Architecture and Buildings

For architects, building contractors, building owners and facilities managers, ClearShield Eco-Glass™ gives the following benefits:
 

  • Reduces construction and maintenance costs and delays
  • Keeps glass looking like new and pristine appearance of façade
  • Increases satisfaction of tenants and occupiers

During Construction
Building contractors face the problem of concrete splatter, cement dust and slurry and other types of alkaline construction materials damaging and corroding the surface of glass on building sites.

ClearShield Eco-Glass™ helps to reduce:

  • remedial work and costly replacement for glass surface damage
  • costs from unsatisfactory final builder’s clean or call-backs
  • delayed certification on glazing handover

After Construction
Inevitably, unprotected glass becomes contaminated over time, ruining a building’s appearance. Typical contaminants include concrete and silicone run-off, traffic fumes, tree sap and bird lime. 

The result is costly and difficult cleaning. With ClearShield Eco-Glass™ however, this means:

  • less use of access equipment to maintain the glass
  • increased effectiveness and reduced frequency of window washing
  • glass stays cleaner for longer

ClearShield® Protection
The benefits of ClearShield Eco-Glass™ go far beyond its easy-to-clean properties. It protects the glass surface from damage caused by corrosion, weathering and chemical contamination.

For glass already contaminated during or after construction, Ritec’s specialist onsite team can renovate contaminated glass to its original ‘as-new’ appearance and then provide effective protection from future contamination.
