Event Structures for Casinos — The Move to Tension Fabric Buildings

Alternative building solutions are becoming increasingly popular for event venues such as sports centers, convention centers, concert halls, and casinos. Fabric buildings in particular offer many benefits, and are well suited for casinos looking to expand their services by offering various events. 

Today’s tensioned fabric buildings are modern facilities that are custom-designed and engineered to meet both local and international building codes for safety. They also provide a weatherproof enclosure, meet fire safety standards, and keep large numbers of people safe and comfortable year-round.

WeatherPort® Shelter Systems (WeatherPort) provides high-quality fabric buildings that are reliable and versatile. 

Our Jubilee Series fabric structure features an optional drapery system to create a high-end venue for outdoor weddings and reception space.

Temperature-Controlled Casino Facilities  

The perception of typical party tents — where guests are forced to linger in the cold, drafty outdoors during weddings and receptions for outdoor parties — is a common one. WeatherPort provides fabric solutions that are leaps and bounds better than a standard party tent.  

Some of our models are designed to be open-air, which works great for locations that have generally higher temperatures. However, we offer a large assortment of fabric buildings and event structures that can be completely enclosed. Our structures can also be designed with insulation and HVAC systems needed to ensure the comfort of your guests while maximizing all interior space. 

Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) is a prime concern for casino owners, particularly in venues where smoking is allowed. Our fabric structures are designed to accommodate HVAC features as well as electrical and insulation systems that’ll help meet health and energy-efficient building standards for air quality, in addition to minimizing any unpleasant odors. As a result, guests will remain comfortable and stay longer, ultimately growing your profit.

Audio Advantages of Fabric Buildings for Casino Events

Another concern of those who have never chosen fabric structures as an alternative to traditional building is acoustics. Fabric structures have acoustical advantages over conventional buildings, which is why they’re commonly used as concert venues and outdoor stage covers.

In casinos, the noises from people and gaming machines is overwhelming — especially in large spaces with hard and angular surfaces to reflect sound waves. Our tensioned membranes and sound-absorbing insulation systems help to absorb and reduce noise levels.

Deployable Fabric Facilities for Casino Events

Casinos need reliable, durable, and portable building solutions to fit their fast-paced event needs. 

Fast construction is a prime benefit of fabric structures from WeatherPort. Another key benefit is the ability to assemble and install WeatherPort event structures with minimal skills, unlike with conventional or other prefabricated buildings, including “instant structures” that require months of construction. 

Fabric buildings from WeatherPort are easily disassembled and relocated to a different area of the casino as needs change.

And since they’re able to be set up in a fraction of the time, your casino business will experience very minimal downtime during assembly and installation, resulting in a higher return on investment.

Additionally, our fabric buildings use lightweight, durable steel or aluminum frame systems that can anchor into virtually any level or type of surface. This gives them the strength to sustain excessive wind and snow loads, as well as to support lighting and sound equipment. 

Unlike metal buildings with steel sheeting, fabric structures from WeatherPort can be designed to offer a higher resistance to corrosion from outside elements like salt air or sea spray thanks to our optional, in-house powder coating.

Customizable Fabric Buildings for Casinos

WeatherPort fabric buildings are also customizable, featuring expansion capabilities you can utilize as your casino grows as well as add-on product features. 

For example, partition systems help to create different entertainment spaces. This is helpful for security personnel, or space for catering services to prepare and plate meals for large events.

Our tensioned fabric also permits more creative freedom for designers than that of traditional party tents. You can give your casino or event center a unique look that stands out with a wide selection of colors, custom graphics, artwork and logos to represent your brand and business.

Or if you’re looking to incorporate more natural light in your casino to offset the artificial lighting on signs and displays, WeatherPort offers translucent skylight material that allows diffused sunlight in during daylight hours. You can also utilize side panels and windows to create a more comfortable environment for patrons to game, dine, and socialize.
