Stretcher Bars and Braces


Stretch and mount cotton and linen canvas over stretcher bars and braces. Choosing the right stretcher bars is just as important as choosing the perfect canvas to paint on. Typically made from wood, metal, or a combination of the two, canvas stretcher bars are used to create the frame for finished canvas.


Cross braces provide additional support to the canvas stretcher frame, to keep it square, and to help prevent warping and twisting. Cross braces should be ordered in the same length as the stretcher bar to which they are parallel.


Cross braces can either be installed in a ladder fashion, parallel to each other, or intersecting, in a crossing manner. In order to have the cross braces intersect or cross over each other, they must be ordered notched.
