ClearShield® Saves the Day for Giza Homeowners!

The ClearShield Eco-System® saves the day once again! This time amazed homeowners in Giza, Egypt realised just how the System transformed dirty, lifeless glass to ‘non-stick’, easy clean ClearShield Eco-Glass®.

During the house’s construction process, the windows and balustrade glass attracted all kinds of contamination including cement staining, dust and limescale. These contaminants were all impossible to remove using standard cleaning products and in some cases, harsh and abrasive cleaning can make things worse. Glass replacement was an option but costly both in terms of time and money.

The homeowner came across Five Stars, Ritec International’s Marketing Partner in Egypt. They are fully trained to renovate, protect and maintain glass with the ClearShield Eco-System®. Five Stars got to work and in no time, removed the heavy contamination from the glass, ensuring it was chemically clean. They then applied ClearShield®, an award-winning durable protective treatment that makes glass ‘non-stick’ and easy clean. Once the glass is protected, it becomes ClearShield Eco-Glass® that is easier to clean and keep clean, reduces frequency of cleaning and looks like new for longer.

Five Stars treated 216m² of glass in total. Now the homeowners not only enjoy nice views of their garden and swimming pool, they are also safe in the knowledge that the glass will continue to look sparkling with little effort.

Ali Saafan, Managing Director’s Assistant at Five Stars, was full of praises. He said: “We are very glad and satisfied by the ClearShield Eco-System as it renovated the glass from ‘zero to hero’… this resulted in very happy homeowners!”

ClearShield® Solves Tour Company’s Coach Conundrum!

‘Non-stick’, easy-clean Ritec ClearShield Eco-Glass® technology is proven to delight drivers and passengers when it comes to automotive glass!

Take this prime example of Leisure Time Travel, a family-owned and operated New Zealand travel company. For over 30 years, they have provided inspirational travel experiences including coach tours, weekend breaks, road trips and small group tours.

Les Mehrtens is the company’s founder and director, and is a coach driver himself. He was looking for a glass surface treatment for his coaches that optimised visibility (which in turn helps safety and driver comfort) as well as enhancing the viewing pleasure of tourists.

Les tried a well-known glass surface treatment supplier but was left disappointed. He then came across Ritec ClearShield® and was thrilled to find a solution that not only worked, but, in his own words, exceeded his expectations. “Storms during the summer months would make driving treacherous both for me and my South Island drivers were it not for ClearShield treatment”, said Les. “Windscreen visibility – even without using wipers – and driving long days in terrible weather was made so much easier because of ClearShield. Tourists also commented that the windows were the clearest they had ever toured on!”

ClearShield® is an award-winning durable glass surface treatment manufactured in the UK by Ritec International. They developed the ClearShield Eco-System® for the renovation, ‘non-stick’ protection and maintenance of glass, upgrading ordinary glass to higher performing easy-clean ClearShield Eco-Glass® that resists moisture, alkalinity and dirt. Its versatility means any glass can be upgraded – architectural, residential, decorative, marine, offshore, solar and as emphasised here, automotive.

The ClearShield® application was carried out by Peter and Heather Wavish of Specialist Glass Cleaning and Protection (SGC). Over the years they have treated glass in hundreds of buses and coaches ensuring everyone benefits, from the driver’s safety and comfort to the pleasure of passengers.
