  • TruGuard UV Protection blocks 98% of harmful UV light rays.

  • Provides conservation protection without glare protection.

General Glass Cleaning :

When cleaning glass always use an approved glass cleaner and a lint free cloth. Do Not spray glass cleaner directly onto the glass or allow glass cleaning liquid to flow between the glass and the frame. This may damage the frame and/or your artwork. It is best if the glass cleaner is sprayed onto a lint free cloth first before cleaning the glass
