Williamson Art Gallery and Museums Requirements
The conservation experts at the Williamson Art Gallery wanted to reduce the amount of damaging UV rays entering through their polycarbonate roof, yet maintain the natural light.
ARC Window Films are specialists in fade protection and have a range of products specifically designed to reduce damaging UV rays, with a number of options suitable for installation to polycarbonate. ARC Window Films supplied and installed a product specifically designed for installation to polycarbonate. The product can reduce damaging UV rays by up to 99%, yet allow visible light to enter.
The exhibits and artwork below are now much better protected against fading, yet the desirable natural light is allowed in to light the room.
The diffusing effect of the film also counteracts uneven lighting and “sunbeam” affects, as the light is spread consistently over the exhibits. This makes for a much more pleasant viewing experience for visitors.
The window film installed to the overhead glazing at the Williamson Art gallery will help to protect the priceless works of art, without adversely affecting the lighting in the exhibitions.
