The ClearShield Eco-System™ transforms all types of new or existing glass into a higher value product with low-maintenance performance. Working like ‘non-stick’ cookware, the ClearShield Eco-System™ upgrades unprotected glass into ClearShield Eco-Glass™, an easy clean and anti-microbial surface that maintains its ‘as-new’ sparkling appearance for much longer.

The ClearShield® protection on the surface of glass in windows, conservatories, rooflights and glass roofs saves cleaning time, effort and cost, ensures cleaner glass without the pain, and maintains a pristine appearance! The award-winning protection also offers huge benefits on building façades, shower enclosures, splashbacks and sandblasted and other decorative glass.


Glass fabricators and processors differentiate, add value to their product range and gain profits upgrading unprotected glass into ClearShield Eco-Glass™ with minimal start-up costs. The system avoids the cost of stocking a new type of glass; Ritec’s simple added-value packages enable unprotected glass to be upgraded to ClearShield Eco-Glass™ in the factory to almost all types of glass.

Keep Safe and Legal

ClearShield® remains the safest glass surface protection technology available in storage and usage as it is not classified as hazardous. A full range of application equipment caters for all levels of production. In addition, ClearShield® does not have a shelf-life, avoiding quality issues and unnecessary wasted material.

For installers, the Ritec One Stop Solutions™ concept presents new business opportunities for glass surface renovation, ‘non-stick’ protection and maintenance on-site. Because the ClearShield Eco-System™ offers solutions for all glass in the home, external and internal, installers can also renovate and protect a client’s windows, patio doors, conservatories, solar panels, shower enclosures, kitchen splashbacks and balustrades.


Ritec invites visitors to stand 4A-305 on the UK Pavilion to find out more about their products. In addition, Ritec’s Marketing Partners from the Netherlands and Germany – Ritec Services and Flextec GmbH respectively – will also be in attendance. Stephen Byers, Managing Director of Ritec International comments: “We look forward to establishing new relationships with Fensterbau Show visitors. If you are unable to come along to the exhibition but are interested in Ritec’s new and exciting developments, please contact us and we’ll be delighted to discuss them with you.”

Glass in seaside residences loses its clarity, becomes difficult to clean and stains over time due to the sea spray and other airborne contamination.

The ClearShield Eco-System™ upgrades the glass surface to a ‘non-stick’, easy-to-clean, protected surface that ensures glass maintains its original sparkle, and stays easy to clean and keep clean.

Long-Standing Ritec ClearShield Customer Multiple Finalists at G17 Awards

Ritec International are delighted to announce that long-standing ClearShield® customer, Go Glass Ltd, have reached not one but two finals at this year’s G17 Awards. This Cambridge-based company is shortlisted for Glass Company of the Year and Unsung Hero at this prestigious event.

Since 1978, Go Glass served the local area with high quality glass and mirror products. Today, they remain a family-run business and Clive Sparkes and sisters Tracy Saunders (Sales and Marketing) and Emma Sparkes (Sales and Specification) are dedicated to offering customers a range of innovative and exciting products designed to add warmth and individuality to any home or workplace.

Go Glass became a customer of award-winning Ritec ClearShield® in 2003. Applied in their own factory, Ritec ClearShield® is a durable ‘non-stick’ protection solution against dirt and fingermarks, a particular problem for sandblasted glass. This is a popular option amongst Go Glass’s customers that like their glass to benefit from low-maintenance, easy clean and anti-microbial properties that look like new for longer.

The Glass Company of the Year nomination has come at a good time as Go Glass are approaching its 40th anniversary. Tracy says, “It is great that our small talented Go Glass team have been recognised for their hard work and commitment over the last 40 years. Led by our Director Clive, the design and production team hold NVQs from Level 2 to 4 and utilise both traditional methods and modern day technology to produce some great bespoke glass design work for both domestic and commercial customers.”

Clive is well-respected in the glass industry, exhibiting his work at Glasstec, Düsseldorf, the world’s largest glass exhibition and has designed glasswork for clients such as the BBC, BAFTA and Hampton Court Palace. His performance and achievements have earned him a nomination for the G17 Unsung Hero award. For example, he has designed and painstakingly produced three glass sculptures for auction in aid of CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families. The first two sculptures, a Ducati 996 sportsbike and Lewis Hamilton’s 2009 F1 car, were full-size original replicas and already raised thousands for the charity. The latest sculpture is called ‘Pushing the Limits’, a full size glass athlete, and bids are now being accepted on


Clive says, “Being shortlisted for the G17 Unsung Hero Award is a great honour, the glass sculpture work we auctioned for CLIC Sargent charity has already raised over £10,000 and we hope to continue to raise even more for the charity with our glass runner.  Our thanks also to Ritec for their help and support with these projects over the years.”

The G17 Awards event will be held on 17 November 2017 at the London Hilton on Park Lane. For more information about Go Glass, visit
