What is Spacer (Box) Framing?
‘Spacer’ or ‘box’ framing uses a ‘fillet’, or ‘spacer’ which runs alongside the inner edge of the frame and provides a separation between your artwork and the glass of the frame.
Why should I choose Spacer (Box) Framing?
Alongside the contemporary aesthetic achieved with spacer framing, the separation between your artwork and the glass of the frame also aids in preventing damage to your prints caused by condensation (which can result in water damage, mould, mildew or the deterioration of the surface of the image).
Spacer framing is also ideal for 3d artworks as the depth can be adjusted to accommodate your work.
We use anti-reflective Artglass as standard, which is the best option for reflective-free and neutral viewing. This incorporates a 70% UV filter to protect your valuable artwork from fading. In addition to traditional glazing, we also offer durable and lightweight Perspex – perfect for larger frames.
When in comes to passé-partout’s, or window mounts, we only use the finest 8-ply acid-free and neutral PH museum conservation-quality board, which is certified by The Fine Art Trade Guild and offers exceptional preservation qualities that conform to the highest conservation standards. The wooden mouldings we use for our framing are from sustainable sources that are managed to meet environmental, social and economic needs for both the present and future, as certified by the FSC scheme.
Once your frame is complete, appropriate fixings are then attached to the back of your frame so that your work is ready to hang. Of course, not only can our skilled team provide advice on hanging systems – but we can also offer delivery and installation services too.
