Acrylic is half the weight of glass and shatter resistant
Safeguards against injury and damage to art work and visitors.

Anti-static protection exceeds that of glass
Immediate eliminates static charge.  Makes for safer, easier framing and less cleaning.

Abrasion resistant
A durable hard coat protects against scratches from cleaning and general exposure to the public.


The Work
