When safety or weight are overriding considerations we offer plastic glazing. Plastic glass is also available in a variety thicknesses and finishes.
Standard Clear and Diffused.
Styrene Plastic Glass is lightweight and shatter-resistant. Ideal where safety is a consideration, but does require careful handling and is available as either clear or diffused.
This clear acrylic is very difficult to scratch and able to withstand greater impact than glass. It is also available with UV filters thus providing protection from UV damage.
Anti Reflective Museum Quality.
Tru Vue Optium(R)
Anti-Reflective coated acrylic with 99% UV filtering. Recommended for when maximum clarity and protection are of importance.
Conservation Grade UV Protection
Conservation grade glass helps to protect your artwork, photographs, textiles and keepsakes by filtering out harmful UV light rays that are present in outdoor and indoor light. UV light rays can contribute to fading and deterioration of your treasured piece.
Conservation Clear®glass effectively blocks up to 99% of UV light rays to help protect against fading without anti-glare enhancement.
Conservation Reflection Control®glass has a very fine acid etching on one side that scatters light to minimise unwanted glare. Like conservation clear it effectively blocks up to 99% of UV light rays to help protect against fading but with the advantage of anti-glare enhancement.
Museum Glass®anti-reflection (AR) picture framing glass with Conservation Grade UV Protection is the best glazing option available for art, photographs and other important keepsakes. Museum glass provides maximum clarity and maximum protection.
