The glass as an important element in your picture frame

The choice of glass for your picture frame is large. It is therefore all the more important to analyse exactly which glass makes sense for your purposes. In addition to the classic glasses, museum glass is also very popular with us. You can observe the differences between the various types of glass in this video:

 

Museum glass is often used in museums, because this glass ensures an unrestricted display of the artwork. Due to the anti-reflective and high-quality white glass, the works of art are displayed true to the original. Disturbances caused by annoying reflections or a greenish tint are thus eliminated. But this glass can not only be used in museums. Of course, museum glass can also be used in your own four walls if you want a faithful reproduction of your picture or photo. Definitely this glass offers many advantages: It is non-reflective, has a high color rendering and offers UV protection.

 

Museum glass from Schott & Tru Vue

In our HALBE online shop you will find museum glass from Schott and Tru Vue on offer. Schott museum glass is a high-quality white glass, which is used especially for the faithful representation of works of art. This glass offers several advantages:

  • Anti-reflective
  • Smooth surface
  • UV protection

 

Due to the low reflections, an optimal colour rendition is achieved. Schott museum glass is available in three different versions. The Schott Mirogard has a thickness of three millimetres and offers an optimal anti-reflective coating and a true-to-the-original colour reproduction. Schott Mirogard Plus offers UV protection in addition to unadulterated colour reproduction and is therefore particularly suitable for pictures with conservation requirements.

 

Schott Mirogard Protect is 4.4 millimetres thicker than the other two lenses and offers even higher UV protection, namely 97 percent. In addition, it protects the artwork from glass splinters by means of a film incorporated into the glass. Be careful not to hang the picture frame with museum glass opposite a fixed light and only light it indirectly. Despite strong anti-reflective coating, residual reflections may occur. You should also clean the glass carefully, as cleaning residues are more visible here than with conventional glass. Schott museum glass is therefore ideal when conservation requirements prevail and when the picture is to be hung in indirect lighting.

 

Another museum glass from our range is Optium Museum Acrylic from Tru Vue. This is an acrylic glass that has many positive properties:

  • Anti-reflective
  • Shatterproof
  • Scratch resistant
  • Antistatic
  • UV protection
  • Light

 

Thanks to the patented Optium technology, the museum glass from Tru Vue colours is reproduced without distortion and the reflection is very low. This glass is particularly suitable for sensitive work due to its antistatic properties. Furthermore, the image is protected up to 99 percent from UV radiation with this glass.
However, please note that before using the Optium Museum Acrylic, the films attached to both sides must be removed. You should also clean the glass carefully, as residues are more noticeable with this glass than with conventional glass. Tru Vue's museum glass is ideal for exhibitions and for objects that have conservation requirements. No matter which glass you ultimately choose, you are guaranteed to find what you are looking for at HALBE!
