What is a lens cover?
Lens covers take the place of, and give the same look as glass when framing. We offer a Framing Grade Museum Quality Acrylic in both a Clear and Non-Glare (Matte) finish, and a Clear Oversize Lens Cover designed for shipping frames unassembled in a tall vertical box.
Our current lens covers available for online purchase are Clear Acrylic, Non-Glare Acrylic and Clear Oversize lens covers.
Our Clear Acrylic Lens Covers are just that...Clear.
Our Non-Glare Acrylic Lens Covers help to dramatically reduce the amount of reflection, sunlight, or overhead lighting that can be seen when looking at your frame. Additional advantages are that Non-Glare is also less likely to show any dust or scratches.
A typical disadvantage to Non-Glare, is that the depth of color and image quality is reduced by an estimated 5%. Our Non-Glare Acrylic Lens Cover should NOT be used within Shadow Box style frames or when there is a significant distance in between the Cover and Print, as there may be an additional loss of image quality. Available in sizes up to 42" x 62".
Our oversize Clear Lens Covers offer a look similar to glass, in an optical grade. They are UV protected and stable, while remaining virtually unbreakable and flexible enough to ship as lightweight plastic. Similar to Glass and other Clear Plastics, Clear will have a reflection from light and other objects. The Clear Lens Cover is flexible and used for shipping oversized frames in a tall vertical box. Available in sizes up to 42" x 62".
Additional lens covers such as clear and non-glare styrene, PETG and a UV PET, are available to bulk commercial customers. (email inquiries only)
Our Plastic Lens covers can be cleaned with most ordinary cleaners that are made to be used with plastics.
* Please note: Both a Lens Cover and Backing are required to properly use our type of frame. Our Custom frame area allows our customers, including smaller frame shops to purchase the frame metal and hardware only. (Frame Kit)
What exactly is a Frame Kit? This is available for those customer who already have their own backing or lens cover materials.
