UV resistant glass

In addition to regular glass (clear Float glass), anti-reflective glass and acrylic, we often use UV-resistant glass, which is often called Museum glass, in the framing shop.

UV glass (or UV-resistant glass) is a type of glass designed to prevent harmful ultraviolet (UV) light from penetrating and damaging artwork, photographs or other valuable objects framed and displayed under glass. UV light can cause fading, discoloration and other types of damage to artwork over time, especially when exposed to direct sunlight or other sources of UV light. UV glass helps protect against this damage by blocking most of the UV light coming through the glass. UV glass is often made by adding a special coating or layer to the glass that blocks UV light while allowing visible light to pass through. This type of glass is often used when framing artwork, photographs and other valuable items that are displayed in areas of high natural light or where UV light may be present. Although UV glass is more expensive than regular glass, it can help preserve the quality and value of artwork and other items over time, making it a valuable investment for collectors and art lovers. Our UV-resistant glass, from 70 to 99% UV-resistant, is a quality product from Tru Vue.
