351, St. John’s, Newfoundland

Contego Fire Barrier with Trendex Construction and one of Canada’s Premier Developers, East Port Properties, was proud to collaborate on this architectural gem located in the beautiful City of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.

When you apply Contego Firebarrier Intumescent Latex Paint to virtually any substrate you can rest assured that you’ve got the best in fire protection. III Fifty One Water Street has over 30,000 Square feet of Structural Steel beams, columns, and decking protected with Contego High Solids Formula, designed to shield against the most severe cold temperatures and defend against any type of precipitation.  It was the ideal solution for the seasons on the St. John’s, NL Pacific Ocean harbor front.

We invite you to look closer at the building that is bringing a whole new energy to downtown St John’s. While architecturally designed to carry on the long-standing heritage of Water Street charm, III Fifty One (www.threefiftyone.ca) incorporates the best of today’s newest technologies, including the first to be heated and cooled by seawater. This stunning new development includes an innovative six-story, 168,000-square-foot office tower above prime retail and commercial space, and a 445-car parking area, including 245 public parking spaces.

Intumescent fire barriers are nothing new, but Contego Passive Fire Barrier Latex represents a quantum leap forward in terms of quality, versatility, affordability and fire safety—all in one truly impressive fire proofing product.

When exposed to fire, Contego fire retardant coatings expand to form a tough char barrier that fire cannot penetrate. Deprived of fuel, the fire quickly dies. Contego intumescent paint not only helps prevent fires, it minimizes deadly smoke production, one of the leading causes of fatalities in residential and commercial fires.

 A special thanks to East Port Properties (www.eastportprop.com) for partnering with Contego on this project, the dedication to detail, and innovative solutions on this project.
