Regular Glass – Considered sufficient to protect the artwork that is not hanging in direct sunlight or under fluorescent lights for a prolonged time, protecting artwork from up to 45% of harmful UV light rays.
UV-Protective Glass – An archival-quality glazing protecting artwork from up to 99% of UV light rays reducing fading and preserving artwork for years longer than regular glass. Over time, indoor and outdoor ultraviolet rays take a toll on artwork and cause fading. Paper can become faded, discolored, and brittle, causing irreversible damage that ruins the artwork.
Non-Glare Glass – Glass is etched to reduce the glare of light that may obstruct the view of the artwork, protecting artwork from up to 45% of harmful UV light rays. Non-glare glass is a little cloudy and may not be the best choice for all artwork.
UV-Non-Glare Glass – A matte-like finish that scatters light to minimize unwanted glare. Additionally, 99% UV protection helps protect artwork against fading, discoloration and embrittlement caused by harmful UV light rays.
AR – Reflection-Free Glass – Ideal for reflection-free viewing. Additionally, 78% UV protection helps protect artwork against fading, discoloration and embrittlement caused by harmful UV light rays.
Museum – Glass – For virtually invisible glazing that will enhance colors, brightness and contrast levels of all types of artwork, even posters. Along with the lowest reflection rating of any other glass product, it blocks 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays to protect artwork from fading and has the highest light transmission.
Acrylic (Plexiglas) – Ideal for oversized framing applications and static sensitive pieces. When light weight, shatter resistant glazing is essential for protection.
