Over time, the lenses on emergency vehicle lighting become cloudy, compromising their visibility to oncoming traffic and delaying the detection time of Opticom emitters. This happens when the external UV coating on the lens degrades due to the elements, chemicals used in washing the vehicles, exhaust fumes and road wear. As a result, 80% of its light output is lost. In many cases, the only solution for fire departments and EMS agencies has been the costly replacement of the plastic lenses. First responders now have another alternative thanks to Bill Norville, the creator of LenzSaver, a polish system that makes it possible to restore lenses instead of replacing them.
Bill Norville began his career twenty-five years ago in the aerospace industry, developing a system for repairing and removing scratches in polycarbonate windows in jet aircraft without removing the windows. Norville established three patents for this process, which the military and aircraft industry still use today. Recognizing that the automotive industry needed a similar solution for repairing headlights, Norville went to work inventing a product to fill this need, and over the past five years has developed the patented LenzSaver Headlight Restoration Process.
This procedure removes the old UV coating from the headlights, polishes the lens so that it is clean, and anneals a new UV coating to the light. The kit contains the polish, UV Protectant, polishing pads, coating removal disc, and applicators that are necessary to do the restoration a process which can be completed with a cordless drill.
After achieving success in the automotive industry, Bill Norville and LenzSaver became involved in helping the first responder community in 2007, after the October fire storms destroyed several communities in San Diego, California, where the LenzSaver home office is located. Several of San Diego Fire-Rescue's fire trucks had sustained damage while battling the fires. Among other things, the emergency lighting on the units were scarred by falling burning embers. One of Norville's best friends owned a home in one of the areas affected by the wildfires, and San Diego Fire-Rescue had saved it from the devastating flames. Norville learned of the problem with their light bars, and wanted to thank the fire department by repairing the lenses on ten of their most damaged rigs free of charge.
Much to the surprise and delight of the department, LenzSaver was able to remove all of the pock marks inflicted by the fires, saving them from spending thousands of dollars to replace the emergency lighting. Pleased with the results, the city commissioned Norville to use his kits to restore the lighting on all of their units. Since then, Norville has sold his kits to several fire departments and EMS agencies that have had great success in restoring the lights on their fire trucks and ambulances.
Norville says that one LenzSaver kit can repair all of the emergency lighting on one standard-sized fire truck or ambulance within two hours. LenzSaver guarantees its product for one year, but claims that it can last for three to five years. Retailing for $59.95, this do-it-yourself-kit is one third the cost of replacing the lenses. For Duane Ingerson, the Fleet Manager of San Diego Medical Services Enterprise, who has a fleet of 118 vehicles, this adds up to a significant savings.
Besides saving departments money, there are other benefits to using LenzSaver. Agencies that own older apparatus with light bars that are no longer manufactured now have a way to repair their lenses. Also, this product is environmentally friendly, as it is made with natural chemicals that are non-toxic. It also eliminates the need to throw away the plastic lenses, helping the environment by keeping them out of landfills.
LenzSaver can be purchased through a secure online ordering system on their website, or by calling their home office at (619) 297-3678.
