Ritec Services protects 20,000m2 of glass with ClearShield® on the latest NCL Cruise Ship

Ritec Services just completed the protection of 20,000m2 of glass on all windows of the brand new Norwegian Joy cruise ship for Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany prior to its maiden voyage.

The team was contracted by NCL to complete a unique service that helps keeping glass on cruise ships looking like new, whilst reducing water and crew time requirements for its cleaning and maximising passenger satisfaction.

Highly trained and experienced applicators were brought in during the final phase of construction. They carried out a specialist deep clean to remove all glue, paint, silicone sealants and mineral salts deposits, regaining the ‘as-new’ appearance, sparkle and transparency of the glass.

The glass was then protected to ensure it remains that way for as long as possible. At sea, and especially during the inauguration voyage, crew members can spend less time cleaning glass, using less water doing so. Passengers can take in the amazing views.

ClearShield® protected glass no longer requires harsh and polluting chemicals for its maintenance. Ritec Services offer full training and a very effective after-care programme.

ClearShield® protected glass still looking like new 7 years later in football stadium

In 2010, Tiszta Üveg Kft installed a 105 metre long balustrade at the Videoton Football Stadium in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. All the glass sheets were protected with ClearShield® on both sides prior to installation.

7 years later, the stadium is undergoing a complete renovation. The city council asked for the balustrades to be moved to a new location.

During relocation, a simple wash with Clean-All, Ritec’s multi-purpose glass cleaner, was enough to make the glass brilliant and sparkling. The glass still looks like new today thanks to the ClearShield® protection.

Well done to Tiszta Üveg Kft and their team for this project proving that the award-winning technology always passes the test of time, and saves money by not having to replace the glass.

If you would also like to become an applicator of the ClearShield Eco-System™, offering unique ‘non-stick’ solutions for glass surface renovation and protection in the factory prior to installation or on-site after the glass has already been installed, contact Ritec today at

A staggering 6,000m2 to date of ClearShield® protected glass in buses ensure easy maintenance and clear views for passengers in New Zealand

Specialist Glass Cleaning and Protection, licensed applicators of ClearShield Glass Auckland, renovated and/or protected glass surfaces on 230 buses for Go Bus and coach companies in just over three years. Why? The reasons for this huge success are best described by members of the coach operators themselves:

‘We’ve had several companies come in and say they could fix the scale on the buses, they all say they can do it, no one has, until Pete and Heather [of Specialist Glass Cleaning and Protection] came along and it’s just a perfect job.’
– Peter Lowe, Go Bus Hamilton

‘It is just phenomenal the way the vehicles look now, you can see right through the buses. Easy to clean and maintain.’
– Stephen Thorpe, Go Bus Tauranga

‘We have struggled with our glass on our buses for many years. This is the first summer of operation that we have had zero complaints from our customers about the glass.’
– Rebecca Clifton, Hobbiton Movie Set Tours, Matamata

‘Brilliant job. Glass looks amazing. What a difference. Driving is so much easier with clear clean glass.’
– Ian MacDonald, Abbotts Coaches, Auckland


The ClearShield Eco-System™ system offers proven solutions to restore the ‘as-new’ appearance of glass surfaces in buses that have lost their clarity and transparency. It then keeps them looking that way with the durable ClearShield® ‘non-stick’ protection, and an easy, effective and environmentally responsible maintenance regime.

This results in much improved visibility for the bus and coach drivers, greater satisfaction for passengers and tourists who enjoy clear visibility and can now take better quality photos, and an improved presentation and image for the bus service operator.

The glass is much easier to maintain, and water blasters and bus washers may be used without affecting the durability of the ClearShield® protection. An unexpected benefit came from an observed reduction in the required removal and replacement of anti-graffiti films used on the inside of the glass. Cleaner and clearer glass indeed seems to make it less prone to be etched with graffiti, further reducing costs.

Peter and Heather Wavish from Specialist Glass Cleaning and Protection say: ‘Glass on the Go Bus existing fleet was first restored to its ‘as-new’ appearance before the application of the durable ClearShield® protection. Some windows were badly etched. We knew the restoration process would be successful but we were concerned about the glass and how it would appear. We are happy to say the results far exceeded the bus companies’ expectations.

All new buses are now being protected as standard, and we are contracted to carry out a maintenance service on the glass every six months.’

The Go Bus Fleet must be presentable at all times. There are very strict requirements in the contracts that must be adhered to, and which are critical for their renewal as well as obtaining new ones. The unique and award-winning system provides the solution for the exterior glass.

And the success continues. Peter and Heather are in discussions to increase the number of protected buses with Go Bus by 146 over the next 12 months, and are looking to bring on other bus companies on board. City Councils themselves are considering specifying ClearShield® on urban fleets.
