Welcome to dickblick
Known as the "Super Bar" for its strength, our heavy duty stretcher bar is made of kiln-dried, knot-free pine from Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certified suppliers. The bar has been finger spliced. Finger splicing is a method of bonding pieces of lumber together to form a very long, straight bar, that actually makes it a stronger setting for your canvas.
Each bar's profile has a ½" rise to prevent sagging, and each bar is slightly rounded at the top edge, which is ideal for accommodating various canvas weights.
Blick heavy duty stretcher bars are only for use with Blick heavy duty cross-braces.

Solid stretcher bars, best value
from Dallas, TX
I always build my own frames for custom jobs, this time it was a 36x72" frame for a commission painting. Love the quality!

Long stretcher bars are straight and true
By Mickey 2-3
from Waltham, MA
I custom-build stretched canvases for artists and I find the Blick heavy duty stretcher bars a high quality and dependable product. I sometimes worry that ordering them I will receive stretcher bars that are crooked or bent, especially on such long lengths as 78 in. But they have always been straight, of excellent quality and delivered in a perfectly reasonable time.
Best place for Heavy Duty Stretcher Bars

No need to do a lot of sanding and touching up of these stretcher bars as you do with other vendors, a good quality solid value.

heavy duty stretcher bars
Perfect for large canvases. No need for cross bars.
By Three trees
These bars are very straight and strong. They fit together very easily.
Great product. Hope the Utrect bars are as good
from Provo UT
Easy to use and strong. Won't warp.
Fine items, but somewhat damaged.
from Des Moines, Iowa
I was happy to buy the stretchers on special sale. The items are precisely made, strong and sturdy. Two of the 8 corners arrived with damage which took some repair, so that they could be fitted together. A carpenter did this for me and the stretchers were reinforced on the corners, because of the large size. I would order from Blick again, but this necessary repair was a disappointment, as I had no time to return the damaged ones and wait for replacements. I needed to use the ones I bought. Your sale prices were quite good. My canvas is stretched satisfactorily and all is well.
from Cincinnati, OH
These bars are the perfect width for a nice canvas and feel incredibly solid when in your hand. I would always recommend these for quality projects.
