Versailles Fountain of Latona (FR)

Everything together. The decision to completely restore the fountain came about as part of the large-scale construction work undertaken by the Palace of Versailles, and the restoration was carried out by Pierre André Lablaude, chief architect at the “Monuments Historiques” department for historic buildings. Due to the nature and complexity of this object, many agreements had to be made and
a lively exchange was necessary, including around the choice of waterproofing system. Sample details were reviewed in terms of their resistance and behaviour in different weather conditions. So the Triflex ProTect and Triflex ProDetail systems were selected for their respective properties and their perfect compatibility.

  • Highly resilient with dynamic crack-bridging
  • Ideal for refurbishments
