Non Reflective Glass.
Non Reflective Glass for pictures is an alternative to Clear Glass which is the most common glass in used in framing.
It is used to prevent reflection, so as you look at your picture on the wall you will see the picture and not anything else which clear glass would reflect.
Non reflective glass for pictures is used where there is a lot of light in a room, as reflection increases with light.
This glass DOES NOT PROTECT the picture in the frame, which some assume it does, it only prevents reflection.
This glass doesn’t suit every picture but when it is used it can be very effective.
It will cost more than Clear Glass but if it’s needed it’s worth the extra.
Next Month’s Did you Know will be about Conservation Clear Glass.
