Glass

Our range of picture glass is unparalleled in the picture framing industry. The most exciting advances have been in the Specialist Glass area. As well as protection from UV damage there are a number of ranges of glass that have been treated to become almost invisible. See below for more details.

Regular papered float glass is sold in 2mm, 3mm, 4mm and 6mm thicknesses along with 2mm Diffused glass. For more protection we sell Laminated Safety Glass in 4.4mm and 6.4mm.

Specialist Glass

TruVue from the U.S. produce a variety of Specialist Glass products. Conservation Clear is the most popular UV glass that we sell, a 2.5mm float glass with a very high UV protection. Reflection Control is an acid etched, low reflection glass that comes both with and without a UV coating. TruVue’s Water White AR (without UV protection) and Museum glass (with UV protection) are exceptionally clear types of glass that are almost invisible thanks to TruVue’s proprietary manufacturing process.

Artglass is the most recent addition to our glass range. It is made in a state of the art factory in Europe and features low-iron (water-white) float glass for superb clarity and the most neutral reflected colour in the industry. It is also available with a UV protective coating.

We stock anti reflective Mirogard WaterWhite Glass in 2mm, 3mm and 4mm. There is also Mirogard Plus which has a UV protective coating and Mirogard Protect, a 4.4mm laminated glass for ultimate protection, blocking 99% of harmful UV light and with low iron giving zero colour shift.

Water White MUSEUM Glass is ideal for deep frames and shadow boxes where UV protection, low reflectance and clarity of image are critical.

Artshield is an acrylic abrasion resistant plastic. It is very difficult to scratch while much better able to withstand impacts than glass. It’s other benefits include it being light weight, free from splinters and a much reduced level of static compared to other types of plastic glazing. It is also available with UV filters.
