Important Purposes of Picture Frame:
Picture frame glazing acts as a barrier against dust, dirt, and pollutants, preventing potential damage to the artwork's surface over time and shielding it from physical contact.
Specialized glazing blocks or reduces harmful UV light, safeguarding artwork from fading and color deterioration, preserving its original quality.
Glazing options can minimize glare from lighting or natural sources, enhancing the viewing experience by minimizing distracting reflections.
The choice of glazing influences the framed artwork's appearance, with options ranging from non-reflective to those with subtle reflections or sheen, allowing for customization based on desired aesthetics.
