Overview


The Raven Yurt

Simple, Tough, Resilient

When we designed The Raven, we set out to build a yurt with the same standard of quality as our premium model at a competitive price. We sacrificed the unnecessary expenses, but kept the high quality and durability that Rainier products are known for.

The Raven is the perfect economical living option or comfortable guest housing for state parks and camps. The Raven fully conforms to International Building Code specifications. 7'-4" tall walls allow for full size doors, and larger sizes easily accommodate bunk beds or lofts.

Feature for feature, we believe the Raven represents the best value in the marketplace. With Rainier’s world class manufacturing techniques, state of the art equipment, and the best warranty available, the result speaks for itself.

Standard Features

Standard 7'-4" Wall Height

The Raven features 7'-4" tall walls - the tallest standard walls in the industry! The lattice wall allows for a full size door, and larger sizes boast enough head room for bunk beds or a loft.

Door

A full size, zero maintenance fiberglass door with thermal pane glass window options comes standard in our Raven model.

Door size is 36″ wide x 80″ high. You won't have to duck to walk into your yurt!

Dome

Our dome is made from 1/4″ thick clear Plexi-Glass.

Domes that open to allow ventilation, or a tinted version are also available.

Standard Windows

The Raven comes with two windows, 48″ wide by 48″ high. Ours are the largest standard windows in the industry.

Each window has three parts:

  • A sewn in fiberglass screen
  • A completely removable window made from 20mil clear vinyl that is UV resistant, flame retardant, and secured with 2″ marine grade Velcro.
  • A weather flap secured by marine grade zippers in a unique flap to protect them from UV degradation.

Roof

The Raven roof comes with a 7 year warranty.

Constructed from 18oz vinyl coated polyester with a clear acrylic topcoat to prevent out gassing.

This structural fabric is UV and mildew resistant, easy to clean and designed to last.

All seams are made with our computer controlled RF (Radio Frequency) welder for the most accurate and reliable seal.

Compression Ring

The Raven compression ring is strong and elegant.

It is built from laminated pieces of MSR 2400 Douglas Fir and through-bolted for extra strength.

The inner ring remains faceted for a unique visual look.

Aircraft Grade Tension Cable

If this thing breaks, you have a big problem - that’s why this cable is rated to a breaking strength of 7,000 pounds.

Made from 1/4″ galvanized aircraft grade steel, the cable is pre-cut to the proper circumference and joined to a continuous loop using 2 ton aluminum ferrules.

Wall Fabric Construction

The outer walls of the Raven are constructed from 15oz vinyl laminated polyester to make it strong and easy-to-clean. It is waterproof, mildew & soil resistant and fire retardant.

The inner wall is lined with a lightweight 6oz polyester tenting fabric treated to be water repellant and flame & mildew retardant.

Wall and Roof Attachment System

Using a stainless steel cable that is sealed into a flap section of the roof as an attachment point, the wall is hung with nylon “jib hanks.”

This makes for a quick and easy attachment as the hanks twist and snap onto the cable. The edge of the roof has a kevlar cable sewn into it and this cable uses a ratchet device to tension the roof securely around the yurt.

Rafters

Clear, hand-selected, MSR 2400 kiln dried Douglas Fir. Rafters are sanded and finished to take the greatest advantage of the warm, natural beauty of the wood.

Each rafter is individually treated with Verde Oil. Verde is the first of its kind. It is a 100% sustainable, petroleum free oil finish with no heavy metal compounds, no odor, and no offensive fumes. Verde is a ZERO-VOC finish made with new age vegetable ester solvents, tough plant based resins, and high quality Brazilian rosewood oil - and it offers 99% UV protection for wood in interior and exterior applications.

The Beefiest Lattice Wall System Made

Your yurt is only as strong as its weakest link - the lattice wall that supports the entire structure. That’s why we build the thickest, beefiest, baddest lattice in the industry!

Crafted with clear, mixed grain, kiln dried, hand sanded lengths of the finest 3/4″ by 1-1/2″ northwest Douglas Fir that are treated with Verde Oil.

Custom Upgrades

Roof

The Raven roof upgrade comes with a 15 year warranty.

Constructed from 28oz vinyl coated polyester with a clear acrylic topcoat to prevent out gassing.
This structural fabric is UV and mildew resistant, easy to clean and designed to last.

All seams are made with our computer controlled RF (Radio Frequency) welder for the most accurate & reliable seal.

Rainier Reflective Insulation

Rainier uses the top grade of low-e reflective insulation.

It is manufactured using a polyethlyene foam core with scrim reinforced double sided aluminum facings to reflect heat in both directions - that keeps you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

According to the specs, it reflects up to 97% of radiant energy and can have an R value of up to 11.

That R number can be misleading, though. The insulation we use is 1/4″ thick, so it will not work as well as insulation that is 6″ thick, no matter how high-tech the reflective part is.

Engineered for High Wind and Snow Loads

Rainier Yurts are built tough - no extra charge.

All Rainier Yurts are designed for a minimum wind load of 95 miles per hour and can achieve snow loads up to 280 pounds per square foot.

If you need help determining your needs or require a snow load greater than what you see available, contact us. We’ve built yurts as large as 33’ to meet a 169 pound per square foot snow load requirement in Alaska.

Windows

We can make additional windows in almost any size or quantity.
