The brand new Cosmopolitan hotel complex in Las Vegas opened this week among lots of fanfare. Less known is how the Park Sentry® product, Sentry's newest, patented column protector, made for parking garage applications, was a major part of this multi-billion dollar project on South Las Vegas Boulevard. The new multi-level parking structure is located under the high rise structure, reportedly only the second time this has been done. Park Sentry surrounds thousands of structural columns, offering an attractive impact resistant layer around those columns.
A special fire-resistant product was developed and used on this huge structure. This product offers all of the advantages of the original product but can be used in situations where the fire resistance is important. The Flame Spread on this material is well under the tested limit for these applications. In this building the product is molded in a unique speckled gray that makes the resulting column look strong, while offering its padded protection. This new fire rated product can now be ordered in our standard yellow and black.
