An inflatable dome provides an imposing and practical event space

Spider Dome

The Spider Inflatable Dome is a large inflatable event tent for occasions when a big event space is required. It is designed to create a large covered floor area and yet be easy and quick to set-up …. and it does not a require permanent power supply to stay inflated! Its contemporary look is based on a hexagonal inflatable structure with 6 legs and a zipped-on roof canopy. Attractive visors (entrance canopies) are also available, which provide additional covered floor area and further high visibility branding space. In summary, the Spider fits the bill perfectly when your need is for a fully branded, large, all-weather event tent.


Available in two sizes, 8m or 10m, the Spider Inflatable Dome provides a covered floor space from 42m2 to 80m2. It can be supplied with a variety of options including zip-off reversible walls, optional visors or canopies, and full branding to suit your corporate image or event requirements. One configuration that has proved very popular with clients is the Spider 10 with 3 side walls and 3 visors over the open sides. This configuration provides 74m2 of covered floor space and outstanding branding possibilities.

Hybrid Dome

The Hybrid Inflatable Dome is a new concept of dome which combines the best features of sealed inflatable domes (such as the Spider which is inflated once and then stays erect) and constant airflow domes (domes that use a continuously running fan to stay erect). More information and sizes for the Hybrid dome are coming soon, but branding options are as the Spider, i.e. full branding of all parts of the tent is possible.

Rapid Set-up

Both the Spider and Hybrid inflatable domes are manufactured using strong, but lightweight, polyester fabric with internal bladders for the air chambers. Using patented smart inflation systems that controls the airflow, they can both be set up by just 2 people and take less than 20 minutes to erect and secure in place. Whichever tent design you choose, the whole system can be packed into the wheeled trolley bag supplied and transported in an average size car boot, making these tents ideal for any roadshow or event.

Inflatable Domes – Project Examples

Dome Branding

Our inflatable domes are designed to be branded to match your corporate identity or event requirements perfectly. The whole tent, i.e. roof, walls, visor and even the structure tubes can be fully printed to accurately match your desired colour scheme.

Printing is carried out on the tent material before manufacturing the tent, enabling high quality colour fast dye sublimation printing techniques to be used. The end result is beautifully reproduced colours and graphics that will make your inflatable dome stand out from the crowd.

Fully replaceable zip-on/zip-off covers are also available for our Spider range of inflatable dome tents. These can be branded and printed to ensure your inflatable structure matches your brand.

Dome Options

The Spider Inflatable Dome can be customised with your choice of walls (up to 6 in total per tent), visors, flooring, lighting and ground anchoring methods.

Walls with windows, doors, vented mesh windows or even panorama windows are available, and all can be fully branded.

Visors provide attractive covered entrances to open sides of the dome and can have a banner for additional signage or branding. They also increase the overall covered area, which is useful at wet weather events.

A range of lighting options are available, as are a number of flooring options. Ask our sales team for advice on the best option for your inflatable event dome.

LED lighting systems can have a transformative effect on the inside of our inflatable domes, giving your guests a spectacle to remember. As an optional extra, we can provide ambient internal LED lighting systems, comprising of one colour or a mixture of colours.


Trussing is not required in our inflatable domes as they have been designed to be free-standing. However if required, full internal trussing systems are available to hang PA equipment, lighting, etc.

Doors and Closures

Our inflatable domes are designed with security in mind as well as stability and safety. As a result, all of our inflatable domes are manufactured with zip-in/zip-out doors as standard. Other door systems are also available including fire safety openings that are fully lockable for increased security.


Flooring can greatly enhance the interior of our inflatable domes. For grass and hard standing, we offer lightweight snap lock flooring which can be further enhanced with a finishing carpet. Aluminium or ply flooring can also be manufactured on request and these surfaces offer a professional and stable base which can take a number of finishes including carpets and wooden flooring.


All of our inflatable domes pack down to a considerably smaller volume than their inflated size, the largest of which deflates down to less than 2 cubic meters. This makes these structures ideal for storage, transportation and repeat usage as outdoor event tents. Each dome is supplied in its own storage bag and can be moved easily in and out of any venue.


We’re confident that our exceptional design and service will supply you with exactly what you need for any event, which is why we offer a 12 month warranty on the manufacturing process and materials of all inflatable domes. Please ensure that the user manual and installation guides are followed. Due to the unpredictable nature of the weather and installation conditions, we reserve the right to carry out an onsite inspection to determine if the warranty conditions have been met.
