Safe visiting pods for care homes
Let families meet again, safely.
Hypedome Visiting Pods
Bringing residents and their loved ones together in times of heightened infection risks.
The coronavirus outbreak has posed a set of completely new challenges on caregivers. Care homes have to minimise the risk of residents’ infections and impose strict physical-distancing measures. They also need to address the need for personal contact between the family members.
Care homes across the country have to come up with a way of allowing the residents to meet with their families, while keeping them, the staff members and other inhabitants safe.
A turn-key solution for safe, all-year meetings. Outdoors and indoors.
Hypedome Care Domes provide a dedicated and easy to sanitise solution. The strong and durable visiting pods create a comfortable environment for people to meet in, without coming into close contact or having to enter the building.
Domes feature a wheelchair accessible double entrance, polycarbonate divider wall, openable vents and can be easily heated.
They offer comfort and safety throughout the year, but especially in the colder months when flu and other viruses are more prevalent and opportunities for outdoor meetings are limited.
Visiting Pods for Outdoor and Indoor Use

“It allows us to adhere
to strict guidelines"
It's been a godsend - it's been an unbelievable success and people are queuing up to get an hour's slot with their loved one in it. It's been very emotional for family members to be able to meet up safely.

The dome is made out of 100+ solid polycarbonate panels. It comes as a complete kit for self-assembly, incl. aluminium entrance frame kit, rollable membrane zip door, anchoring kit (deck screws or ground anchoring pins), assembly toolkit, cleaning kit, etc.
Hypedome is engineered according to the norm "BS EN 13782 Temporary structure. Tents. Safety" and withstands violent winds, exceeding 71 mph / 115 km/h (11 Beaufort). They can be built in spaces exposed to strong, sustained winds as long as they are properly anchored to the ground.
Hypedome comes with a set of deck screws to anchor the dome to a wooden or composite decking. Alternatively, we can provide it with a set of steel stakes if you want to attach it directly to the ground (soil/grass/sand). Expanding bolts can be used for anchoring to concrete.
ENTRANCE & DOOR
Hypedome comes with a rollable, transparent PVC membrane door with two zips on the sides. You can easily roll it up/down to open/close the door. Extra-wide, 820mm door allows for easy wheelchair access, compliant with health & safety regulations.
Polycarbonate material used to produce Hypedome is fire classified as B, s2, d0 (difficult to ignite, limited smoke production, no drips/droplets). Reaction to fire tests were conducted based on the DIN EN 13501 standard.
The domes are designed for the self-assembly and come with a step-by-step assembly manual and tools required to build them. It takes approx. 5-6 hours for 2 people to complete the build.
Domes do not have their own power outlets, however each unit comes with an openable panel that allows you to neatly bring electric cables into the dome and still keep it completely waterproof.
The dome does not require any specific maintenance, except for the occasional checks on the tightness of bolts and screws. You can clean the dome with the regular water and mild soap with the use of the microfibre cloth to prevent scratches.
