Repairing Broken Glass in Picture Frames – Expert Advice

Have you ever experienced the heartbreaking moment when your cherished picture frame shatters? Whether it’s due to an accidental bump or the betrayal of a command strip, dealing with broken glass in a frame can be both distressing and dangerous. If you’re facing this predicament, you’re probably searching for reliable and professional solutions. You’re in the right place.

Understanding the Risk: Why You Shouldn’t Remove Broken Glass Yourself

First and foremost, it’s crucial to understand the risks involved in handling broken glass. The jagged edges of shattered glass can pose a significant injury risk – to you, and to your art! Therefore, we strongly advise against attempting to remove broken glass from a frame by yourself. A safer approach is to cover the broken areas with painter’s tape to prevent further damage and injury, and then bring the piece to a professional in a plastic bag, like a garbage bag.

Professional Glass Replacement Options

When you bring your damaged frame to us, you’ll discover a range of high-quality glass replacement options. Our experts can guide you in choosing the best type of glass for your needs:

UV Protective Glass: Ideal for preserving the color and integrity of your artwork, UV protective glass shields against harmful ultraviolet rays, which can cause fading over time.

Anti-Reflective Glass: If glare is a concern, anti-reflective glass is an excellent choice. It minimizes reflections and enhances the visibility of your artwork or photographs, ensuring they can be viewed from any angle without distraction.

Acrylic Glass Alternatives: Never going glass again? For those seeking a lightweight and shatter-resistant option, we offer thick cast acrylic glass, known for its clarity and longevity. This high-quality plexiglass does not yellow over time, ensuring your artwork remains brilliantly clear. Additionally, we provide museum quality anti-reflective acrylic options, offering both UV protection and minimal glare for a superior viewing experience.

 

Frame Restoration or Replacement

Alongside glass repair, we also assess the condition of the frame itself. If the frame has suffered damage, our skilled technicians can often restore it to its original glory. However, in cases where the damage is beyond repair, we offer a wide selection of new frames to suit your style and the artwork’s aesthetic.
