installation, use, and end of life reuse, recycling, or disposal. Research has shown that for both residential buildings and commercial buildings that operations contribute to over 90% of the building’s impact on global warming. Reducing energy use and its resulting pollution is the best way to reduce our impact on the environment. The energy savings from EPS in structures can translate into emission reductions of tons of carbon dioxide per year EPS improves the energy efficiency over the full operating life of the building resulting in a positive impact on the environment.

The Antioxidant method of healthy building construction

 By kneading "antioxidant solution" into expanded polystyrene, or the building material for the Dome House,active oxygen can be suppressed, resulting in the prevention of aging and the recuperation of your health. Also,because the Dome House is a formaldehyde-free building, you don't need to worry about sick-house syndrome.

Ultra-thermal insulating properties that enable energy savings

Because the Dome House uses expanded polystyrene as the building material, excellent thermal insulation can be obtained. Also, owing to its dome-shape, the Dome House allows the air to circulate by convection without being accumulated at the corners. For these reasons, air conditioning costs can be reduced substantially. The Dome House is an incredible ultra-energy-saving building.

Semipermanent durability

Not only is the Dome House structurally the most stable in shape, but also, unlike iron, it does not get rusted, nor, unlike wood, does not get rotten or eaten by termites. The Dome House offers a comfortable living space semi-permanently.

Gale resistant

The streamline curvature of a dome helps to dissipate wind energy.

The world's highest earthquake resistant

The Dome House is not only stable in structure but also extremely light in weight. It is because of this lightweight that the Dome House can withstand earthquakes.

Ultra-short assembly time

The Dome House can be built by assembling Dome Pieces. Each Dome Piece weighs only 80kg. Since assembly is quite simple, if performed by 3 or 4 people, it takes approximately 7 days to complete a Dome House.

Ultra-low cost

The Dome House is simple, since it is a prefabricated building with a small number of parts. Each Dome Piece is light and easy to carry, making the assembly quite easy. Because the construction of the Dome House requires only minimal manpower and a very short period of time, it is possible to reduce the substantial amount of labor costs.

Environmental measures

Since expanded polystyrene is made only from carbon and hydrogen, casting of expanded polystyrene is extremely clean. Construction of the Dome House does not produce any waste, nor does it involve any deforestation.

The dome-power

The Dome House has no "corners" in the room. Not only are there no corners in the room, but also there are no borders between the walls and the ceiling. This bright open space suffused with light is filled with indescribable warmth and comfort.
