Garland Canada Launches Defense Force™ Product Line Amid Global Health Crisis

Garland Canada launches new product line designed to protect the exterior health of commercial facilities. Its Defense Force product line includes a safe and effective antimicrobial disinfectant that has demonstrated effectiveness against viruses similar to the coronavirus/COVID-19.

TORONTO, Ontario – As much of the country begins to ease restrictions and businesses start to reopen, Garland Canada Inc. is ready with its innovative Defense Force line of high-performance products designed to either clean, disinfect and/or protect commercial facilities. Garland Canada, a distributor 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 Health Canada-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.

“We recognize that our customers’ top priority right now is protecting the health and safety of their employees, customers and communities,” said Charbel Boulos, president of Garland Canada. “Our Defense Force line of products was developed with the goal of protecting the health of commercial facilities and ultimately protecting 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.
