Some of the specialist glass/glazing types that we use are:-
Waterwhite Glass – the ideal alternative to ordinary float glass, a completely colourless clear float glass, offering outstanding colour reproduction.
Anti-reflective / AR Glass – Conventional picture framing glass typically reflects 8% of incoming light, distracting the viewer with mirror-like reflections. With AR, light reflection is as low as 0.5% thus offering 16 times less reflection and eliminating any mirror-like effects. AR provides 99% light transmission, making it practically invisible so all the viewer sees is pure art.
UV Glass – Over time, the ultraviolet rays in everyday light take a toll on artwork. Paper can become faded, discoloured, and brittle, causing irreversible damage that ruins the artwork. UV glazing acts as a sunscreen for artwork, blocking 98% of harmful light rays and helps protect framed pieces, keeping them fresh and attractive for years longer than regular glass.
AR UV – offers the combination of anti-reflective / AR glass and UV glass.
Acrylic – Acrylic is a good quality, lightweight and shatter-resistant glazing material. Ideal for the larger frame or where safety is a consideration.
We do offer other specialist glass/glazing options, for more information, please contact us.
