Hypedome bubble pods create an intimate, private space in any environment. A great way to make them feel even cosier, and add a touch of luxury, is with Hype.Wall insulated panels.
In an office setting, a clear dome is transformed into an inviting, quiet space where you can conduct meetings undisturbed by outside noise. A glamping dome becomes an intimate bedroom, protected from the first rays of the sun – as well as any neighbours that may be able to see in!
Best of all, these panels come with an insulated core – so you can create the perfect climate for your secluded space. And because they have soundproofing properties that work both ways, what happens inside the pod will stay private, too.
What are Hype.Wall Panels?
Hype.Wall Panels are upholstered, interior panels that fit the inside of the pod. They turn a clear dome into a cosy bedroom or office that’s protected from the sun and glare – not to mention curious neighbours! Individual panels are hexagon shaped, like the wall segments, and go up in a fish-scale pattern.
These panels are a great fit for the Hypedome glamping pod, allowing you to turn a stylish shelter into a cosy retreat with stunning views anywhere you like. For inspiration, imagine a warm summer’s evening in one of these Sky Dome Villas, watching the sun go down over the bay of Santorini. Or have a look at how Belgian restaurateur Rik Terlyn has added a glamping cove to his spot by the river, so guests can sleep under the stars and wake up to the sounds of birds calling and water trickling by.
Depending on the size of your dome, a full set consists of either 71 or 91 panels and fits into a predefined position inside the dome. This covers nearly 70% of the dome’s surface, creating a panoramic window at the front. If you feel creative, you can adjust them to your own needs – for example, fewer panels can be installed to make different configurations or individual panels can be removed to create windows.
Below we present the two predefined layouts of Hype.Wall Panels.
Hype.Wall hexagons are made with hotel-grade textiles and are finished with quality stitching along the sides. They instantly make the dome’s interior cosier and give it a premium look & feel. The inner layer is highly durable but very tactile upholstery fabric, while the outside is a waterproof layer which prevents any condensation coming through. Inside, a thermal-core layer of polyethene foam with two aluminium screens provides insulation properties.
The Hype.Wall Panels have to be assembled in a certain order, but each one is labelled, and the step-by-step instructions include a map so you can’t go wrong. Installation is straightforward and takes around 2 hours. The panels can be retrofitted onto the existing dome, and easily taken down if needed.
The most important feature of the Hype.Wall panels are their insulating qualities. The inside foam layer, combined with the air trapped between the panels and the walls, helps maintain the interior temperature of the dome. It offers the thermal conductivity coefficient λ=0,029 W/mK and 85% radiation heat reflectance.
Panels help to control the climate and prevent the dome from overheating in the summer. In the winter months, they make it much easier to keep the interior warm when paired with a heat source e.g. an electric heater fan.
These insulated panels also help soundproof the pod, which adds to the feeling of privacy (also good for romantic getaways!). We particularly love our office pods for 1-on-1 meetings, because of the optimum concentration conditions. This is also a great feature if you want to provide a ‘deep work zone’ for your employees. Our HR Manager Agnieszka always uses them for interviewing potential candidates, because she knows that she and her interviewees can speak candidly without being overheard. What is said in a Hypedome stays in a Hypedome!
Liquid Block Technology
The textiles used to make the wall panels are impregnated with liquid block technology, which makes them moisture-repellant and therefore resistant to mould and bacteria. They’re also Oeko-Tex® certified, meaning no environmentally harmful dyes were used in their production.
Colours and Design
Depending on your dome model, the panels come in either three or four flat-packed packages, each weighing no more than 10 kg. They can be easily lifted by one person and include all the tools you need, together with the assembly manual.
Because of the liquid-block technology the Hype.Wall panels repel moisture and are therefore easy to clean with water and a sponge. In case of stubborn dirt you can use a mild detergent, but don’t let them get completely wet, and never machine wash, iron or tumble dry the panels.
Hype.Wall Panels FAQs
Can I mix Hype.Wall panels with the windows?
Yes, the windows are in the front bay area so they don’t interfere with the wall panels. Plus you can remove separate Hype.Wall panels to accommodate even more window/vent panels.
Can I use Hype.Wall panels and the sunshade at the same time?
No, these features are not designed to be used simultaneously. Instead, for complete sun protection, we recommend adding privacy curtains.
Are the Hype.Wall panels fireproof?
The Hype.Wall panels are made out of fire-resistant textiles, however, you shouldn’t leave candles or fires unattended in the dome at any time.
