Museum Glass

Tom providing UV protection for picture frames

As light-induced fading is one of the only damages that cannot be easily restored, it is vital that important and valuable artworks are displayed in conditions that minimise risk and impact. 

Our conservation framing team provides UV protective glazing options with 70-99% reduction of UV rays from sunlight. This includes museum glass which offers both UV protection and a non-reflective clarity for display.

We are also able to advise on UV protective options for windows and environmental conditions, as well as restoring any impact from past framing which has led to acidic decay and deterioration

Museum glass

Our technicians offer museum glass to artworks that require strong UV protection and a clear display. Museum glass has a less reflective quality, allowing you to see your artwork clearly without the glare of lighting or your own reflection distracting from the details.

UV protection for sensitive artworks

We highly recommend UV protection for the following artworks:

  • Colour prints
  • Watercolours
  • Ink drawings
  • Pastels
  • Posters
  • Handwritten documents
  • Autographed memorabilia or paper
  • Lithographs
  • Engravings, etchings & mezzotints
  • Woodblock prints

Sensitive artworks on paper, textiles, rice paper, parchment, ivory require UV protection and conservation-friendly framing materials to ensure their ongoing safety.

Please contact our team for a range of protective glazing options, these can be customised to fit a new or original frame.

Framing & Mounting

How much will it cost?

The restorers at Fine Art Restoration Company were a delight to work with. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very helpful and patient. Their work was top-notch, both my paintings have given new life and completely renewed our experience of viewing them. Highly Recommended.

Fine Art Restoration collected our large oil painting and delivered it with impeccable care. The restoration of the damaged artwork was expertly carried out, bringing back subtle colouring, and included the repair of broken and missing details of the gesso on the frame such that they were perfectly matched. We were delighted with the communication throughout and with the results achieved.
