1. Harmful Light Rays Harmful UV, ultraviolet light rays, on artwork is cumulative and irreversible. Fortunately, glass technology has improved vastly. There are now several types of glass to protect artwork from the harmful effects of UV rays.
2. Types of Glass
We recommend and use TruGuard® brand glass, including Conservation Clear, Conservation Ultraclear, Conservation Reflection Control, Conservation Prefect Vue, and Museum Glass to protect delicate and sensitive artwork.
3. Need for Protection
Keep in mind; once damage from UV light has occurred, it can never be reversed. It is important to understand what can be done to minimize and prevent this type of damage. Ask us about frame glass before installing or replacing glass.
Glass manufacturing techniques and technologies have improved drastically over the last ten years, rendering older glass installations obsolete and potentially harmful to some delicate paintings and priceless artworks.
