Traditionally, curators were limited to glass panels supported by cumbersome metal frames to protect their collections. With the advent of crystal clear acrylic, the darkness of glass and its opaque structural supports are no longer a necessity. Acrylic is a perfect material for art conservation due to its optical clarity, light weight and available UV-filtering, non-glare, anti-static and abrasion resistant coatings.
For over forty years, Architectural Plastics has protected and preserved art for several world class museums, exhibit houses, galleries and private collectors. Acrylic museum display cases can be built to your specifications or designed to your project requirements. Available materials include high-grade acrylics like Acrylite, Tru Vue Optium Museum acrylic and other optical grade, cell cast acrylics.
