For applications where the degree of Ultra Violet (UV) protection provided by Pilkington Optilam™ is insufficient Pilkington Anti-Fade™ may be used. Offering the ultimate in UV screening, this is a range of laminated glass products maunfactured using special interlayers that dramatically reduce UV transmission.
Pilkington Anti-Fade™ should be used where UV light would be a threat to materials, equipment or even people. It is ideal for museum display cases, windows or roofs of art galleries and can allow natural light to enter areas where fine art is being restored.
Fading is a complex phenomenon. It is important to note that damage to items behind glass can also be caused or accelerated by visible and infra red radiation (light and heat) from the sun, internal ambient room temperature and some artificial lighting inside a building emitting UV radiation.
