As much of the country begins to ease restrictions and businesses start to reopen, The Garland® Company, Inc., is ready with its innovative Defense Force™ line of high-performance products designed to either clean, disinfect, and/or protect commercial facilities. Garland, a manufacturer of high-performance roofing and waterproofing systems, looked beyond its traditional offerings amid the global health crisis to provide customers with new and more powerful ways to protect their facilities.
The flagship Defense Force product is D7™, a safe and effective EPA-registered antimicrobial disinfectant that kills bacteria, fungi, germs, and viruses in minutes and has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to COVID-19. It can be applied to hard, non-porous interior and exterior surfaces, providing the assurance of clean and safe facilities. D7 is easily mixed and applied with standard sprayers. There is no specialized training required for the application of D7, so disinfection can take place almost immediately. The overall goal of Garland’s Defense Force line is to improve the health of commercial facilities and ultimately protect the health of those inside.
The Defense Force product line also includes Clear-Shield™, a patented, clear acrylic water-based solution designed to protect a roof’s existing surface. The nontoxic solution includes antimicrobial products that, in turn, protect the coating itself. Clear-Shield can be sprayed or roller applied to gravel and mineral-surfaced modified bitumen and single-ply roofs. Clean-Shield™ rounds out the line and is a biodegradable, nontoxic cleaning solution formulated to safely and effectively clean, brighten, and restore a variety of masonry substrates. Clean-Shield penetrates the surface and chemically reacts to remove contaminants and deposits like hard water stains, efflorescence, dirt, algae, mold, mildew, rust, and other hard to remove contaminants.
