Over the past 12 months, Ritec International’s Marketing Partner in Norway, OverflateXperten, have been busy applying the ClearShield Eco-System® in the municipality of Lillestrøm, 20km (12.5 miles) northeast of the capital Oslo.
Bergen-based OverflateXperten have many years of experience applying the ClearShield Eco-System® for the renovation, protection and maintenance of glass. ClearShield®, the durable protective element of the System, upgrades glass to ‘non-stick’, easy-clean ClearShield Eco-Glass®. Its low-maintenance surface resists staining and discolouration and keeps glass looking like new for longer.
A new-build apartment block was the first in a string of buildings in central Lillestrøm that have had the external glass upgraded to ClearShield Eco-Glass®. Around 850m² of glass was treated on-site to begin with last year, and more recently a further 1,825m² was treated.
The developers have clearly fallen in love with the benefits of ClearShield® as now they are considering treatment to the internal face of the ground floor windows. The high-end apartment complex contains a spa, restaurant, boutique and a hotel room on each floor, and ClearShield® will significantly help maintain the pristine appearance.
Adjacent to the apartment block, there is much redevelopment work going on; specifically, a complex consisting of six older buildings were demolished and recently rebuilt. OverflateXperten treated glass on the ground floor of this new complex totalling 200m², with more areas to come.
Furthermore, there are plans for several more buildings in the area to have ClearShield® treatment in the near future. It looks like Lillestrøm will be OverflateXperten’s new home for quite a while!
