Plastic Domes & Hemispheres
Forgot your geometry lessons? That’s okay, most people have. A hemisphere is only half a sphere. A globe or sphere requires two hemispheres. A dome is usually shallower than a hemisphere. At California Quality Plastics we make them all!
We stock hemispheres – Click To Shop In Stock Hemispheres – and our stock plastic hemispheres are fabricated from 1/4″ thick, clear acrylic (The 4″ hemisphere is fabricated from 1/8″ thick, clear acrylic.). As the plastic is stretched to make the hemisphere, the leading edge of the hemisphere will shrink to about 3/16″ thick, and the apex (top) may be as thin as 1/16″
Domes are made per order to your particular depth. Please use our RFQ Form to request a quote for a custom dome.
If you are planning to make your hemispheres into a sphere or globe, please let our salespeople know in advance or visit our plastic spheres page for more information.
Don’t see your plastic dome size? Don’t worry: CQP can custom fabricate acrylic hemispheres and plastic domes up to 92-inches in diameter.
