  • Conservation Reflection Control: blocks 99% of UV rays and reduces glare from lights.
  • Museum Glass: blocks 99% of UV rays and allows for 97% light transmission, which makes it the clearest and least reflective glass option. Often people look at the display and ask if there is really glass over the picture!
  • Acrylic: comes in clear and non-reflective. It is used most often when weight is a concern or public settings where there is concern about possible broken glass, such as schools.
