A Breakthrough in Glass Protection - Cutting edge technology for glass protection.
Clear Shield is a permanent, invisible coating that prevents the adhesion and buildup of contaminants onto the glass surface. It also provides oil and water repellent properties. Working similarly to non-stick cookware, Clear Shied treated glass becomes easier to clean without the need for harsh chemicals. You’ll only need to use water and a mild detergent or a damp microfiber cloth. No more scaling or scrubbing!
Investing in glass protection also helps prevent the build-up of mould and harmful bacteria, promoting a more hygienic, germ free environment.
Benefits of Glass Protection:
- Makes glass easy to clean - Just a wipe over with a damp cloth
- Stays cleaner longer - Long lasting repellent coating
- Protects your investment - Maintains that ‘as New’ appearance
- Creates a more hygienic shower - Prevents mould and bacteria growth
- Environmentally Friendly - No harsh toxic cleaning products needed
- Highly durable - Prevents soap scum, dirt and limescale build up
How it works
Glass is not as smooth as it seems
The seemingly smooth surface of glass contains microscopic ridges and valleys that create a favourable environment for the buildup of contaminants like soap scum, hard water deposits and grime. In time, the glass surface will visibly dull and become difficult to clean. This will result in high maintenance and premature replacement costs due to deterioration.
The Glass Protection Advantage
Glass Protection gives a permanent coating that will prevent the adhesion and buildup of contaminants onto the glass surface. It also provides water and oil repellent properties.
Working similar to non-stick cookware your glass becomes easier to clean without the need for harsh chemicals.
Glass Protection has been designed to protect any silica based surface such as shower screens and glass pool fences which reduces the time and effort required to maintain these surfaces by up to 90%.
Most people find shower doors in their home are the biggest problem to keep looking clean. The build up of soaps, chemicals and water residue often leaves them with a cloudy appearance. Our Glass Protection can restore the original clarity on your shower doors, giving them the appearance of looking brand new. What’s more it keeps them looking that way.
Glass Pool Fences
Protect your glass pool fence from a build up of grime, salt spray & residue. Even after ordinary cleaning most glass retains a level of residue. Your glass protection acts by repelling substances that can adhere to the glass over time. You not only have to clean your windows them less often, surface grimes just comes away, leaving your pool fence looking ‘brand new’.
Cleaning Your Shower
The warmer the water, the greater the surface tension and spotting, therefore shower doors require a little more maintenance than other applications like windows or glass balustrades.
We recommend two methods that will keep your glass looking like new.
1. After taking a shower, dry the glass using either a plastic (not rubber) blade or a dry cloth. This will help to keep your shower looking pristine and will mean you do not have to clean the glass so often.
2. Don’t dry the shower glass after each use but clean it more often. However, by not drying the glass each time spotting may occur. The protective coating makes spots easy to remove but cleaning may be required each week, depending on water quality.
It’s so easy! If any marks are hard to remove just repeat the process.
To clean the outside of the shower use any normal glass cleaner.
(Please note that failure to maintain your glass will result in the Glass Protection becoming less effective.)
