A Virtual Visit to MDG Fog & Smoke
Located in the cosmopolitan metropolis of Montreal, Canada; MDG Fog & Smoke are world leaders in providing hazers for entertainment applications. They have been manufacturing a complete line of the most reliable and durable fog and haze generators for entertainment and the industrial market since 1980. Company president Marc Gingras was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to give us a personally guided tour of the factory.
MDG began by building and selling smoke
machines for industrial and training applications. Plumbers
use them in new buildings by blocking drain pipes and then
pumping then full of smoke to search for any leaks. The
machines were also very popular with fire departments and the
military for use in crisis training applications. The
entertainment industry soon discovered that the MDG hazers
produced a superior haze with long hang times which was ideal
for use in lighting applications and of course with laser
MDG provides a complete range of hazers for the Entertainment
industry, Amusement Parks and Attractions, Special Effects for
films, Television Studios and Theatres, and laser displays.
They have systems capable of hazing anything from a small hall
to a giant stadium. All of the newer machines offer an
Automatic Purging System [APS] that insures the heating
chamber remains clean and have options such as DMX or timer
