The Azenco K-BANA™ is a modular aluminum cabana system that can be customized to bring luxurious appointments to residential backyards, resort pool decks, restaurant rooftop decks, and more. With innumerable unique footprints able to be crafted from its modular 8×8, to 10×10, to 12×12 square foot sections, the K-BANA™ fits uniquely-shaped outdoor spaces of just about any size. Its customizable features allow customers to choose from manual louvered roof sections or fixed insulated roofing, static or sliding louvered walls, and includes a floor system ready to fit with the cabana’s surrounds seamlessly. With a hidden internal gutter system, the K-BANA™ ensures guests gathering for dinner on the patio or relaxing poolside are kept dry during passing showers and cool under the heat of the sun’s rays. Lightweight yet sturdy, the K-Bana™ is a great option for creating outdoor living spaces on elevated decks where structural weight is limited, and its unique design categorizes it as “outdoor furniture” in most jurisdictions, which means it can often be erected without complicated permitting  system.
