Most people don’t realise the importance of the glass in their frames. Regular glass or Diffused glass offer no protection to photographs or artwork and the images will be damaged by light over time.
Look at the samples above:
The images on the right show what happens when photographs or prints or anything you want to preserve is framed using Museum Glass, Conservation Clear and Ultra Vue Glass, they are undamaged by light and are preserved.
The images on the left are framed with regular clear glass and are damaged by uv light and have faded.
If you are framing something of value, sentimental or monetary, use one of the three Uv glass types to preserve it for future generations!
If you are going to frame something, frame it to last!
