Glass 

Float glass is used as standard. It is available in two, three and four millimeter gauge and can be clear or diffused (i.e. non-reflective). Glass cut to customers measurements is also available.

Waterwhite

An ideal alternative to ordinary float glass. A completely colourless clear float glass offering outstanding colour reproduction. Also available as Reflection Control.

UV Glass

UV Clear glass is recommended for framing original art, limited prints and other valued work. Over time the ultraviolet rays can cause paper to become faded, discoloured and brittle causing irrevesible damage to artwork..
