Fillets

Fillets

Protecting valuable artwork requires extensive expertise in the correct conservation methods and materials to use. In many low quality picture frames, the glazing is allowed to rest directly on top of the artwork, leading to friction between the two surfaces. This can cause the breakdown of paper fibres at an accelerated rate and the piece may also inadvertently adhere to the inside of the glass, resulting in the need for costly restoration treatments later in life. John Jones invented the original paper-wrapped wood fillet which was designed to ensure there is always a safe gap between the surface of an artwork and the protective glazing. We have since pioneered and patented an inert Perspex paper wrapped fillet which is now an essential part of our museum level framing process.
