Ritec recently treated glass on-site in a private residence in Hadlow, Kent with the ClearShield Eco-System®.
The ClearShield Eco-System® was developed to renovate, protect and maintain glass. Ordinary glass protected with this System becomes ‘non-stick’, easy-clean ClearShield Eco-Glass® that resists staining, discolouration and moisture. Not only is the glass noticeably easier to maintain with less time, effort and frequency required, ClearShield Eco-Glass® also looks pristine for longer.
In the case of this private home, over 20m² of picture windows and roof glazing were renovated and then protected with Ritec’s award-winning ClearShield® glass surface treatment. With the treatment complete, the glass is now sparkling new, and a simple after-care programme maintains this.
The ClearShield Eco-System® can be used to protect all kinds of glass in and around the home, not just windows and glass roofs. Shower enclosures, decorative/sandblasted glass, mirrors, glass furniture, even solar panels can all benefit from ClearShield® protection.
So if you have any glass that need renovating and protecting, contact us and ask for ‘non-stick’ easy-clean ClearShield® treatment!
This 5-star hotel and spa is located in Wilderness, a town in South Africa’s Western Cape Province, on a coastal stretch known as the Garden Route.
ClearShield SA (PTY) Ltd, Ritec’s official Marketing Partner for South Africa, carried out the on-site work to this highly-rated venue in 2009. They applied the ClearShield System® to renovate and protect internal and external glass surfaces including the roof area, balustrades, decorative glass and all shower doors, both clear and sandblasted. A total of 1,500m2 (16,145 ft2) of glass was treated.
The hotel’s General Manager was very happy with the results: “This ClearShield treatment has worked well to keep the glass looking as clean as possible in between the cleaning cycles. The coastal weather can be severe, and yet after good rain, our glass looks fantastic, enabling us to focus our resources and time on managing other priorities. The Views Boutique Hotel & Spa would like to highly recommend ClearShield.”

The major obstacle to a solar panel’s performance, however, is dirt (‘soiling’) or anything else that lands on the glass surface. This is where the proven Ritec ClearShield Eco-System®, developed to renovate, protect and maintain glass, comes in.
Transparencia en Servicios are experienced applicators of the Ritec ClearShield Eco-System®. Any glass surface treated with this System becomes ClearShield Eco-Glass® which resists dirt and other forms of staining and is easier to clean and keep clean. Their on-site applicators firstly renovated the existing dirty glass solar panel surfaces, totalling around 100m2 (1,080ft2), bringing them all back to new. With the glass now chemically clean, Ritec ClearShield® was applied to the surface, effectively sealing it and protecting it from dirt as well as moisture. Any contaminants on ClearShield Eco-Glass® are significantly easier to remove compared to ordinary glass.
The application of Ritec ClearShield® means a low-maintenance, ‘non-stick’ glass surface which will optimise the amount of solar transmission and maximise electrical generation. This also reduces payback time, another benefit.
