Who we are…

Located in Calgary, Alberta, Cano Coatings has been supplying home builders with quality construction products since 2001. The company's made its first mark with an acrylic direct applied finish system — CanoClad for residential and commercial construction. This system has since been licensed to Triple S (Superior Sprayed Systems).

As the company expanded their product line from stucco, their research team worked with Calgary I-Joist manufacturer Pinkwood Ltd. to create an exclusive "protected" I-joist that could be manufactured and coated inline. The first of its kind in the world, Cano developed a coating which focused primarily on fire protection (a known weak point for wooden I-Joist). It was soon branded as "PinkShield": the colour pink was chosen in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (Prairies/NWT).

PinkShield has been approved and promoted by several high profile renovators such as Mike Holmes who has showcased PinkShield on his series "Holmes Makes it Right" as well as Scott McGillivray of "Income Property" both seen on HGTV.

PinkShield is also the coating used for Cano's fire-rated "PKboard" sheathing. PKboard has been certified to meet the standards of the 2010 Alberta Fire Code which requires exterior fire protection of adjacent buildings during construction. It has been used to protect hundreds of homes throughout Alberta and soon to be Saskatchewan.

Since 2001, Cano has grown immensely and is proud to offer a premium line of protective products to the building industry and Canadians. The companies research and development team continue to work on new coatings for both commercial and residential applications.

To date, the company offers 6 different proprietary coatings: PinkShield, CanoShield, CanoDrywall, CanoPaints, CanoCheck and CanoAirblock.

Some of these items are not stocked but can be manufactured for larger custom orders.
