des Congrès in Montreal is Renovated with DFI Nanocoating
The city of Montréal, Canada has recently started a glazing
renovation of its landmark convention center, Palais des Congrès,
in downtown Montreal.
highly reputable Palais des Congrès, which hosted 207 events
and brought in 660,000 visitors, generating economic spin-offs of
more than $200 million in 2005 alone, has been renovated with 30,000
square feet of high performance sealed glass units protected with
Diamon Fusion International's (DFI) low-maintenance nanocoating
Diamon-Fusion®, supplied by DFI's Canadian Licensee PRELCO,
as one of the building's special features showcased in this renovation.
The Palais des Congrès covers 200,000 square feet of multifunctional
spaces. Diamon-Fusion was specified by architectural plans to be
added to the building for easy-to-clean purposes and added brilliance.
The signature of the new architecture clearly concretizes the ideals
of light and transparency.
50-year company based in Rivere-du-Loup, Quebec, is a Canadian manufacturer
of specialty glass for architectural design, industrial, and transportation
"This is a landmark building in Montreal and we are very proud
to supply the glass treated with DFI's nano-coating which will clearly
enhance the complex and protect it against adverse weathering conditions,"
said Bill Marchitello, director of marketing and business development
"Every time our coating is specified in any architectural project,
we know the building will get tangible benefits; but being selected
and having it applied at the Palais des Congrès in Montreal
is certainly very special," said Guillermo Seta, DFI's vice
president and executive director of DFI Global Operations.
