Rotterdam Central Train Station recently approached EcoShield Surface Protection, seeking a solution to the staining and surface degradation suffered by stainless steel on electrical enclosures, first aid poles and other surfaces. This included weathering, staining from airborne contamination and vandalism.

EcoShield is a partner of Ritec Services in Holland. They specialise in the renovation and protection of glass and metals on building façades, commercial glazing and railway stations. The work was carried out in-situ in collaboration between the two companies with stunning results.

Ritec Services protects 20,000m2 of glass with ClearShield® on the latest NCL Cruise Ship

Ritec Services just completed the protection of 20,000m2 of glass on all windows of the brand new Norwegian Joy cruise ship for Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany prior to its maiden voyage.

The team was contracted by NCL to complete a unique service that helps keeping glass on cruise ships looking like new, whilst reducing water and crew time requirements for its cleaning and maximising passenger satisfaction.

Highly trained and experienced applicators were brought in during the final phase of construction. They carried out a specialist deep clean to remove all glue, paint, silicone sealants and mineral salts deposits, regaining the ‘as-new’ appearance, sparkle and transparency of the glass.

The glass was then protected to ensure it remains that way for as long as possible. At sea, and especially during the inauguration voyage, crew members can spend less time cleaning glass, using less water doing so. Passengers can take in the amazing views.

ClearShield® protected glass no longer requires harsh and polluting chemicals for its maintenance. Ritec Services offer full training and a very effective after-care programme.
