Because we care about your artwork we recommend the right glass for the job. All paper products require glazing, colours can fade when exposed to ultraviolet light and excessive reflections can ruin the enjoyment of your art. Weight and safety can sometimes be an issue too, and so we provide a wide selection of glazing products to suit your individual needs.
Below is a list of our most commonly used glass products so you can rest assured you're being kept in the picture.
We use only high quality papered 2mm float glass for general work. It can be very reflective and has a slight green cast but is great at keeping costs down.
A high quality clear acrylic which is colour neutral, shatterproof and lightweight. A sound alternative to float glass when framing very large items or for safe transportation.
A clear 2.5mm float glass coated with a UV filter on one side. Recommended as standard for works on fabric or paper of high value, or where colour loss may be an issue.
Krystall® Preservation Clear
Speciality glass with best colour clarity for the truest image transmission and optimal UV block to keep the art protected against bleaching and discolouration.
UV Clear Acrylic
A 2-3mm clear UV filtering acrylic. Excellent where weight is an issue and for protection against breakage.
The best glass option for reflection-free and neutral viewing. Also incorporating a 93.7% UV filter to protect valuable artwork from fading over time. This anti-reflective coating is manufactured using an advanced magnetron sputtering process to deposit a molecular film. This technique guarantees unrivaled consistency, durability and quality. This is truly impressive glass that has to be seen to be believed!
Schott Mirogard® Glass
