Event Structures for Casinos — The Move to Tension Fabric Buildings

Alternative building solutions such as the high-quality WeatherPort® outdoor event facility from Alaska Structures® provide many benefits. They are equally reliable and versatile, and are becoming increasingly popular for event venues:

Fabric buildings in particular are well suited for casinos looking to expand their services and event opportunities. 

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.

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

Temperature-Controlled Facilities in Casinos

These days, typical party tents don’t measure up to needs. One common problem is how guests are forced to linger in the cold, drafty outdoors at weddings and receptions during outdoor parties. WeatherPort provides fabric solutions that are far better than a standard party tent.  

Some of our models are designed to be open-air, which is ideal for locations that have higher temperatures on average. We also offer a large assortment of fabric buildings and event structures that can be completely enclosed. Our structures are also able to accommodate insulation and Heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems that ensure the comfort of your guests while maximizing interior space. 

HVAC is a prime concern for casino owners, particularly in venues where smoking is permitted. Our fabric structures can also accommodate electrical systems that help meet health and energy-efficient building standards for air quality — in addition to minimizing any unpleasant odors. As a result, guests remain comfortable and want to stay longer, which ultimately increases your event’s profit.

Audio Advantages of Fabric Buildings for Events at Casinos

Acoustics is sometimes a concern for those who are unfamiliar with fabric structures as an alternative to traditional building. However, fabric buildings have acoustical advantages over conventional buildings. This is why they are 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, angular surfaces that reflect sound waves. Our tensioned membranes and sound-absorbing insulation systems absorb and reduce noise levels significantly.

Deployable Fabric Facilities for Casino Events

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

A prime benefit of fabric structures from WeatherPort is their fast construction. Conventional or prefabricated buildings, as well as “instant structures” often require months of construction. However, you can assemble and install our event structures in minimal time with minimal skill.

Your casino business will experience very minimal downtime during assembly and installation, resulting in a higher return on investment.

Fabric buildings from WeatherPort are also easily disassembled if you need to relocate to a different area of the casino as needs change.

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

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

Customizable Fabric Buildings for Casinos

WeatherPort fabric buildings are highly customizable. They feature expansion capabilities that allow your casino to grow while incorporating several add-on product features. 

For example, partition systems allow you to create different entertainment spaces within a single facility. These separate spaces can be used as a private areas for security personnel, or even 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 that 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 diffuses sunlight during daylight hours. You can also utilize side panels and windows to create a more comfortable environment for patrons to game, dine and socialize.
