Our stretcher bars are made to the highest specification and subject to careful quality control throughout production. Special attention to the shaping of the bar and corner joints guarantees that all of our bars fit neatly together and lie flat against the wall. Our stretcher bars are purpose made, ready to assemble into any size.
Choose 2 pairs of bars and slot them together. All have a bevelled edge, meaning that the stretched canvas will not show an imprint of the bars, and are designed for a seamless fit at the corners.No special tools needed for assembly, just tap together with a soft-faced hammer. Measure diagonals to check for squareness. Wooden wedges supplied with every pair are tapped into corner slots to allow re-tensioning of canvas. Slotted bars are supplied 3mm shorter than stated size to allow tensioning.
The edges are precision machined to a 2.25mm radius. This gives a crisp edge, with minimal risk of cracking the ink film. Careful machining of the slots means the bars slot together neatly and lie flat against the wall.
