Non-reflecting glass, while reducing reflection, does reduce clarity and vibrancy of colours of your pictures. It is ideal for framing photos and posters that are going to be hung on a wall exposed to sunlight. Glare reduces visibility. Non-reflecting glass frames eliminate glare.

Conservation glass reduces 99.9% of UV rays from both external and internal light sources and is an excellent choice for protecting artwork from damaging UV rays. Exposure to the harsh rays of the sun can cause colours to fade. Conservation glass frames will ensure that your artwork retains its colours for a long time. So even if you hang your photos in a sunny area, they will stay as good as new for several decades to come.

Museum glass in addition to providing the benefits of conservation glass with the added benefit of providing “amazing clarity” and reflection reduction. Museum glass is especially effective for 3D items. While museum glass is more expensive than other glass varieties, it has properties that justify its price. If you have a unique piece of art that you want to protect and showcase at the same time, you should opt for museum glass for your picture frame.
