Our standard glass. We use premium glass, and our glass blocks up to 45% of UV light. This glass is not conservation grade, however this type of glass is a common and economic choice for regular framing.
Non-glare glass has a special layer added to it that is slightly textured. The light is diffused in this layer instead of reflected, avoiding glare. Non-Glare glass has many applications. It is the perfect solution for a framed piece placed across from a television, or in a space with plenty of light. It can also be used to “warm” up the colors in your art.
Conservation UV glass is a must when it comes to preserving your framed art over the years. Over time exposure to indoor and outdoor UV light can contribute to the fading and deterioration of artwork. UV Silica based coating is baked into the glass and prevents 99% of UV rays from ever reaching your art. This coating will not delaminate over time. This is our recommended glass type for valuable artwork as it will protect it for a lifetime.
Our Conservation Non-Glare Glass offers the best of both worlds. This glass still reflects up to 99% of UV light which makes it a perfect choice for any conservation framing. While still minimizing glare, this glass will allow over 97% light transmission which will help maintain color, brightness and contrast levels in your artwork.
Ultra View Glass virtually eliminates reflections. This glass will filter up to 70 % of UV rays, and provides crystal clear color transmission. Ultraview glass has an enhangnced surface for better duralbility and easy cleaning. Ths is great in a shadow box, as it looks like you can reach in and pick up the piece that has been framed.
