Guardian Industries Corp., a global leader in glass technology, launched its Inspiration UV Glass recently at the Décor Expo in Atlanta.

Inspiration UV is a coated glass product for professional framers everywhere, from the picture framing industry to gallery owners to museums, developed at the company's Science & Technology Center in Carleton, Mich.

Guardian's Inspiration UV Glass blocks up to 98 percent of harmful ultraviolet rays (300-380 nanometers) that can damage or fade framed photographs and prints. Inspiration UV Glass will not change the color or appearance of framed pieces because of its neutral color and clarity.

A plastic film protects each piece of Guardian's Inspiration UV Glass from scratching during transportation or in framing operations. The film, which adheres to the coated side of Inspiration UV Glass, eliminates any confusion about which surface should face the artwork during the framing process. Inspiration UV Glass cuts easily by hand or with wall-mounted glasscutters.

"Consumers want a high performance product to protect their investments and photos from discoloration and framers want simple-to-handle glass that provides value to their customers while protecting their expensive glass inventory,” says Tony Hobart, sales group vice president. “Guardian delivers both with Inspiration UV Glass."

In addition, Guardian featured its Inspiration NG Glass, a framing glass that reduces light glare on photos, diplomas or framed art and Inspiration CL Glass, a clear glass, at the Décor Expo. Inspiration NG is available with a UV blocking coating.

Décor Expo Atlanta is the world’s largest trade-only art and framing event. It opened September 20 and ran through September 22.
