Omega Moulding becomes distributor for Variguard’s Smartglass products

Omega Moulding, the new Variguard distributor, will be showcasing VariGuard’s SmartGlass products at the 15th Annual West Coast Art and Frame Expo and National Conference.

Research Frontiers’ VariGuard business unit has announced that Omega Moulding will distribute its patented light control SmartGlass products for frames and display cases in the US and Canada.
Omega Moulding will showcase the benefits of VariGuard SmartGlass products at the 15th Annual West Coast Art and Frame Expo and National Conference being held from 19-22 January 2014.
VariGuard SmartGlass products protect artwork and historical documents by allowing light to reach these artifacts only when they are being viewed. At all other times, VariGuard display panels immediately return to their light-blocking dark state to protect these artifacts. This performance feature, unique in the industry, can reduce an artifact’s light exposure by 85-95%.
Seth Van Voorhees, President of VariGuard, commented: “We are very pleased to have a distributor with the stellar reputation and capabilities of Omega Moulding represent our VariGuard SmartGlass products in the marketplace. The Omega Moulding relationship will greatly accelerate customer knowledge of the benefits and protection that VariGuard SmartGlass products offer.”
The West Coast Art & Frame Expo is the largest national trade show in the art and framing industry. It is also the home of The National Conference, an educational program with 100 informative lectures and hands-on workshops for framers of every level. Additional information about the 15th Annual West Coast Art and Frame Expo and National Conference is available at the event website.
