Clearshield rsidentiial results

Glass is a sensitive material that reacts with its environment. Dirt can quickly build up on your windows. Over time, unprotected glass suffers permanent bonding of these residues causing staining and physical damage. Often washing does not mean cleaning. This is why windows, over time, may look dull, and it becomes very difficult, if not impossible to bring back the shine, no matter how hard you try. Our fully trained glazers can help give you back a clear view of the world!


Our glazers can apply a product called ‘ClearShield Ritec’, which chemically bonds with the surface of your existing glass to form an easy clean, non stick surface. 

First your glass needs to be stripped of all the old pollution and dirt that has built up microscopically which causes your glass to look dull. This can be done by our experienced glazing team in-situ. They clean the glass with renovator which removes this build up from the microscopic pores in glass, then the glass is conditioned and ClearShield is applied.  

Once the process is complete, your glass is then left smooth, the microscopic pores are sealed so tClearshieldhere will be no repeat build up of dirt and pollution. Your windows will have an easy clean surface that will cut down the need to clean by half!    

It also comes with a 10 year guarantee on vertical glazing for total peace of mind.  ClearShield chemically bonds with the glass, becoming part of it, not just a coating!

It can be applied to windows, shower screens, balustrade, glass tiles, splashbacks, mirrors and conservatory roofs. It even brings back to life tired powder coated aluminium frames.

  2. Durable – resists attack by Moisture, Alkalinity and Dirt (‘MAD’), the main enemies of glass, maintaining the original visibility, clarity and cleanability;
  3. Strong performance – resistant to all types of dirt, organic (e.g. motor vehicle exhaust or traffic film, bird droppings, tree sap) and inorganic (e.g. hard water deposits, building run-off, metal oxides) – suitable for all types of glass, exterior and interior;
  4. Energy-saving and “green” - reduces energy requirements for routine glass washing by 50% on average – for lower emissions and carbon footprints as well as savings in time, effort and money;
  5. Light-enhancing – maintains original light transmission and day-lighting – for improved productivity and well-being of building occupants; 
  6. Anti-microbial – resistant to adhesion and growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi – for applications where hygiene is paramount;
