Glazing For Picture Framing

At Newframes we use high quality “WaterWhite” Glass in our bespoke frames as STANDARD. Other options are available see below.

Why “WaterWhite” Glass makes a difference

Normal glass contains many impurities, such as iron, which give its blue-green hue and adversely affect the colour of the image beneath.

Our “WaterWhite” Glass is made in a special way that removes most impurities, resulting in a near perfect rendition of the image and mount.

“WaterWhite” Glass is standard at no extra cost, which is another reason why Newframes is so special.

Oooops had a frame glass break, we can reglaze it for you. Usually carried out the Same Day*
