Guardian Clarity™ anti-reflective coated glass, the ‘Unseen Hero’ of museum displays, helps by allowing visitors to focus on the exhibits.

Museum glass displays protect precious artefacts from damage or distress, whilst presenting them in their best light. But sometimes glass – through unwanted glare or reflections – can create unfortunate obstructions to the view.

Guardian Clarity™ anti-reflective coated glass, the ‘Unseen Hero’ of museum displays, helps by allowing visitors to focus on the exhibits.

It can be unseen at Stand #A080 Hall 03.2 at Exponatec, the International Trade Fair for Museums Conservation and Heritage, November 22-24 in Cologne, Germany.

Guardian Clarity glass enables a light transmission of 98% and a reflection of less than 1%, compared to architectural float glass, which offers a light transmission of 90% and a reflection of 8%.

In combination with Guardian UltraClear® glass substrate, Guardian Clarity provides maximum transparency while reducing unwanted reflection and glare to a minimum.

The MNHA (Musée National d’Histoire et d’Art) in Luxembourg has selected Guardian Clarity to highlight, protect and preserve more than 250 items in its Urban Archeology exhibition, inaugurated in June 2017.

The precious artefacts, recovered from the territory of Luxembourg City, take the visitors on a tour of its inhabitants’ lives during the medieval and modern periods.

Mr. Polfer, Director at the MNHA, comments: “Planning an exhibition is all about how it’s going to work with the people; our role is to bring real things to them. In museums, the best glass is the one that you do not see, that does not disturb the visitors from looking at the objects.

We can say it’s mission accomplished with Guardian Clarity glass. Our scenographer’s job was also much easier when it came to the lighting because he didn’t have to fight against bad reflections.”
