Utrecht Heavy-Duty Canvas Stretcher Bars

Support, display, and preserve your larger works of art with Utrecht Heavy-Duty Canvas Stretcher Bars.

Chosen by professional painters for their reliable quality and sure value, these extra-wide, extra-sturdy bars are made from globally sourced ponderosa pine and hem fir that is seasoned and kiln-dried to resist warping over time. The stretcher bars measure 2-1/4" wide and have a 1-1/4" profile.

Corners are slotted and double-mortised, ensuring that each frame you assemble has perfectly square corners that stay that way. The stretcher bars are beveled on one side to make mounting your canvas easier.

Price is per strip, not per pair. All sizes are interchangeable.

Heavy-Duty Cross Braces — Designed to work with Utrecht Heavy-Duty Stretcher Bars, these pine cross braces give your frame extra stability. They measure 1-3/4" wide, have a 3/4" profile, and are available in a variety of sizes. For the correct fit, order the cross brace in the same size as your stretcher bar. (The actual measurement of the cross brace will be shorter, but it will be sized to fit inside the assembled frame.) Center-notched cross braces are available. Cross brace brackets (sold separately) are needed to attach these cross braces to your canvas frame.
