What is Anti-Reflective Glass?
Anti-reflective glass, also known as museum glass, removes the glare typically seen with standard clear glass. It offers crystal clear transparency even in outdoor or commercial lighting installations. The coating reduces the reflections by over 80%, allowing for more comfortable viewing in many applications. They call it it “the invisible glass”.
Museum Glass is a anti-reflective glass, meaning that it has almost zero glare. This type of Glass is typically used for Picture frames as well as display cases in Museums! You may have heard of it as SCHOTT Amiran Glass. Manufactured in Germany, Amiran Glass has high transparency, reducing reflections.
As a result, you can look at a picture or piece of artwork with no weird reflections from the lights in the room!

Why is Anti-Reflective Glass a must have:
Anti- Reflective glass is important for a lot of displays, such as jewelry cases, store fronts, and Aquariums. Why? Say you go into a nice jewelry store, you want the perfect ring, the one. The jewelry store is super nice inside, you can tell it’s expensive. As you are looking for the perfect ring, and you can’t see through the glass. All you can see is terrible reflections from the light above the display, or even your own reflection. The reflection doesn’t allow you to see all the great options. Which can be a huge problem for the seller, losing business. It goes the same for store fronts and aquariums.
UV radiation is harmful rays that can hurt paintings and drawings. Too much exposure of UV Radiation can damage works of art over time. This will cause fading, cracking, distortion, as well as lifts the surface of the art. Using Anti- Reflective glass is only the first step for Museum Exhibits. Museum directors invest a lot of money and time in making sure the art is safe. They have to keep the humanity to a low, using a UV meter, as well as proper lighting. Most Museums block all harmful UV radiation from coming into the building so it is less to worry about. Anti- Reflective glass is MUST have for museums, as you can see.
Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci
One of the most famous paintings, the Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo da Vinci, has completely changed from over time. It has faded, shrank and even has a yellow layer over it. Scientists have proven it is from flash photography, UV radiation, and just ageing from over time. Scientists removed age spots in the 1950’s, very carefully. Today, the Mona Lisa is in an air conditioned frame, no flash photography is allowed, and people are required to stand back from it.
Image a world without Anti-reflective glass… Your glasses would have back-glare (light hits the back of the lenses, right into your eye). Customers couldn’t see your display on the outside of your store, leading towards a lack of business. There would be point in picture frames or museum exhibits when you can’t what’s on the other side due to the high reflection.
