- To protect highly light sensitive 16th century illuminated manuscripts during permanent display.
Construction of tarebox® microclimate frames with Optium Museum Acrylic® and display cases made with UltraVue® Laminated Glass.
Sealed display enclosure
Tarebox® microclimate frames using Optium Museum Acrylic® were designed to help buffer environmental fluctuations, sealing the artifact within its own environment. The frames are placed in display cases made with UltraVue® Laminated Glass.
The anti-reflective properties of Optium Museum Acrylic® and UltraVue® Laminated Glass cut light reflections down to 1.6% and 1% respectively, compared to 8% with standard glass. This allows viewers to see the documents without distracting reflections.
Safety & Security
Optium Museum Acrylic® is shatter resistant. If UltraVue® Laminated Glass breaks, shards remain in place to safeguard against injury and damage until the glass is replaced. This product is ideal for valuable works, high traffic areas, and public event spaces.
