Glass and Perspex

It is in the choice of glazing that produces the greatest variable in both effect and cost.

We have a make of 2mm picture glass that has good clarity and we use this when cost is an issue.

We also offer conservation glass or UV Perspex which eliminates nearly all harmful UV rays.

If reflections need to be reduced or if the artwork is very dark, we can use an anti-reflective glass which gives almost perfect clarity.

Museum glass which is an anti-reflective glass with a UV filtering coating gives both clarity and protection from harmful sunlight.

Large frames over a certain size have to be glazed with Perspex. This has the advantage of making frames safe and more easily transported. We can also offer a scratch-resistant form of Perspex.
