The DOME is a modular, unitized system specifically designed for interim and emergency housing. It combines all essential furnishings found in a standard sleeping area into a single 2’ wide by 6’ deep by 6’ tall unit. Conceived as a cross between a Murphy Bed, a wardrobe, and camping tent, the units allow operators to combine or eliminate elements drawn from each of these objects to configure the option that works best with their security needs while simultaneously maximizing privacy for residents.

Each Dome includes lockable storage, a bed frame, an electrical outlet, and an aisle light. A tent-like canopy can also be added giving residents full visual privacy.
