ClearShield® Proves Real Worth for Country Club Apartments in Mexico


Transparencia en Servicios – the official Marketing Partner of Ritec International Limited for Mexico – renovated and protected glass at Bosque Real Country Club in Huixquilucan, Mexico City.

Bosque Real Country Club is a picturesque complex that includes 9- and 18-hole golf courses, shopping mall, hospital and many luxury villas and high-rise apartments. From 2005-09, Bosque Real was the venue for the MasterCard Classic, an annual tournament for professional female golfers on the LPGA Tour.

For such a prestigious location, a pristine appearance has to be maintained at all times. Unfortunately keeping the glass looking like new was difficult: rain, pollution and dirt all combine to ruin the visibility and appearance of glass. Water from sprinkler systems also constantly landed on the glass, further compounding the problem as over time, it leaves unsightly water marks. With glass cleaning becoming less and less effective, Transparencia en Servicios stepped in to resolve the problem.


Transparencia en Servicios provides an on-site service to renovate, protect and maintain glass with the Ritec ClearShield Eco-System®. Once ordinary glass is renovated to an ‘as-new’ appearance, it is then applied with award-winning ClearShield® glass surface treatment, upgrading the glass to ClearShield Eco-Glass®. This higher quality of glass is ‘non-stick’ and always easier to clean and keep clean. Its stain-resistant properties maintain optimum visibility and clarity, ensuring a longer-lasting pristine appearance, and the frequency of cleaning is typically halved. Owners of properties with newly-treated glass just love the results that ClearShield® brings!


Although Transparencia en Servicios treated window and balustrade glass in a number of apartments within the Bosque Real Country Club complex, the ClearShield Eco-System® works on any glass, interior or exterior, old or new. With almost 40 years of track records, glass treated with ClearShield® is proven to be an economical and durable alternative to replace glass that can no longer be cleaned effectively.

Transparencia en Servicios specialise in the on-site application of the award-winning ClearShield Eco-System® to renovate and protect existing glass. The System is tried and tested over extended periods of time for all types of glass (new or old, exterior or interior) in all types of locations (urban, countryside, coastal) and in all types of environmental conditions (hot, cold, dry, humid, windy, sandy). Glass treated with the ClearShield Eco-System® becomes ClearShield Eco-Glass® that is ‘non-stick’ and easier to clean and keep clean. Because it resists staining and discolouration, the glass looks pristine for longer.

The types of projects Transparencia en Servicios completed include glass in private residences, balustrades and building façades. In all instances, the glass has been transformed to an ‘as-new’ appearance but without the financial expense and inconvenience associated with replacing glass. The newly-upgraded ClearShield Eco-Glass® will protect the glass from future staining and will be much easier to maintain; typically the frequency of cleaning is halved.

Ritec International SafePQQ-Accredited for Greater Supply Chain Transparency


It gives Ritec International great pleasure to be awarded SafePQQ accreditation a year after its introduction by Alcumus SafeContractor, a leading third-party accreditation scheme.

SafePQQ is an extension of the SafeContractor health and safety contractor management system and provides organisations with greater visibility of their supply chain compliance. It is an online product built to include the common question sets defined within PAS91, a standardised pre-qualification questionnaire.

Only contractors with the SafeContractor accreditation are eligible for SafePQQ and submit their details once a year. SafePQQ collects and verifies information including financial data, environmental management, quality management, equality, modern slavery, anti-bribery and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The scheme gives businesses the confidence that they have the most up to date information on a company’s supply chain compliance, helping them make informed decisions on procurement choices.

For Ritec, being SafePQQ accredited means it can demonstrate that the company is a safe, ethical and sustainable one to work with through the SafePQQ verification badge.

Martin Burkett AIIRSM, Ritec’s Production Manager, says: “Being SafePQQ Verified means as a supplier, we share our values with customers. In conjunction with SafeContractor, SafePQQ aligns the Health and Safety module and other key elements of PAS91, a construction industry specification, and is recognised across all industries. This gives our existing and potential customers the utmost confidence in working with us.”

Ritec is already accredited or certified with many industry standard schemes, and SafePQQ is another demonstration of Ritec’s commitment to continuous improvement.
