We offer 4 types of acrylic glazing for you to choose from. We do not sell regular glass because of shipping. The acrylic glazing we sell is specifically made for picture framing. It is 1/8″ thick.
(AcrReg) Premium Clear acrylic glazing is a general-purpose glazing for indoor framing.
(AcrNg) Reflection control acrylic glazing may be used in areas where art is going to be in an area with bright lighting. It helps highly reflective surfaces from acting like mirrors, glare may distract viewers from the artwork you want to display. Reflection Control acrylic glazing is designed to minimize reflection and show the art from almost any angle.
(AcrRegUV) Conservation Clear acrylic glazing with OP-3 UV Filtering Technology protects works of art from the harmful effects of indoor and outdoor UV light rays. Over time, the ultraviolet rays in everyday indoor and outdoor light take a toll on artwork. Paper can become faded, discolored and brittle; causing irreversible damage that ruins the works of art. Conservation Clear Acrylite with 98% UV protection helps protect art from fading by blocking harmful indoor and outdoor light rays, preserving art for years longer than regular acrylic glazing or regular glass.
(AcrNgUV) Conservation Reflection Control acrylic glazing has all the same properties as the last glass type listed but it also has a reflection control matte finish that gives you glare-free viewing, allowing a clear view of the framed artwork without distortion.
All of these are premium acrylic glazing′s made in the USA. Most forms of artwork are damaged by visible and UV light. Selecting a conservation glazing product offers protection from 98% of the highly damaging UV portion of this light. It should be noted that UV filtering does not eliminate the damage caused by visible light.
