VariGuard Will Demonstrate Its Smartglass Panels to Artifact Conservators This Week at the AIC Annual Meeting

VariGuard now offers conservators electronically dimmable display panels that provide the best protection for their light-sensitive artifacts.  Dr.

Seth Van Voorhees will demonstrate VariGuard’s SmartGlass products at the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (“AIC”) 43rd annual meeting (Booth 513) being held from May 13-15 in Miami, FL.

Dr. Van Voorhees, President of Research Frontiers’ VariGuard division, commented: “Our display panels offer the highest level of protection against UV and visible light damage in the industry and they are being used in cases, frames and wall cases to protect various light sensitive artifacts in museums internationally. Testing of VariGuard SmartGlass cases at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum demonstrated more than a 90% reduction in artifact light exposure.”

Reinforcing the benefits of VariGuard panels and how they limit light exposure, the Smithsonian National Postal Museum is presenting a paper at the AIC Annual Meeting entitled “(Year of Light) Lighten Up: Enhancing Visitor Experiences,” which will discuss the positive impact that VariGuard panels have in protecting valuable artifacts and enhancing the visitor experience.

VariGuard display panels instantly switch between their light-blocking and transparent states to provide the best protection for light-sensitive artifacts. By limiting light-exposure only to those times when artifacts are being viewed, VariGuard SmartGlass panels enable:

  • Higher room illumination levels
  • Longer exhibition periods at lower levels of light exposure
  • Lower rotation related costs

To learn more about the AIC 43rd annual meeting, please see the event website.

More information about VariGuard panels for display cases, wall cases and frames is available at www.VariGuard.com.
