More than 700 gallons of TEX•COTE® products will cover the 370-foot-high structure. This includes water-based primer, TEX•COTE® 600 Smooth Coating, COOLWALL® Classic Smooth Primer and COOLWALL® SUPER-COTE™ Satin Finish ─ all going into covering the facility’s 69,000 square feet of exterior wall space.
“It’s an extraordinary structure and a huge project ─ which is pretty much what we do,” said TEX•COTE® spokesman Dick Barnes.
Across the country and around the world, the family-owned and operated TEX•COTE® is an industry leader in the research, development and manufacture of technologically advanced, sustainable architectural coatings.
Founded 57 years ago, the Panama City, Florida-based company has protected some of the world’s most prestigious buildings and landmarks ─ everything from the iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles to giant bridges, college campus buildings, major retail centers and homes from coast to coast. It’s also previously covered control towers at international airports including Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta, Orlando, Palm Beach and Memphis. Its next control tower project is scheduled in Tennessee.
At Charlotte International, the TEX•COTE® team is in the process of final inspections on the work, Barnes said, adding: “It’s looking great. Everything is being done right, as we’d expect and as we guarantee, to keep the tower and the administration building well-protected for decades.”
