Garland Launches Defense Force™ Product Line Amid Global Health Crisis
Cleveland, OH - 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 the coronavirus/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.
“Although D7 differs
from our traditional roofing and waterproofing products, we recognize the importance of protecting what matters most – our employees, customers and communities,” said Brett Wygal, Garland’s operations manager. “The overall
goal of our Defense Force line is to improve the health of commercial facilities and ultimately protect the health of those inside. We know the best way to do that is by starting with the exterior of the facility.”
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
