Comparison To Pacific Yurts

Before looking at the dollar comparisons below we would ask that you read what we feel is an important bit of information when comparing yurt manufacturers.

Our standard yurts already include many ‘extras’ that other leading companies require you to purchase in order to be ‘extreme weather’ ready and many of our materials used are of superior quality.

  • Nomad Shelter uses Duro- last Roofing as a cover material on the whole yurt for the standard price. There is a 15 year warranty on this product. It will not mildew or sustain a flame. It’s the toughest you can get! Nomad Shelter will custom order silicon fabrics for those opposed to polyvinyl. Other companies use Duro-last as an optional extra for the top only.
  • The Nomad Shelter Duro-last covers have a fitted eve with a rain diverter sewn in for standard price. The Nomad Shelter yurt covers have facings that cover all the joins where there can be gaps for drafts and debris. That includes facings covering the join between the wall and the top, over the door and around the windows. This makes our yurts warmer. Other companies charge extra for the rain diverter and they have a gathered weld tucked eve that creates gaps where debris or wind driven weather could enter.
  • Nomad Shelter’s heavy insulating liner is the warmest available.
  • The Nomad Shelter compression ring is a layer thicker and a foot wider than other companies and the join to the rafter is a wooden join. Other companies use a little metal pin to join the rafter to the compression ring. This type of join creates structural twisting. To stop that torsion other companies drill holes in the rafters and string wire through in a zig zag type pattern. This affects the load strength of the rafter. To compensate for this they offer a winter package for extra snow loads that equals the loads that many of our sizes come with for the standard price. Their wind load package includes a 2'x4' under every rafter which adds significantly to the shipping weight, they do that because their lattice is mainly aesthetic and not structural.
  • Nomad Shelter’s lattice comes standard 1"x2” lath Alaskan White Spruce. The lattice on the other yurt companies is 1/4"x1” lath. There is no extra charge on a Nomad Shelter yurt for a 7’ wall on the 20 foot yurt and larger. Other companies charge for this.
  • Nomad Shelter skylights have cedar mullions for bracing and an optional stove stack bracket. They are proven in 100 mph winds. They come standard with a lever action vent. The standard skylight from other yurt companies is a single layer Plexiglas dome without a frame.
  • Nomad Shelter door frames have 2’x6’ front panels, with a metal reinforced headers and beveled thresh holds to angle water away from the jam. Other companies have 2'x4' front panels without a reinforced header and no beveled thresh holds.

 

If you add up all the extras you need to make the other yurts close to as strong and durable as the Nomad Shelter yurt the price of Nomad Shelter yurts is the same as other companies or less.

We design for durability and strength.
