Conservation Framing

For the most precious artwork, family heirlooms  or indeed complete collections of centuries old pieces, conservation framing needs to be employed to protect artwork from the damage caused by UV light, previously used poor quality framing products and damage caused  by  the use of non acid free materials.  

In conservation framing the use  of reversible materials and techniques designed to protect artwork is  always used in order that  the original artwork   remains unchanged.

A mount and frame should always be selected to protect as well as enhance a picture. Unfortunately, some mounting and framing techniques not only fail to protect, but are potentially damaging to works of art. 'Conservation framing' is a term used to describe the use of materials and techniques which provide protection to framed works of art on paper. There are different levels according to the quality and specification of the materials used.

Paper is sensitive to its surroundings: it can be adversely affected by damp, changes in temperature and humidity, restriction of movement and exposure to light. Paper will also react to the materials with which it is in contact such as acidic boards and self adhesive tapes. Damage caused by adverse conditions can be seen in pictures with mount burns, foxing (small brown spots), fading of pigments or darkening and increasing brittleness of the paper.

At Genesis we care about our   customers’ artwork  and when conservation framing is required we  use only the highest quality products including Museum quality mountboard tapes and  Museum glass that will protect against harmful light rays  offering  98% protection of artwork  from harmful indoor and outdoor UV light rays.
