Glazing decisions require identifying the needs, then balancing the features and drawbacks of each option.
For example, acrylic, or plexiglass, has become the glazing of choice for clients who are as concerned about safety as they are about the preservation of their artwork. Acrylic is often a better option than glass in high-traffic areas because it is shatter-resistant. However, acrylic is more susceptible to scratches than glass and can become cloudy if repeatedly cleaned with harsh or abrasive cleaning products.
By making the right choice upfront, you can save hundreds, if not thousands, in repair or replacement costs down the road.
To make your decision easier, we’ve created a guidebook with a simple 3-step process to help you with your selection.
