The Eagle Yurt
If you have a passion for excellence, you'll love our Eagle Yurts
In Northwest legend, the eagle is strong, powerful, and protective. Our top-of-the-line, luxury yurt model is true to its namesake. The Eagle soars above other yurts with quality and innovative features that make up the most beautiful, safest, and hardiest yurt available.
Even better, the options to upgrade and customize your yurt are limited only by your budget and imagination! The Eagle offers the flexibility to suit your unique needs and desires.
Whether you want to get closer to nature or simply prefer the cost and efficiency of this unique structural alternative, our Eagle model is the ultimate, luxury yurt - built to be the best.
At 7′ 4″ the Eagle has one of the tallest walls in the industry, giving it a spacious and open feeling that just can’t be matched by other yurts. Better still, our tall walls allow for full size doors so you won’t have to stoop to walk into your yurt!
OurInvisiLook Picture Window is 84″ wide and 50″ high to give you the best view you can get. They are made out of 30mil InvisiLook – a scratch-resistant marine grade polymer sheet designed give you near perfect visual clarity.
InvisiLook’s 30mil thickness keeps it structurally straight for an undistorted view, even at large sizes.
Real Full Size Doors
We have a variety of door choices, including: solid wood doors for privacy; our popular half-light door; and full light doors to maximize your view and natural lighting. We also offer beautiful French door sets.
The Eagle Compression Ring
The Eagle Compression Ring is the heart of your yurt, a work of art. It combines strength and beauty in a multi-layered, laminated, solid MSR Douglas Fir wooden ring, drilled and doweled for extra strength.
Every surface is milled, sanded, and smoothed until it is beautiful to the eye and smooth to the touch. Each ring is hand crafted, perfectly round, and milled to the exact angles for a perfect fit to the rafters.
Unlike other compression rings, the internal surface is milled to a perfect circular shape to visually complement the natural shape of the yurt. There are no straight lines to distract the eye.
Unique Rainier Radial Roof Construction
Another Eagle exclusive – our roof outer membrane is cut in pie-shaped pieces with radial heat seals for a stronger roof that looks polished and will maintain a clean surface.
All of our roofs are fully sealed from the peak to the bottom of the drip-edge/valance. There is no stitching to fail in the sun and there is no possibility of leakage. The small turned hem at the very bottom is stitched with expensive Tenara thread that has a lifetime guarantee against loss of strength.
The standard roof membrane is German made structural grade 19oz vinyl coated polyester with a lacquer acrylic top coat – and it carries a 10 year warranty. You can also upgrade to a 28oz version of the same fabric with a 15 year warranty.
The Beefiest Lattice Wall System Made
Your yurt is only as strong as the 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.
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.
Reconfigurable Modular Wall System
The Eagle is the only yurt made with a modular wall system that allows you to re-configure the sections of the wall any time you feel like it.
This means you can change window positions as the seasons change to increase or decrease solar gain, and if a panel is damaged, you’ll only need to replace a small section instead of the entire exterior wall. Changing the wall panels is easy, and takes on average 30 minutes to an hour.
Each wall panel measures approximately 92″ and locks together using a unique system of heavy duty marine zippers and marine grade Velcro.
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.
Eagle Exterior Two-Tone Vinyl Wall Fabric
The Eagle exterior wall fabric has exceptional resistance to mildew and UV rays, making it the perfect choice for installations in sunny, high humidity areas.
Made with wick and craze resistant polyester weft-inserted warp knit scrim, it has a matte, linen-like finish that combines long-lasting good looks with exceptional dimensional stability and superior strength.
In our book, it is the best fabric we have seen on the outside of a yurt. We guarantee it will perform flawlessly for 5 years – or we’ll replace it!
Pursing Cable – A Rainier Innovation
The Eagle yurt pursing cable gives you the best seal available. It is an exclusive design that cinches the wall bottom under the platform to seal out weather and insects.
Our dome is made from 1/4″ thick clear Plexi-Glass.
Domes that open to allow ventilation, or a tinted version are also available.
Stainless Steel Aircraft Grade Tension Cable with Yacht Grade Fittings
Our Eagle tension cable is 1/4″ aircraft stainless steel and is the only yurt offered with yachting grade fittings.
Each cable is proof load-tested to spec and pre-stretched – with a spec tag to prove it, so you can be sure it’s up to snuff.
Army Duck Canvas Interior Wall Liner
Almost everyone has heard of Army Duck Canvas and knows it means high quality – but we take that a step further and add a Sunforger treatment to the canvas.
Sunforger makes the canvas water repellant and mold, mildew, fungi, and algae resistant – plus it’s “boat shrunk” – so that it will never shrink more than 3% over the life of the canvas.
No cotton canvas is completely 100% shrink proof, but Sunforger canvas is as close as you can get. Our Sunforger Army Duck meets the Industrial Fabric Assoc. Tent Spec. CPAI-84 adopted by many states and the Federal Government as the fire rating standard and offers a margin of safety previously unavailable in a canvas.
Wall and Roof Attachment System
Drawing from work in the marine industry, we engineered a unique system to securely attach the wall to the roof.
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 & easy attachment as the hanks are designed to twist & snap onto the cable.
The edge of the roof has a kevlar cable sewn into it using weatherproof Tenara thread – (which is a fancy name for Gortex) – and this cable uses a ratchet device to tension the roof securely around the yurt.
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.
Our rafters are treated with Verde Oil, 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.
Real Wood Clad Windows
We can make your InvisiLook windows in any quantity and almost any size that you like, but the real upgrade is our real wood clad windows.
We make a beautiful Douglas Fir encasement to hold the window, and provide additional interior shelving. Several different window sizes and options are available, including slider windows.
French Doors are available in either 48” or 60” widths and your pick of in-swing or out-swing. Both sides of the door open with a quick flick of the latch top and bottom. These doors generally consist of natural Douglas Fir wood with a window panel.
Depending on the size of the yurt you can also add more doors and glass windows. Your Rainier Yurt Rep will help you with your secondary door and glass window placement based on your needs and desires.
A beautiful entrance deserves an elegant and functional awning. Consider a custom-crafted awning for your Eagle yurt. A beautifully crafted metal and acrylic awning provides an elegant entrance to your home and shelters your guests as they enter your yurt.
The available clear, acrylic awning allows light to come in through the doorway, regardless of the weather — or choose a fabric awning to match your roof.
The awning projects 36″ outward from the door and offers 12″ coverage on each side of the door. Protect your beautiful wood frame and doors from inclement weather with a built-in gutter that captures and directs runoff.
The arm for the awning is hand crafted with the same wood we use for other wooden yurt components and attaches directly to the Eagle door frame; there is no penetration of or adhesives applied to the roof vinyl.
Three sizes are available, depending on the size of your door.
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.
