Ritec Retrospective: Balthazar Restaurant, UK

Leading Cambridge-based glass and mirror manufacturer, Go-Glass, chose Ritec’s ClearShield® to protect and maintain its decorative glass commission for the London edition of the Balthazar Restaurant. This second Balthazar restaurant was launched to great critical acclaim in London’s Covent Garden and again features stunning glass ‘Art Deco’ style interiors which are synonymous with the brand.

Having used Ritec’s ‘non-stick’ glass surface treatment for many years, Go-Glass applied the ClearShield® easy-clean treatment on to the special acoustic laminated glass, in which they had etched a sandblasted border design, in their own factory in 2013.

Ordinary glass treated with the Ritec ClearShield® protection is upgraded to ClearShield Eco-Glass®, resulting in a higher quality of glass with excellent clarity. The restaurant’s glass will also hold a pristine appearance for longer and will always be easier to clean, providing low maintenance cost savings for the restaurant. In addition, ClearShield Eco-Glass® is more hygienic thanks to its resistance to bacterial adhesion. Meeting direct food contact test requirements of the EU and the USA Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the hygiene properties of ClearShield® significantly reduce the accumulation of bacteria and is therefore ideal for commercial and private kitchens.

Tracy Saunders, Director of Go-Glass, said: “We have been using ClearShield on our sandblasted glass for more than 12 years and have always been delighted with the results. In an environment such as this busy restaurant we needed to be confident that the product we supplied would be hard wearing and retain its pristine appearance. Go-Glass actively endorses the use of ClearShield on glass showers, splashbacks and all sandblasted glass the company supplies.”
