SEFAR® Architecture TENARA® Fabric Provides Elegant All-Weather Solution at Las Vegas Icon

Retractable fabric canopy transforms Budweiser Beer Park on the Las Vegas Strip

Publish Date: Wednesday, March 07, 2018

DEPEW, NY…The 24/7 energy and vibrancy of Las Vegas, the Entertainment Capital of the World, invites patrons to enjoy all it has to offer in absolute comfort and luxury. The recently completed Budweiser Beer Park — the Strip’s first rooftop bar and grill at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino — offers visitors just that with its elegant retractable fabric canopy featuring SEFAR® Architecture TENARA® Fabric.

The canopy creates a space with optimal adaptability, a minimalist aesthetic, and year-round, all-weather use of the venue.

Las Vegas experiences, on average, approximately 300 days of sunshine per year. Combined with Beer Park’s western orientation, Beer Park required a solution offering shade during the day’s peak, and to ensure the area remained occupied in the event of rain. Additionally, it is situated at a highly-trafficked point on the Main Strip with a view of the famous Bellagio fountain. It was paramount that the canopy material be visually stunning.

"TENARA Fabric allows guests to enjoy the ultimate experience of the Strip, protected against the strong sun. Additionally, the material greatly increases thermal comfort for customers,” says Peter Katcha, Director of North American Sales for SEFAR Architecture. “Visually, we wanted to help create an iconic presence, befitting the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.”

The 3,444 square-foot canopy utilizes SEFAR Architecture’s TENARA 4T20HF fabric —woven from ePTFE fabric and fluoropolymer-coated, making the PTFE inherent in the material. As a result, TENARA can easily be folded and unfolded in the retractable application without damaging its PTFE surface. It is also warranted to fold countless times without losing strength.

In terms of durability, TENARA Fabric is inert to UV rays and provides extremely high resistance to material degradation, far surpassing all other materials of its kind: it offers the industry’s only 15-year replacement warranty. TENARA Fabric is ASTM E84 – Class A fire-rated, making it an ideal canopy material for public spaces.

Architects from Gensler Chicago and Gensler Las Vegas collaborated on the project. The Uni-Systems En-Fold® extra-wide retractable canopy system utilizes TENARA Fabric, deploying and retracting Beer Park’s temporary roofing on an as-needed basis. The general contractor and installer was Austin General Contracting Inc, and GLR Engineers were the Engineer of Record.

Budweiser Beer Park opened in February 2016.
