Museum Quality UV Acrylic

When it comes to keeping your collectibles and memorabilia safe, you need to ensure you have only the best in state of the art ultra-violet (UV) protection.  Without it, you will lose the value and the quality of your sports keepsake from fading. This will start to degrade your investment and memories.

Regular acrylic cases allow fading over time and lower the quality of your sports memorabilia. This, of course, diminishes the value in your keepsake. While regular acrylic has some UV protection, it's minimal and won't get the job done. Don't allow others to fool you.  Standard acrylic does not have the level of protection required to ensure the quality of your collectible stands the test of time.

What you need is the industry leading standard in museum quality ultra-violet protection. And that's what we do here at Sports Display Cases.

Understanding the extra cost

Don't let other sports case dealer's claims of UV protection fool you.  It needs to be at least 98.0%+ Museum Quality UV. The side effect is that this material costs 4X the amount of regular acrylic. There's no way around it. Others’ claims of 50, 60 and 70% are most likely not accurate and appear are often used in an attempt to fool you. Your first hint is usually the cost of the case. At the end of the day, they simply cannot be made with Museum Quality UV. It's a fact.

Why does it cost more to use UV acrylic? The UV protection is in the actual manufacturing process of the acrylic.  It is not added after the fact. It is not a film or an added coat.  At the end of the day, it's always worth doing, to save your keepsakes.

Not ALL our cases come with the state of the art UV protection.  It is an option that you can choose.  Be sure to add it to your order.  It's well worth the extra investment. We care about your collectible sports memorabilia.

Currently, we are only offering a few cases, without logos, with UV protection.  To find these cases, click on the category of the item you are looking to buy.  If they are available, you will see a box that says museum quality UV protected cases. Click on that link, and you will see the page of available cases. There is a picture shown below, if you need help.

Making the right decision

Again,  we don't make much from your choice to upgrade your casing. It's not about the money for us. It's about us caring. We want our customers to know the risks involved with not getting a proper UV protected case. We also want to educate collectors on others that make claims about the "levels" of protection that they're offering. There is no such thing as partial UV protection.

When comparing cases with our competitors, ask them what the actual UV percentage is.  Ask them to put it in writing (that will help avoid the pretenders). Ask them for the spec sheet. You don't want "partial" protection. That's not going to cut it.

From our UV acrylic manufacturers;

"Some applications, such as fine art and documentation preservation, require a material that absorbs more ultraviolet (UV) energy than ordinary glass with absorbing visible light. ACRYLITE® UV filtering (OP3), Plexiglas® G UF-3, Plexiglas® MC UF-5 and Plaskolite Optix Grade UVF  standard acrylic sheet are some of the finishes and materials that are used and filter out up to 99% of UV rays, as well as some visible light while maintaining the full range of physical properties associated with  standard Plexiglas sheets.  All offer spectrophotometric characteristics that enable them to filter out harmful UV energy. “ For more information click here.

We are incredibly proud of the fact that ours is the industry leader in UV protection. When it comes time to buy your next sports display case, do the right thing. Spend a little extra. Then rest assured that your sports collectible will stand the test of time. You can relax knowing that your investment is safe with us.
