Prevent the bending, warping, and twisting caused by humidity or dryness with Best's unique museum-quality Pro-Bar System. Stable and strong, this framing system is designed with a full 1/2" relief between the canvas and stretcher bars to prevent any ghost impressions on your stretched canvas. The combination of wood and recycled aluminum creates a stronger, more rigid support great for large-format works. The stretcher bars are made of kiln-dried pine, which is attached to a specially milled 3/32" aluminum bar. The pine bar offers a smooth, rounded edge and a solid surface for stapling or tacking. The warp-resistant bars measure 1-3/8" thick and 1-7/8" wide. Best Cross Braces are recommended for frames larger than 36". Please note that even though the cross braces fit snuggly against the stretcher bars, they must be attached to the frame with cross brace brackets. Two FREE brackets are included with every cross brace purchase. (For notched braces, you'll need to place a custom order.) Best Pro-Bar Steel Corners are required to complete the system. Use four corners per frame, or eight corners for optimum strength. As an additional option for quick, easy canvas adjustment, use Best Corner Keys. The Best Pro-Bar System is made in the USA. Note   Notching requires a custom order. To place a custom cross brace order, please use the form in the Resources tab.
