Diamon-Fusion Secures Bid on Coating Project
for New York High-Rise
October 12, 2010
International Inc. announced that along with partner, New York Poly
Steel, it has secured a bid for a large-scale coating project for
the original Tiffany & Co. building at 15 Union Square Street in
New York. The glass was fabricated by Saint-Gobain Glass of France
and the project will utilize the Diamon-Fusion coating on more than
700 different-sized insulating glass units.
"Every piece of glass on the building is a unique size to fit a
unique aperture in the facade, creating a distinctive challenge
in maintaining the appearance of the glass units overtime," says
Carl Christ, director of on-site services for Diamon-Fusion International.
"By treating the glass facade with Diamon-Fusion coating, we are
reducing the need for cleaning and protecting the glass from harsh
"We are very excited to begin this partnership with Diamon-Fusion
International with a historic and iconic property such as 15 Union
Square West," adds Chris Pearson, owner of New York Poly Steel.
"We see an enormous potential for the Diamon-Fusion coating to address
the needs of architects, building owners and property managers within
the tri-state market and look forward to working with DFI again
many times in the future."
The work for the 15 Union Square Street project is set to be completed
by the end of this month.
