UV protection explained

Ultra violet light is invisible and lies between 280 and 380 nanometres on the electromagnetic spectrum.

The percentage of UV Block as stipulated per specified product is the percentage of only ultraviolet light that is blocked.

Normal visible light lies between 380 and 780 nanometres. This is the light we see during the day. UV coated glass does not protect against this. If a customer uses UV Block glass and exposes the artwork to visible light, it offers no protection. It is important for a customer to understand that hanging an artwork with any UV coated glass in visible sunlight will offer no protection!

Make sure you understand reflection = the objects reflected like a mirror. A mirror has 100 % reflection, float glass 8 % and AR 70 1 %. There is not NO reflection.

Light transmission is the light that ends up on the artwork. The higher the transmission the clearer the artwork.
