Why choose UV Protection?

UV protection reduces fading and other damage caused by UV light over time. Leading authorities on preservation recommend using glazing that blocks at least 97% UV light. Conservation grade glazing products surpass this standard in providing up to 99% UV protection, the maximum level of protection available in the industry.

What factors cause damage to art, photographs and other personal keepsakes?

Indoor and outdoor UV light rays contribute to irreversible damage. Colors may fade and shift and the materials that make up the piece may become brittle or yellow.
