Engineering and Materials

Come On Mother Nature. Do Your Worst.

One of the major Colorado Yurt Company differences is our commitment to engineering. Our construction and design have been tested and certified by an outside engineering firm so you can be confident your yurt will withstand heavy snows and strong winds.

Wood – the yurt door, door jamb and compression ring are clear, vertical grain Douglas fir. Rafters and lattice are machine stress rated (msr) lumber in spruce, pine or fir. All wood components are sanded to exact specifications for the perfect fit and elimination of fabric-to-wood friction points. Finished with a protective stain and sealer.

Fabrics – with two types of yurt roof fabrics and three wall fabric types, as well as 35 mix-and-match color options, you can choose a combination that will blend with your environment or boldly stand out from the crowd! Request fabric samples.

Hardware – every bolt, nut, washer, plate, and mount is selected to meet exacting specifications and the appropriate application – stainless, galvanized or powder coated – to ensure your yurt will stand the test of time.

Engineering – we work with structural engineers to develop the strongest yurts in the business. That’s why ski resorts from around the US depend on yurts from the Colorado Yurt Company. Contact our office for our engineering data.
