Glass

 

Ultimat offers two upgrades for glass which are as follows:

Conservation Glass
This is identical in appearance to standard glass, but has a UV coating on one side of the glass, which prevents harmful UV rays from passing through to the artwork. As a result, the artwork is preserved from light damage for longer. Normal glass will reflect about 50% of UV light, whereas Conservation Glass reflects 98%.

Mirogard
Simply put, Mirogard is the clearest picture framing glass in the world! Utilised by institutions such as The Tate, The National Gallery, The Royal Academy of Art to name but a few, Mirogard is an optically coated waterwhite float glass. In appearance, Mirogard has no colour and allows 100% of light to pass through, in contrast to just 95% with standard glass – the result is that colours are more vibrant with zero colour shift. The optical coatings are identical to that of a camera lens, and hence Mirogard has a very low reflective quality which, can in certain hanging conditions have the appearance that there is simply no glass there at all!
