Art Glass

What is Anti Reflective glass?

When light passes from air into glass and then back into air, the transitions cause part of it to be reflected. 

Artglass AR coating alters the light transmission qualities of glass surfaces, virtually eliminating reflections and maximising light transmission.

Invisible Glass

Conventional picture framing glass typically reflects 8% of incoming light, distracting the viewer with mirror-like reflections. With Artglass AR, light reflection is as low as 0.5% thus offering 16 times less reflection and eliminating any mirror-like effects. Artglass AR provides 99% light transmission, making it practically invisible, so all the viewer observes is pure art.

True Colour Rendering

Neutral colours in reflection - other anti-reflective coatings tend to colour the reflective light, causing green, blue or red reflections that distract from the pure art viewing experience. Artglass AR has the most neutral reflected colour in the industry.

Alternative glazing options 


Conservation glazing

Trusted by the world’s most renowned museums, this state-of-the-art glazing boasts a virtually invisible anti-reflective coating allowing viewers to see the finest details in crystal clear colour neutrality, while its UV-filtering, abrasion resistant acrylic, and anti-static coating offer uncompromising protection and preservation.

Plastic glass

Styrene is a low-cost lightweight and shatter-resistant glazing material. Ideal where safety is a consideration

Mirrors

We supply the glass and fit it into a frame.

We do not supply ornate oval frames but cut glass to fit a square or rectangular frame. 

All glass is safety backed - comes with a film attached to the back of the mirror to keep most of the mirror in one piece in case of breakage.

 " I  cannot express my thanks and gratitude to Phil & Melody enough for such a fast and fabulous service. You were both so lovely and approachable and the fact you were able to complete the frame in time for my Dad's Birthday made his day. We are both so pleased I cannot tell you how much. I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family. Wonderful service. Thank you again." - 5 stars
