Daedalian Glass Studios are long-time applicators of Ritec ClearShield® ‘non-stick’, easy-clean glass surface treatment. They were commissioned to supply a focal kitchen splashback for an indoor-outdoor cooking area in sandblasted glass for a private residence in Cheshire.
Featuring the iconic Rock of Cashel and Galty mountain range of County Tipperary, Ireland, the final stunning design began as a hand sketched artistic landscape drawn by Daedalian Glass Studios Founder Davia Walmsley.
Davia collaborated with the client, making alterations to suit showing forced perspective of the two landmarks before creating a full-size drawing of the panel. Upon final client sign-off, the panel measured 3750mm width x 960mm height and was manufactured in 10mm low iron toughened glass, where their studio team sandblasted to multiple depths on both sides of the glass to achieve an interesting three-dimensional effect. To complete the panel, Ritec Clearshield® was used to protect the sandblasted design.
With over 40 years of track records, ClearShield® is a proven and award-winning glass surface treatment suitable for all kinds of glass in all kinds of environments. Used to upgrade ordinary glass surfaces to ClearShield Eco-Glass®, its ‘non-stick’ properties make the surface stain-resistant and easy to clean and keep clean.
For sandblasted glass, ClearShield® is of particular benefit. It resists fingermarks, grease and other forms of staining to uphold the intended beauty of this type of glass.
Furthermore, ClearShield® is independently proven to resist the adhesion of bacteria, promoting a much more hygienic environment.
