CONSERVATION CLEAR - SPECIALIST GLASS
Conservation Clear is an ideal choice for framing original art, limited prints and other valued works of art. It enhances the true colours of the art work and more importantly blocks 99.9% of harmful UV light. Ultraviolet rays in everyday light take a toll on artwork. Paper can become faded, discoloured, and brittle, causing irreversible damage that ruins the artwork. Conservation Clear framing glass withUV Protection acts as a sunscreen for artwork, blocking most harmful light rays and helps protect framed pieces, keeping them fresh and attractive for years longer than regular glass
