ClearShield® Protection is Tremendous for Trackside Glass!

May 15, 2024 Latest Updates0

Ritec International’s Marketing Partner in Norway, Stein Solli OverflateXperten (SSOX), recently completed a project upgrading railway glass with the ClearShield Eco-System® for ‘non-stick’, easy-clean glass.

ClearShield® Protection is Tremendous for Trackside Glass!
The newly-built glass fence, composed of 129 individual panels approximately 1.15m x 2.35m, runs about 150m alongside the railway track between Bergen Central Station and the Ulriken tunnel. Originally the railway infrastructure management company specified ‘self-cleaning’ glass for the side facing the railway track. However, the glass manufacturer did not believe this was suitable for this type of application so ClearShield® ‘non-stick’, easy-clean glass protection was given the green light instead.

ClearShield® Protection is Tremendous for Trackside Glass!
With decades of glass renovation, protection and maintenance, SSOX carried out the application of the ClearShield Eco-System® in-house prior to installation (although glass can be treated on-site if required). Glass protected with this award-winning System is upgraded to higher-performance ClearShield Eco-Glass®. This special type of glass resists both organic and inorganic contamination, whereas ‘self-cleaning’ glass is not able to break down inorganic contamination such as brake dust from trains and pollution. Additionally, unlike ‘self-cleaning’ glass, ClearShield Eco-Glass® is not reliant on sunlight or rainwater to perform; its surface is always easier to maintain and reduces the frequency of cleaning, saving time and money. ClearShield Eco-Glass® also looks cleaner for longer as there is less build-up of dirt. It is already in use for railway applications in the UK, Netherlands and Japan.
