Beachside Balustrade Glass Bettered with ClearShield Eco-System®!

‘Non-stick’ easy-clean ClearShield® protection is perfect for balustrade glass – even in aggressive coastal environments – as this project in Papamoa, New Zealand demonstrates.

Papamoa, also known as Papamoa Beach, is a suburb of Tauranga, located about 7 miles from the city centre. This beautiful location is popular for fishing, surfing, and as a holiday retreat.

The new owners of a house right on the beach, however, felt they were not getting the full advantage from their investment: the balustrade glass had become badly stained due to long-term exposure from the salt and sand from the beach right on their doorstep.  They wanted the glass restored back to how it was plus having some way of making it easier to clean in the future; replacing the glass was very costly and not an option.

This is where the ClearShield Eco-System® from Ritec International comes in. This award-winning System renovates, protects and maintains glass and can be applied on-site as was the case here. Ordinary, unprotected glass upgraded with this System becomes ClearShield Eco-Glass® with numerous benefits: it resists staining and discolouration, makes glass easier to clean and keep clean, typically halves the frequency of cleaning and maintains a pristine look for longer.

Peter and Heather Wavish of Specialist Glass Cleaning and Protection (SGC) have many years of experience applying the ClearShield Eco-System®. They were contacted to use the System to renovate the balustrade glass to an ‘as-new’ appearance before applying ClearShield®, a unique surface treatment that once cured, gives proven and durable protection from moisture, alkalinity and dirt – perfect for glass exposed to the elements.

The owners were very impressed by SGC and the ClearShield Eco-System® as it solved their problems. So much so that they have specified the System for other windows to be renovated and protected with ClearShield®.

So if you have balustrade glass looking old before its time (or any other glass for that matter), find out more about the Ritec ClearShield Eco-System® by visiting
