There are several different types of glass used in the Custom Picture Framing World of Art. At Thornebrook Gallery we use museum quality materials to present and preserve your artwork. This guide will help you determine which is best for your next project...
Conservation Clear Glass: This ultra protective glass effectively blocks up to 99% of UV light rays to protect against fading and help keep framed pieces brighter, longer. This glass will stand the test of time, safeguarding the personal mementoes and works of art every day for years to come.
Conservation Reflection Control Glass: This protective glass scatters and diffuses light to enhance the beauty of artwork with a matte-like finish. Conservation Reflection Control Glass protects against UV damage.
