Glazing

Your artwork deserves the best glazing material available in the industry and Mill Creek Art and Framing is committed to provide the best products. We carry regular, non-glare, UV Protective, non-glare conservation and Museum glass. Our design staff will be happy to recommend the appropriate glazing for your project.

REGULAR GLASS

A constant exposition of your fine art to natural or artificial light will damage it. However, for frames displayed in a controlled lighting environment, we recommend and use the Premier Clear® framing glass from Tru Vue. Acid-free materials, such as mats, are in this case highly recommended. For fine art and valuable artwork, we recommend you to use our UV protective glass

NON-GLARE GLASS

If your art is exposed to direct light; the glass can cause glare and distract the viewers from the framed piece. You may want to use, in this case, the non-glare glass which will suppress the glaring and the mirror effect that a regular glass may have. The Reflection Control® glass “is chemically finished to scatter light as it strikes the glass”. It protects your piece from unwanted glare and distortion. This glass does not provide UV Protection.

UV-PROTECTIVE GLASS

Over time, indoor and outdoor UV rays will affect your artwork. They can cause fading, thus preventing you from enjoying the original colors your photographs, for example. Paper item arts can be discolored and irreversibly damaged. Our Conservation Clear® framing glass helps block ultraviolet rays and enhance the colors while protecting from fading. It will help you preserve and enjoy your art for years. The UV Protective glass blocks 99% of harmful UV light rays.

NON-GLARE CONSERVATION GLASS

A combination of a non-glare glass and a UV protective glass, perfect for those who display their art in a bright room. It enhances the beauty of the artwork, protects from fading and discoloration and eliminates reflection and glaring. The Conservation Reflection Control® with 99% UV Protection is perfect for shiny photographs, exposed to direct light.

MUSEUM GLASS

The best glass option for all framed works of art. It is the highest quality anti-reflective, UV protective glass in the framing industry. It produces an ultra protective, nearly invisible finish. It protects against 99% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays and it is the best glass product against reflection and distortion. This glass will change the perception of your art. It is an attractive display and the most durable quality.
