Standard Features

YurtZ by Design includes more standard features than other yurt manufacturers
  • All our domes are made of industrial strength acrylic.
  • A 6ft. diameter dome is standard in the 32ft yurt.
  • All domes open - the telescopic, stainless steel handle makes it easy to open and close for ventilation. This is not an optional extra.
  • All door glass is shatter-proof, not acrylic, and all French doors are handmade with finest quality Douglas Fir.
  • 7ft. is the standard height of all our yurts. This is not an optional extra.
  • Our exclusive, hand-sanded and stained pole rafters are stronger, and far more attractive than 2" x 4" rafters. These are standard in the largest model.

Double Coated Protective Yurt Cover

VinaGARD® is a proven, high quality and long lasting product.

  • Softer polymer coatings mean VinaGARD® fabrics resist crazing, creasing and cracking better than traditional laminated fabrics and stay softer at lower temperatures.
  • VinaGARD® covers are inherently flame retardant to meet or surpass most pertinent fire codes.
  • The exclusive textile construction includes a powerful mildew and fungus inhibitor and a wick resistant base fabric, which together combat internal and external mildew growth for long fabric life.
  • Vintex's unique extrusion coating process bonds the exclusive polymer coating to a high strength resistant textile. The surface is sealed with a cleanable topcoat, which protects the flexible barrier from the accumulation of dirt and inhibits UV light degradation.

Most of the vinyl ingredients are in fact listed by the Federal Drug Administration in the USA as safe for food contact.

You receive a 10 year pro-rated warranty on the top and side covers.
