When to Use Museum Glass vs. Conservation Glass or Regular Glass:

We often get the question, "What type of glass should I use"? And although all circumstances are different, we always recommend at least a UV filtering, Conservation glass. Many of today's homes are using CFL's which contain UV rays, which means even if your artwork is not in direct sunlight, it could still be getting UV rays which cause sensitive objects to permanently fade over time. If reflection is a problem, Museum Glass is the way to go.

Here are the top reasons to use Museum Glass:
  • For virtually invisible glazing that will enhance colors, brightness and contrast levels of all types of artwork, even posters
  • For protecting valued diplomas or irreplaceable artwork against damage and fading caused by UV light
  • Ideal for framing applications, including shadow boxes, multiple mat or deep framing project
