Resort cabanas are an ideal way to add value to your pool, patio, and beach amenities. From the comfort of your guests to an up-sell opportunity on the property, there are many ways cabanas can benefit your resort. However, especially in tropical locations, frequent wind and rain storms can leave property owners wondering whether cabanas are a viable option. When it comes to areas prone to inclement weather, choosing the right cabana design becomes especially important. After all, both your financial investment and guests’ safety are at risk.
There are many options to consider before investing in resort cabanas. In our last post, we discussed the difference between commercial cabanas and retail cabanas. In this post, we’ll explore the difference between “engineered” and “non-engineered” resort cabanas.
Unlike commercial versus retail cabanas, the difference between engineered and non-engineered cabanas does not necessarily mean high-quality versus lower quality. The difference resides in the structure’s ability to handle significant weather. Engineered resort cabanas are specially designed to provide the durability and stability necessary for high winds and significant rains. Depending on the design of the product, engineered resort cabanas will be able to withstand wind-loads between 80 and 180 mph, and they resist sagging when exposed to torrential downpours.
Non-engineered cabanas can still be superior quality, but they are not appropriate for powerful weather conditions. Properties that purchase non-engineered cabanas must be prepared to remove the fabric coverings in the event of an approaching storm and adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines.
At Resort Cabanas, we offer both engineered and non-engineered resort cabana options, and our team is trained to help you decide which cabana styles address your unique needs.
