Anti-Graffiti Protection

Problem

A large fleet of brand new 350 ADL city buses were delivered to New Zealand to be introduced public transport network. As bus window vandalism and especially etching is commonplace, it was important to protect the windows before introduced into traffic.

Solution

GlassProtech ended up providing a cost-effective solution to reduce the replacement cost of the windows by applying their protective high specification anti-graffiti window film to all interior windows on buses.

Result

The interior windows on all 350 ADL city buses were successfully protected by the GlassProtech team, before being introduced to the public transport network. This provided a cost-effective solution for ongoing maintenance, as the replacement of anti-graffiti film is considerably lower than that of windows.

Description

GlassProtech was approached to provide anti-graffiti protection on the windows of a large fleet of brand new 350 ADL city buses, which were being delivered and introduced to the New Zealand public transport network. As bus window etching is commonplace, it was very important to ensure that all windows were protected, before introduced to the public transport network.

We specified a highly toughened GlassProtech anti-graffiti film, specifically designed to protect glass from scratch vandalism and etching. This film was applied on all vulnerable interior windows. When the glass would be scratched or damaged, the film could simply be pulled off and replaced giving the windows a brand new appearance.

Our recommendation is to protect glass windows on public transport from new build, as this decreases the overall maintenance and replacement costs over the vehicles lifecycle.
