Picture frame - Glazing

The glazing we supply is PLEXIGLAS® XT 0A000 (20070) or an equivalent standard,
it is largely UV absorbing (largely resistant) which means it will not discolour or fade.
Conforms to all BSI safety standards / ISO 7823-2

Crystal clear and shatterproof

Plexiglas is the modern
clean & safe alternative to
traditional glass glazing

Plexiglas should not be mixed up with styrene or acrylic sheet which is the glazing
material most department and high street stores and other manufacturing  websites use,
these are very thin substrates that bend and twist and will fade and discolour over time as they
are very thin and not UV absorbing (resistant).

Occasionally we get asked if we can send traditional glass by post, If glass is used and does break in transit it’s highly likely that the glass will damage the frame and anything else within the same parcel which would be very dangerous and   Plexiglas ‘ is,  in our opinion such a  good material it is an unnecessary risk to take.

However, if you really do require glass, we will do as we are asked on the understanding
that you accept all risk of damage and or breakage in transit, as compensation is not available
for any delivery where glass is used.

If you are prepared to accept this risk, please place your order as normal and then e-mail or
include the instruction in the special instructions box.

For orders where we  use our own delivery drivers or orders to be picked up in person, using glass presents no problems.
