When you think of anti-reflective glass what comes to mind? Perhaps eyewear? Or glass for framed photography? There are many types and applications for anti-reflective glass. For example, anti-reflective glass is often used in commercial spaces like vehicle showrooms, restaurants, sports arenas, zoos, aquariums, retail store fronts, museums, bus stops and a number of other spaces. In addition to its varied use across countless industries, anti-reflective glass has many applications and advantages over normal non-coated glass.
But not all anti-reflective glass is created equal. Below we dive into the uses for anti-reflective glass and the many brand benefits for industries including marine, gaming, sports, security, industrial, medical, advertising and utilities/wayfinding.
What is Anti-Reflective Glass?
Anti-reflective glass is optically coated glass to virtually eliminate reflections and increase light transmission. Superior anti-reflective glass will reduce surface glare, increase brightness and offer better contrast definition. In addition, anti-reflective coatings can be designed for the UV, Visible or IR spectrums on custom optics, acrylic, polycarbonate and heat-tempered glass. The thin film coatings on Vista Anti-Reflective® glass disrupt the energy contained in light waves causing them to flow out of sync. This disrupted wave pattern virtually eliminates reflections from the surface.
