Aluminium Canvas Stretcher Bars
Professional artists concerned about the longevity of their work are increasingly turning to aluminium stretchers as a safe alternative.
Each aluminium stretcher is extremely lightweight, making them ideal for artists working on a large scale. Aluminium is an inert material that will not change or erode over time, and is perfect for those requiring heavy duty artwork stretcher bars. It will also not react to a shift in temperature or humidity which can often occur in a studio, gallery or storage environment.
Aluminium stretcher bars are welded in a box section and can be custom-made to any size. The face of the section is angled to create a safe distance between the canvas and underlying frame to reduce the risk of stretcher bar marks. Plywood fillets are screwed to the back of the stretcher frame so that canvas or other fabrics can be stapled or tacked onto the back.
