Anti-reflective glass

Placing an artwork behind glass can cause two problems.

1. The inherent colour of the glass can act as a filter, like looking through green tinted glasses.

2. The surface of the glass can cause reflections detrimental to the viewer's experience.

The artwork pictured is being tested with a piece of premium float over the left side, and a piece of AR (anti-reflective) glass over the right but only down as far as the woman's chin. The results are clear to see.

We work with all of the types of glass listed below. For bulk orders of cut glass please see trade services.
