When light hits glass, not all visible light travels through to the artwork. Instead, 8% of the visible light gets reflected from the glass surface, creating the light spots on the glass that we call reflections. While glazing is an important part of any frame to protect the work from the environment, it is not always desired because it can create an obstruction at the front of the framed piece.

We treat our Artglass products with special invisible coatings that help light travel through the glass barrier and create the best possible display conditions. That’s why our products are chosen by museums, galleries, interior designers, and individuals around the world.

HOW IT WORKS?

There are three main components that makes us the leaders in quality and transparency

01

PREMIUM CLARITY SUBSTRATE

Our anti-reflective product line is all about clarity. We know that just eliminating reflection is not enough to provide total transparency and color precision. That's why our anti-reflective product line uses only ultra-clear glass substrate.

02

HIGH-PRECISION COATINGS

Our vertical, double-sided coating technology coats both sides of the glass simultaneously. This means that the resulting glass coating is uniform and consistent without any visible defects.

03

WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION

Our quality standards are kept in-check through our incredible network of custom framers. Their high framing standards ensure that only the best quality materials are used for your custom frames.

PRODUCT RECOMMENDATIONS

Most artworks will benefit from anti-reflective glass; however, we have learned that in some cases the difference is especially impressive

Dark artworks

Reflections are especially noticeable on dark colors. Make sure your dark hues stand out by using anti-reflective glazing!

Detailed art

Anti-reflective glass makes it easy to see every brush stroke and miniscule detail, displaying your artwork with the utmost care.

Deep shadowboxes

Depth in frames and shadowboxes can magnify the surrounding reflections and make your framed pieces hard to see. Choose AR glass for the maximum impact!

Image

Informational displays

Whenever displaying information that needs to be easily accessible to viewers, anti-reflective glass is the best solution.

Displays in light environments

Anti-reflective glass assures that your artwork stands out even in the brightest environments. Consider UV protective glass for the best protection against the ultraviolet light.

HOW CAN YOU CHECK IF THE FRAMING HAS BEEN DONE WITH ANTI-REFLECTIVE GLASS?

Anti-reflective glass has a characteristic reflection color, which occurs from light wave manipulation through AR coatings. Anti-reflective glass has a neutral green or blue reflection color that can be seen from an angle. It's characteristic to all anti-reflective glass and you see it on prescription glasses.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANTI-REFLECTIVE AND NON-GLARE GLASS?

Anti-reflective glass is ultra-smooth, clear glass processed with optical nano coatings that eliminate reflections. The result is smooth glass that's ultra-transparent and easy to clean. Non-glare glass is treated with a 'matte' finish that diffuses light, resulting in decreased glare. However, the etched surface is harder to clean and obscures the details in the framed work. Non-glare glass is treated with a 'matte' finish that diffuses light, resulting in removed glare. However, the etched surface is harder to clean and diffuses the details of the framed work.

WHY IS ANTI-REFLECTIVE GLASS MORE EXPENSIVE?

The quality that is expected for framing treasured artworks requires a consistency and quality that is achieved only through high precision coating technology. Anti-reflective glass is coated in special vacuum coating equipment that bombards the glass with microscopic particles that manipulate the incoming light waves. This process requires not only incredible technological know-how but also many people, complex logistics, and concentrated energy. However, invisible glass in front of your artwork will protect and display your art for years to come.
