The existing 9/11 Memorial at the United Nations in Manhattan had been damaged by groundskeepers and had to be removed and replaced. The damage to existing stonework and glass was significant, resulting in the decision to re-construct this important monument. David Shuldiner Archtectural Glass was asked to supply the new memorial.
CHB was selected to consult and recommend appropriate filming and treatments that would protect the glass from staining and build-up of calcium, minerals, and dirt. This film also had to guard against the effects of weather.
CHB worked closely with David Shuldiner Architectural Glass and recommended and installed Diamond Seal, a multi–application polymer process that seals the glass pores and inhibits any stain buildup. This process is easily cleaned and will assure that this memorial retains its quality appearance despite being exposed to the elements and on-site workers.
CHB’s partnership, preserving valued private and public spaces against damaging graffiti vandalism.
CHB Industries has provided a wide range of solutions for municipalities seeking to save money while improving the ambiance of such public properties as the Chicago Transit Authority stations and Guaranteed Rate Field, the home of the Chicago White Sox.
These properties and others are exposed to the elements and daily use of citizens who walk through corridors and walkways and inadvertently scratch window surfaces. Unfortunately, these panes are also damaged by vandals who purposely deface windows by scratching surfaces and marking them up with unsightly graffiti.
By installing anti-graffiti film on new panels of glass, CHB has provided a solution that reflects a clean, unmarred appearance to glass. Cost savings are realized when the film is scratched or marred since the film can be removed and then replaced. It is a cost-effective solution that eliminates the need to replace the glass.
Times Square Alliance Turns to CHB
High pedestrian traffic at the crossroads of the world inevitably results in wear and tear. This was the observation of the Times Square Alliance, a non-profit with the goal of “improving and promoting Times Square as an icon of entertainment, culture and urban life, for over a century.” With thousands of theatre-goers lining up daily at the TKTS facility on Times Square, it wasn’t unexpected that this glass hub in the middle of Times Square might be marred by scratches and damage due to the elements.
The Times Square Alliance turned to CHB Industries seeking affordable solutions to protect the famous TKTS booth and iconic red bleachers over Broadway from wear-and-tear. The goal was to ensure that TKTS remains burnished and a welcoming experience for all who visit this great city.
With experience, protecting New York City’s retail windows and building glass from vandalism, CHB recommended its patented clear “anti-graffiti” film. If damaged, the film can be removed and replaced, simply, avoiding costly and time consuming glass replacement. Additionally, CHB has installed the well-known TKTS logo and graphics. The strategy also provides buyers with unobstructed views of Times Square and allows natural light to filter into the facility, providing a pleasant experience for visitors.
