Back of the Frame
The backboards are made of MDF or Corri-cor in a thickness suitable for each frame.
Most of our frames are sealed with gummed paper tape. This keeps the framing pins in place and prevents dust getting into the frame. We do not use any tape that has a solvent adhesive.
Large frames need the addition of a sub frame. This helps to keep the frame rigid and prevents any twisting or bowing of the frame.
There are several ways of hanging the frame. D-rings and cord, strap hangers, mirror plates, security fittings, cleats and split battens. We can of course give advice about which is the most appropriate in each case.
Conservation foam board is sometimes used in large window mounts as a way of keeping artwork flat.
