Specialist Glass


Over time, the ultraviolet (UV) rays in everyday light take a toll on artwork. Paper can become faded, discoloured, and brittle; causing irreversible damage that ruins the artwork. The solution to this potentially disastrous problem is the use of conservation grade, UV protective glass.

Conservation glass is an ideal choice for framing original art, limited edition prints and other valued works of art. Conservation glass is manufactured using a coating process of microscopic, silica-based UV blocking agents which are cured onto the surface of a lower iron substrate to produce an ultra protective glass that enhances true colours and acts as a sunscreen for artwork, blocking most harmful light rays helping protect framed pieces, keeping them fresh and attractive for years longer than regular glass.

Ashcraft Framing can recommend when you should consider using conservation glass to protect your precious works of art.
