Food & Hygiene Applications
The ClearShield Eco-System® is so versatile it can be used to protect glass and ceramic surfaces to make them easy-clean and stain-resistant...
where good hygiene is paramount, such as:-
- medical facilities, e.g. hospitals and surgeries
with direct or indirect food contact, such as:-
- food counters and food preparation / processing areas
- cooker hood glass
- kitchen splashbacks
sneeze screens / guards
glass oven doors and hobs
ClearShield Eco-Glass® provides effective protection against staining and discolouration and adhesion and growth of micro-organisms, such as bacteria and fungi on surfaces in food processing plants, restaurants and hospitals. ClearShield® meets European Union (EU) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for direct contact with all types of food, as confirmed by an independent laboratory accredited by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS).
Hygiene Glass Case Studies
Go Glass, an independent glass design company in Cambridge designed, produced and installed protective glass screens for King’s College, a constituent college of the University of Cambridge.
Go Glass were commissioned to design bespoke glass protection screens for this historic college, founded in 1441 by King Henry VI. Drawing on the experience of their Design Director and his team, and utilising specialist glass processes including UV bonding, Go Glass proudly supplied and installed these glass screens to the Porters’ Lodge. The screens incorporated the King’s College logo, etched onto Go Glass’s toughened ‘hygiene glass’.
Go Glass’s hygiene glass is powered by award-winning, ‘non-stick’ easy-clean Ritec ClearShield® glass surface treatment. Not only is treated glass easier to maintain and looks pristine for longer, it has been independently tested to resist the adhesion and growth of bacteria. Porters’ Lodge staff and visitors are now adequately protected from each other, and any germs on the screens will not adhere to the surface, so are easily removed during cleaning. These measures help to promote a more hygienic environment.
