GLASS  TYPES

Museum Glass® is the best glazing option for all framed works of art.  Museum Glass is the highest quality anti-reflective picture framing glass available in the industry and produces an ultra protective, nearly invisible finish.  It protects against 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays and has the highest light transmission along with the lowest reflection rating of any other glass product. 

AR Reflection Free needed mostly for deeply framed artwork, such as multiple-mat and shadowbox presentations.


Conservation Reflection Control® with 99% UV Protection is chemically finished on one side, scattering light as it strikes the glass.  This matte-like finish enhances the beauty of the artwork by protecting the piece from unwanted glare or distortion.  Additionally, the UV protection helps protect fading, discoloration and embrittlement caused by harmful light rays.

Reflection Control® is used because glass can act like a mirror, causing glare and distracting viewers from the works of art on display.  Reflection Control glass is chemically finished to scatter light as it strikes the glass.  This subtle, matte-like treatment protects artwork from unwanted glare or distortion. 


Conservation Clear® framing glass with 99% UV protection helps protect art from fading by blocking harmful indoor and outdoor light rays, preserving art for years longer than regular glass.  It produces an ultra protective lite of glass that enhances true colors and protects art from fading.  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.  

Premium Clear® Artwork deserves the highest quality regular glass available and you can find it with Premium Clear framing glass.  This quality durable glass showcases your artwork.
