For almost 15 years, the 26-storey Windowist Tower in Istanbul, Turkey, had been left unoccupied. In that time frame, its glass and aluminium façade became heavily contaminated. This contamination was virtually impossible to remove with conventional washing, leaving the building looking dirty with little light entering it.
Under the supervision of Kozmos Cam, Ritec’s Marketing Partner in Turkey, a specialist on-site team of applicators restored all of the building’s glass and aluminium panels back to new in 2010. After that, 2,850m² (30,700 ft²) of glass was treated with ClearShield® ‘non-stick’, easy-clean protection.
The results were, in the own words of the Tower owner’s Research and Development Manager, “honestly breathtaking”. Not only the ‘as-new’ look of the façade was fully restored, but the ClearShield® protection ensures the glass stays that way in the future with reduced maintenance requirements and costs.
