Museum Glass ®

The “Glass Choices” image below contains three types of glass commonly used in picture framing, all of which have UV filtering properties. At Merrell’s House, we offer several choices for protecting your artwork. For works that are especially large or heavy, going to be shipped or put in children’s rooms, we recommend acrylic. We highly suggest using glass or acrylic that is coated with a UV filtering layer to protect your valuable artwork.  
Glass choices including Museum Glass

On the left side of the frame is Conservation Clear® which looks much like the glass used in the windows of your home but with a transparent UV coating added. You can see a lot of reflection with this type of glass.

On the right side of the frame is an example of Conservation Reflection Control® glass. This is very similar to the old non-glare glass that used to be used in picture framing. Reflection control glass tends to dull the color or blur whatever is behind it. The farther away from the glass, the more the blur.

On the middle is TruVue’s Museum Glass® which gives the appearance of no glass at all. In addition to the UV filtering layer, there is an anti-glare coating that amazingly seems to make the glass disappear. Ironically, it is truly beautiful because you do not notice it.
