With over 35 years of experience, Ritec’s ClearShield is a tried and tested system for protecting new and existing marine glass, from cruise ships to ferries and super yachts. It provides ship owners with a complete solution in terms of reduced maintenance, improved safety and passenger comfort.

ClearShield Power Saving Glass courtesy of Ritec’s unique ClearShield glass surface protection system. For owners of cruise ships, this glass reduces by 50% on average:

Special ClearShield protected glass will then:

  • reduce water usage for glass cleaning on the ship
  • reduce crew time and cleaning products spent on cleaning glass
  • maintain the glass sparkling and clear
  • increase customer satisfaction, green and quality image
  • increase safety through higher visibility in the bridge house
  • resist pressure washing

Ritec Services offers you a complete service that includes:

  • removal of stains from the sea salts when the ship is in service
  • removal of paints, glue residue left by the protective film and silicone deposits made during the construction phase
  • application of a durable protection to the glass surface to make it ‘non-stick’, stain resistant
  • final cleaning of the glass before maiden voyage
  • training of the crew for recommended maintenance of the protected glass

It also means that glass corrosion from harsh sea salts and fume exhausts as well as general dirt and staining are all easier to remove thanks to the ‘non-stick’ surface. This results in improved visibility, pristine-looking glass and fewer passenger complaints.
