Unseen hero of museum glass displays

Museum glass displays protect precious artefacts from damage or distress, while 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 helps by allowing visitors to focus on the exhibits.

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 selected Guardian Clarity to highlight, protect, and preserve more than 250 items in its Urban Archeology exhibition, inaugurated in June 2017. The artefacts, recovered from the territory of Luxembourg City, take the visitors on a tour of its inhabitants’ lives during the medieval and modern periods.
